Turley: ‘Obama Is Really the President Richard Nixon Always Wanted to Be’

A great line from George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley got some play this week on talk radio: “Barack Obama is really the President Richard Nixon always wanted to be.”

It came, on this past Tuesday’s (June 3) Hannity on FNC, in the wake of President Obama once more ignoring the law when he freed detainees at Guantanamo without giving 30-day notice to congressional intelligence committees.

As a GWU alum, it’s nice to find a comment from the mostly liberal faculty I’m pleased to promote.
