One of the hallmarks of the discredited Nixon administration was an "enemies list" of people who opposed the president. Now, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), who served for a while as a West Wing aide in
the Nixon White House said he fears that he's seeing signs of the Obama administration doing the same thing.
The story (here) is a compendium of people and companies that have dared to challenge the Obama administration on its policies.
I suppose some people might be surprised at this, but they should have listened to Chicago journalists who warned that this kind of thing wouldn't be unusual for someone who cut his political teeth with the Chicago Democratic machine.
Adviser Chuck Colson compiled the enemies list for Nixon. Who should be surprised if Rahm Emanuel, the hardball chief of staff, is compiling such a list for Obama.
