On Aug. 8, 1974, President Richard Nixon announced he would resign following damaging revelations in the Watergate scandal.**** To have a sense of shame that is less than that of Richard M. Nixon, is to have none at all. If Bush/Cheney had been the focus of Watergate, they would have brazened their way through, with Rovian guidance. Oh that Bush/Cheney had the moral sense of Nixon!! My God!!
