Watergate Sowed A Lasting Cynicism

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1TU33YzvkM&feature=related  Just viewed this historic video about Watergate.  Afterwards, reviewing it, the title caught my attention.  784 days that changed America.  365 +365 equals 2 years. add 54 days and I realized that the Democrat opposition to the landslide Republican election victory lasted 2 years 54 days.  I have written about this elsewhere.  However, one point for this blog.  Not one person was killed by Watergate.  Yet, the Democrat controlled Senate held daily hearings on the “lying” Nixon for 784 days.  I remember that at times the hearings went on into the midnight hours.  Finally, the will of voters in 48 States that had elected Nixon, was thwarted by Sam Erwin, Judge Scirica, and the Watergate Special Committee.  Is it any wonder that since that time there is great scepticism on the part of the public and all parties as to the motives and integrity of the Democrat party and their henchmen in the bureaucracy?  Just a thought, but I consider it a thought to be considered seriously.
