Carl Bernstein is really nothing more than another of ‘journalism’s’, one trick ponies. He’s been living off the ‘Watergate’ days for decades, desperate to revive the glory days of what is a rather dubious past. And it was over the weekend that he made what was yet another rather weak attempt when on Sunday, on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Bernstein said if President Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 presidential hopeful and ex-vice president ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden’s son Hunter Biden, it echoes the days of “Watergate.”
Bernstein said, “Well, I think the first thing is to find out exactly what has happened here. And if the reporting of Shane Harris and The Wall Street Journal is accurate and it seems to be it clearly moves toward a grievance abuse of power by the president of the United States.”
He added, “I keep getting asked are there echoes of Watergate in this? And there are in the following ways, Watergate was an attempt by Richard Nixon to undermine the democratic electoral process in the United States our basis of democracy by trying through political espionage and sabotage to nominate through political dirty tricks and misinformation its weakest candidate, George McGovern instead of its strongest candidate, Senator Edmund Muskie who Nixon didn’t want to run against.”
Bernstein continued, “And something in the same thing seems to be happening here, where Biden who Trump and his people said they fear the most in terms of being an opponent has been an object of these perhaps dirty tricks and abuses of power.” And he said, “One thing Nixon never did was engage a foreign power to investigate a candidate running for office in the United States. It is a big offense if this is what happened, and it seems to be.”
How is it that anyone with an ounce of commonsense is still able to take this boob seriously, especially whenever the subject of the conversation is President Trump? Come on folks, that old Carl is still able to convince anyone to put his raggedy old ass on television tells you all you really need to know about the current state of our supposed ‘news’ media, but then we are talking about the Communist News Network, CNN, also known as ‘fake news’ headquarters. And what is it that President Trump could do that this leftist dolt would not see as an echoing of Watergate.
But I do think that most intelligent people are able to recognize that there is a very sizable difference between Watergate and asking the government of the country where the crime was actually committed, to investigate the crime so the perpetrators can then be held criminally liable for what they have done. This boob Bernstein is like a 75-year-old ex-high school football star who caught the winning touchdown pass back in the 1964 homecoming game and never went on to do much of anything else. And today, he’s still talking about it and hoping someone, anyone, will listen.
Like I said, Bernstein is desperate for a return to his ‘glory’ days and therefore sees examples of mythical political wrongdoing everywhere that he can then uncover allowing him to regain his former stature. Poor old Carl, still trying to be relevant. He’s never recovered from having to play second fiddle to Woodward, even in the movie they cast Robert Redford as Woodward, and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein. That’s how the world sees them, Woodward as Sundance, and Bernstein as Tootsie. Must be hard on the old ego for him to be nothing more than the perennial sidekick.
Democrats always falsely accuse Republicans of doing exactly what it is that they themselves are doing, or have done. Crooked Hitlery colluded with almost everyone except the American people in her failed presidential run. ‘Creepy Joe’ used pressure to get Ukraine to drop a probe into activities of his son, Hunter . The only stories with ‘Echoes of Watergate’ in the last 5 years were Hitlery’s emails, which she got rid of in a Nixonian effort recollecting the 18 minutes of missing audiotape and O-Bummer heading up a spy operation on an opposing party’s presidential candidate.
How is what the president did is in any way, shape, or form like Watergate? Did someone break into someone’s office and steal info? Did the President then try to cover that activity up? NO! What actually undermines our Democratic electoral process is letting criminals like ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden, O-Bummer, both the Clintons and every other Democrat POS get away with committing actual crimes that they then try to project onto to those whose only ‘crime’ is that they happen to be your political opponents. This is how the Democrats have operated for decades.
Russia-Gate was said to be worse than Watergate, then Comey-Gate was worse than Watergate, Trump Tower Gate was worse than Watergate, and now Ukraine Gate is said to be worse than Watergate. Bernstein is so stupid you’d think he would tout Watergate was the worst ever, since that’s his stupid, claim to fame. He is so dense, he doesn’t even get how he is diminishing his own story. When you’re a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. When you’re Carl Bernstein, apparently everything looks like Watergate unless the players involved are, of course, Democrats.
Fine, Nixon was a Republican and was caught doing something marginally scandalous 40 some years ago. The current batch Democrat lawbreakers are guilty of doing far worse and yet there’s no outrage from boobs like Carl. It’s because they’ve merely created systems whereby they can protect one another so that none of them are ever held to account. Nixon’s crime was in trying to see what opposition who’d stolen an election from him, was up to. I would argue that that pales in comparison when placed up against what we’ve seen coming from the likes of Barry, Hitlery and Joe.
The level of insanity that we now see coming from those on the left, like Carl, has gone way beyond anything that we saw during Nixon’s presidency. And it’s all driven by their hatred of a man whose only ‘crime’ is the fact that he won an election. Well, it isn’t only that he won, it’s that he was able defeat, and in rather humiliating fashion, she who the Democrats were doing their best to sell as being the single most qualified individual EVER to run for the office she was seeking. And along comes this outsider, this complete political novice who succeeded in sending her packing.
