By now it's no secret that the Obama administration is plagued by scandal. The American people have likely only seen what's at the tip of the iceberg invoking the IRS targeting, Benghazi, and the DOJ's AP/Fox/CBS taps. Many in the mainstream media have hinted that the President's response to these scandals is similar to a previous president who was plagued by scandal: Richard Nixon.
Revealing Politics created a 'mashup' of how the two presidents responded and reacted to their respective scandals to see how legitimate the claims actually were. Before watching the video below, see if you can guess which president said the statements below.
“The comments I made during this period, the comments made by my press secretary on my behalf were based on the information provided to us at the time we made those comments.”
“I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.”
“I must now turn my full attention, and I shall do so once again, to the larger duties of this office…”

Revealing Politics highlights one difference between the two U.S. Presidents: President Obama hasn't made this statement yet,
"In any organization, the man at the top must bear the responsibility. That responsibility, therefore, belongs here in this office. I accept it."
Odds we ever see that type of response from Obama?
Glenn also points out that many of Nixon's statements were made at the height of his scandals being exposes. That may not be the case for Obama. Like Krauthammer recently stated, Glenn believes that much of the most important details regarding Benghazi have yet to be uncovered.
