Nixon and Bush

Digby reminds me of something I hadn't thought about given Bush's recent pronouncement that Tom DeLay is innocent:
Tom Delay and Charlie Manson

by digby

Matthews mentioned the fact on his show today that Nixon got in trouble for saying that Charles Manson was guilty while he was still on trial. It's true. It was a big brouhaha because it used to be considered very inappropriate for a president to weigh in on the guilt or innocence of a defendent because of the possibility he might taint the Jury Pool.
It was a very big deal. Nixon was attacked roundly for influencing the jury pool.

Don't think I've seen much of an uproar about Bush with DeLay. But then, IOKIYAR*

*It's OK if you're a Republican
