Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

Forty years of investigation, reporting, trials, debate and historical research have yielded no simple answer to how a clumsy raid of an office in the Watergate building that Nixon's spokesman termed a "third-rate burglary" became a titanic constitutional struggle and led to his resignation.
Richard Nixon's grand jury testimony about the Watergate scandal that destroyed his presidency is finally coming to light.
Thirty-five years after Richard Nixon testified secretly to a grand jury investigating Watergate, a group of historians has launched a legal bid to make public what the president said under oath about the break-in that drove him from office.
"When all the journalists, all the president's men and even the president's enemies fade into the mists of history, we have Richard Nixon left," he said. "That's what we remember."
"The shame of it all is that it didn't have to be," Stanley Kutler, the dean of Watergate historians, told The Associated Press in an interview.
