This carries an extra added zing from Senator Lamar Alexander, as he started his political career as a staffer to Richard Nixon. When he says a President has assumed a certain Nixonian paranoia, well, he should know. Alexander warns Barack Obama to stop building “enemies lists” in the White House and to start acting, well … presidential:

It’s lengthy and rather Senatorial, but the content packs a punch. Will other media outlets carry this? If they do, then Obama’s little war with Fox will spread to Capitol Hill, where many of his colleagues appear in order to get face time to impress the constituents back home. An ill-advised media strategy may become a political disaster in a season where Democrats can ill afford another one.
