Watergate Redux

As Frank Rich notes, "The current president has seen to it that even future historians won't get access to papers he wants to hide; he quietly gutted the Presidential Records Act of 1978, the very reform enacted by Congress as a post-Watergate antidote to pathological Nixonian secrecy."

I'll go farther as does Rich that this is really a re-run of Nixon. They never really beleived that anything was wrong with the tactics of Watergate and the cover-up. And the same people (Nixon-Ford) are back in charge. What a surprise.
