"and it appears to me that this gang of cutthroats in power from Obama on down...have and will continue to set the standard for corruption."
That's total hogwash, the Nixon administration set the standard for corruption. It'd be hard to find a bigger crook than Nixon and his cronies. Bush and Cheney come in a close second to Tricky Dick though. Both administrations were guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and were cutthroat criminal organisations. The Obama administration may not be totally innocent of cronyism and corruption but they don't hold a candle to those guys as far as being crooks and liars.
