Regarding the recent Obama administration scandals, The Sun editorial makes a correct analysis that Republican "overreaching," "hyperbolic comparison to Watergate," "calls for a special prosecutor," and "talk about impeachment" of President Barack Obama are based on hope and accusation, not on any evidence, so far ("GOP can't help itself," May 21).
The Republican Party has not learned its lesson from the impeachment of President Bill Clinton that personal popularity and the overwhelming protection from the media are the best insulators from getting fired from the president's job. Unlike Richard Nixon, Presidents Clinton and Obama have enjoyed both.
It will be amusing to watch once again how the Republican Party can snatch defeat out of the jaws of winning the high ground on the scandals.
