When Republicans, led by Arizona’s own Barry Goldwater, told President Nixon that the GOP was ready to join the Democrats and begin impeachment proceedings, Nixon knew the gig was up.
Are we seeing that same sense of self-preservation kick in with the Democrats and the IRS scandal? Maybe.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says “the investigation needs to continue” into possible wrongdoing at the IRS — a position that puts her at odds with many fellow Democrats.
In an interview Tuesday night, Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren noted that President Obama has called allegations the IRS targeted conservative groups a “phony scandal.” Van Susteren added a simple question: “Is it a phony scandal?”
“Well, I think that any time the IRS is involved, for many people, it’s a real scandal,” Clinton began. “And I think, though, that there are some challenges that rightly need to be made to what is being said, and I assume that the inquiry will continue.”
Maybe this is just Hillary putting distance between herself and the SS Obamic, and if it is, I expect to see many more Democrats in purple-ish districts wake up to the fact that it’s their necks on the line, not Obama’s and call for more investigation and a Special Prosecutor.
Or maybe they’ll ask for an investigation because it’s the right thing to do. One can always hope.
