Which of the following scandals involved the greatest Presidential culpability?
How far back we going? Grant had a big one. Then there was Teapot Dome, Watergate, Iran-contra. Funny how they were all Republican scandals. The best they could get on the Dems were Kennedy's and Clinton's extra-curricular activities. Hardly on a par with the way the Reps carried on!
Answered before you even had the list up! I'm going with Iran-contra. Reagan sold arms to hostage takers and gave the proceeds to terrorists. What gets scummier than that?
In terms of sheer crapulence and general loss of life, the Iran-Contra affair was the worst thing in my lifetime.
I could care less how much toukie Kennedy or Clinton got...
Clinton is damaged because he lied under oath abut it during a deposition...
That used to be taken seriously.... I think it's called perjury.
The Libs seem to have selective memory about that.
Just as they do the Iraq war when the Democrat party gave Bush the all clear to invade Iraq...
So far, I voted for Lewinski-Lying (to a Grand Jury) because that directly involved Clinton. Nixon wasn't involved in the Watergate break in and Reagan wasn't involved at all (lol). Benghazi could top Lewinski because of the deaths involved, but it is still up in the air at this point.
Getting your dick sucked is such a scandal.
The two Republican scandals mentioned really are scandals.
The last one is just more Republican fail. Hoping something sticks to this president. What else do those idiots have?
Watergate was bad..but IMHO Iran Contra was much worse. Both had an impact on just how far the President can go..but Iran Contra had no consequences.
The other two "scandals" are trite at best.
I'm going with Benghazi because people died and the WH seemed to have
done things to downplay the whole event.
Separate names with a comma.
