Video: Mike Huckabee Compares Pres. Obama and Libya to Pres. Nixon and Watergate

Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) compared President Obama's handling of the Libya embassy attack to Watergate, reports ThinkProgress.org and Fox News (video below).

Huckabee said: “We have been flat-out lied to. They know they lied... It was a planned orchestrated attack led by terrorists, terrorists. And this White House has to explain why it hasn’t owned up to that. Why it can’t say it. I think frankly, if this issue really gets traction that it deserves..."

"... Richard Nixon was forced out of office because he lied. And because he covered some stuff up. I will be blunt and tell you this. Nobody died in Watergate. We have people who are dead because of this. There are questions to be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers."

Actually President Nixon covered up criminal activity by the Nixon administration, many of whom went to jail. There is yet to be any proof that the Obama administration has committed or covered up any crimes.
