What a Difference 40 Years Makes - Or Could the Difference be the Political Parties Involved?

40 years ago President Nixon was hounded from office by the media partly due to unbelievable story regarding 18 minutes of erased tape. Now, an administration claims they lost two years of emails to and from the President Obama's lead IRS henchman (henchwoman?) and media yawns and says "Yeah, that could happen."
IRS Says It Lost Two Years of Lerner E-mails

House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp has hit a roadblock in his investigation of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups: The IRS says it has lost over two years’ worth of e-mails sent by former agency official Lois Lerner, the one of the chief subjects of the committee’s investigation.
But don't worry, we were assured there's "not a smidgeon of corruption" in the IRS targeting scandal by the president himself during an interview on Superbowl Sunday which was intended to fool the average person who doesn't have time to follow the many scandals of this corrupt administration. Sadly, the current Congress is too cowardly to impeach the president out of fear of being labeled racist which apparently is worse than being known as cowards unwilling to do their duty. UPDATE: Finally got around to finding this iconic picture. Did Lois Lerner stretch like Rose Mary Woods for two years?

Most presidents try to do or release something significant to push scandal to the back of people's minds. Obama rolls out another scandal or ineptitude to make people forget the last foul up. The worst part is I don't think he does it on purpose.

Not sure which is worse. I'm almost more worried that we have a president so inept that his actions are not on purpose.
