Watergate burglar: Obama 'most corrupt ever'

Barack Obama’s administration is the most corrupt ever to occupy the White House declared Watergate burglar and retiring radio talk star G. Gordon Liddy.

With tomorrow marking the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break in, Liddy was speaking today in an interview on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio.

Liddy was the chief operative for the White House Plumbers unit that existed during Richard Nixon’s presidency.

Klein asked Liddy: “You lived through and in fact were a part of different presidential administrations. … Looking now at Barack Obama’s previous four years, have you ever seen a White House administration as corrupt as this one?”

“No,” replied Liddy. “It’s just astonishing. They can’t tell the truth to save their souls. They came into office making all sorts of promises about being transparent and all the rest of it. And they just demonstrated that either they don’t know how or they [have deliberately] chosen not to be. But it’s very disappointing to the American electorate how these people failed to live up to their promises.”

The 82-year-old Liddy last week announced his retirement from nearly 20 years in talk radio, effective July 27.

He told Klein he decided to transition from his show because “most people my age have long since retired.”

“I kept going pretty much as long as I could,” he said, adding his family would like to see more of him.

Asked if he has any pearls of wisdom for the younger generation of radio hosts, Liddy responded: “First of all, you’ve got to tell the truth on the air and build a reputation of integrity that way. And while you are telling the truth, you have got to entertain them. You have to be knowledgeable and you have to be truthful and you have to be entertaining. If you do that you will get listeners to listen to you.”

At the risk of it being a "pot calling the kettle black" moment for Liddy, one DOES have to acknowledge the sad trending downward in quality of American Presidential matterial...
Especially since Bill Clinton, whom I never thought was really all that bad, and now I'd give my left nut to get back in the oval oriface - I...mean office!
Yeah, that's it.

Clinton was okay financially. But I'll never forgive him for the OKC bombing. Evidence from the Whitewater investigation just happened to be in that building. I also found his reactionary gun control a bit hard to stomach.

I think he's a lot like Obama, charismatic and charming on the outside, evil and ruthless on the inside.
