During the weekly “Political Insiders” segment on Sunday’s “Fox Report,” pollster Pat Caddell took aim at Democrats for not standing up to the Obama White House for what he perceived to be abuse of executive power.
Caddell described the Obama White House, including his past Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as “Nixon of steroids.”
“One of the things we should look at … the polling that shows the president’s numbers on dishonesty are record numbers and Hillary’s flipped negative from positive from a year ago,” Caddell said. “And that is because everybody is corrupt. The Menendez thing – I want to say something, he has stood up for the country and the scandal that a year ago wasn’t going anywhere and suddenly we get this leak. If you don’t think, let me tell you – this White House is Nixon on steroids. I was watching ‘All the President’s Men’ last week. And I haven’t seen it in 25 years. I was the youngest person on Nixon’s enemies list. And I want to tell you, they went after him. They are going after [David] Petraeus. Anybody who leads the fold they are going after. It is corruption and it’s Nixon on steroids. Somebody – where is somebody in my party to say they are not going to be threatened and are going to stand up for America starting with Chuck Schumer.”
