In what must be a nice change of pace for Republicans, this week Jon Stewart has dedicated the opening of every ‘Daily Show’ episode to bashing Barack Obama.

On Wednesday evening, in response to various GOP high-ups accusing the President of purposeful corruption and Nixonian tactics, Stewart posed this question: Is Obama really Nixon, or is he simply Mr. Magoo?

Stewart’s point is quite simple: Until someone proves that the President was complicit in allowing one or more of these scandals to, you know, become a scandal – all he’s guilty of is being a bad manager. And while that isn’t exactly something the leader of the free world should boast about, it’s better than being a proven criminal like Nixon was.
