@Gerry1: Nixon's actual "crime" was the SECRET recordings he made in the Oval Office itself (or other White House meeting areas) WITHOUT telling anyone they were being taped. OR letting the CIA, FBI, SS or whomever know about it either!
Then his Secretary "accidentally erased" the critical minutes of the most critically important tape of all...
IF Nixon ordered her to do it? THAT is a "high crime" (misuse of Office) and THAT is solid ground for impeachment all by itself.

remember Watergate? OF course I remember it. But Nixon ordered an illegal wiretap. I doubt the worker bees had to consult with him on how to get it done, they planned the logistics of the break in themselves. Of course, he's an accomplice in that, but it`s the Wiretapping that is the main issue.

I blamed bush for the economy and budget for 2009, that's it. Yes, but continue to ignore the deficit spending added AFTER the 2008 election. Making it "lame duck" requiring the approval of the NEXT PotUS, House and/or Senate.
GM Bailout? Added after. Obama ADDED over 200 billion in new spending just before his own record-breaking deficit & pork laden budget. (Second Stimulus, remember?) The ONLY budget he`s signed since taking office...
To "Blame Bush" for things that were added AFTER he signed it? Riiiight... I mean: Left!
