How much is the current Leakgate scandal the product of the same Nixon Republicans that foisted Watergate on the American people?   The links are pretty creepy. 

Here is a quote from an interview with John Dean, Richard Nixon's lawyer and famous key player in the Watergate testimonies to Congress (the full interview can be read here):

Q: Karl Rove first came to your attention during Watergate. In what ways is he the reincarnation of Nixon dirty tricksters like Charles Colson and Donald Segretti?

John Dean:  He is way beyond anything Nixon had at his disposal. He is closer to a behind-the-scenes Nixon operator named Murray Chotiner, who could cut off an opponent at the knees so quickly the person did not immediately realize he had been crippled. As I note in the book, the first time I heard the name Karl Rove was when I was asked if I knew anything about him by one of the Watergate special prosecutors who was investigating campaign dirty tricks. I didn't have any knowledge. But I recalled that question when working on this book, and located a memorandum in the files of the Watergate prosecutor's office that indicates they were asking others as well about Rove. Based on my review of the files, it appears the Watergate prosecutors were interested in Rove's activities in 1972, but because they had bigger fish to fry they did not aggressively investigate him.

So, President Bush's right-hand man was being investigated by the Watergate prosecutor's office long before he was hired by George W. Bush.  And now George W. Bush's right hand man is again being investigated by a special prosecutor.

Watergate, meet Leakgate.   Same players, different scandal.  And it all spells disaster for America.

It is time for George W. Bush to address the nation and explain why he keeps a Watergate trickster at his beck and call.  And, for goodness sake, why would President Bush--in order to win an election--give top secret security clearance to a man with a known record for breaking the law?

President Bush has some serious explaining to do.  With our soldiers at war in Iraq, the nation needs real leadership.
