POP QUIZ! Which Presidential Scandal Is Easiest to Ignore?

It's been a busy week. We've been studying hard, and now it's time to see if we learned anything.  Today's POP QUIZ should be easy if you've been paying attention.

Question 1: Match the President with the Presidential Scandal.

A. Richard Nixon
B. Barack Obama
C. Teddy Kennedy
D. Bill Clinton
E. None of the Above

  1. Had sex (by any normal definition) with a 21 year-old White House intern, in the Oval Office, during working hours, while his wife and daughter were upstairs. This President later lied about it but was defended by his party and is now America's Best President. Your Choice:                    
  2. After a night of drinking in July, 1969, this presumptive candidate for president in the 1972 race, drove off a bridge, killing 28 year-old teacher Mary Jo Kopechne. He left the scene of the accident in spite of the fact Ms. Kopechne's life would likely have been saved had this man called police immediately. After pleading guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and losing his driver's license for one year, thus ending his presidential aspirations, this man became the father figure to all liberals in America. Your Choice:                    
  3. After involving the US military in a civil war that ended the 40 year reign of Moammar Gaddafi, this President covered up the murder of his Ambassador to Libya and three others by insisting that an unknown anti-Islam movie by an unknown filmmaker that had only received 300 YouTube views prior to the attack was responsible for the murders. This further inflamed tensions in the region, which the President, his Secretary of State, his Press Secretary and his Ambassador to the UN all apologized for. It was later found that Al-Qa'ida was responsible for the pre-planned attacks and that the White House received information to that effect before the murders took place. This President covered up the murders in an attempt to protect his campaign assertion that the war on terror was over because he had personally ordered the killing of figurehead leader Osama bin Laden. Your Choice:                    
  4. This President was involved in covering up a break-in at Democrat Party campaign headquarters in Washington, D.C. during the summer of 1972. The crime was inconsequential and carried out by low-level political operatives, but the cover-up brought about the end of this man's presidency. Your Choice:                    

Question 2: Based on the following criteria, in order of: lives lost; reputations destroyed; depth of deceit to the American people; place the above Presidential Scandals in order, worst to least.

Worst. Your Choice:                    
Pretty Bad. Your Choice:                    
A Little Less Bad, Your Choice:                    
Regular Bad. Your Choice:                    

Question 3: Each man involved in these questions was from one political party. Can you name it? Warning: This is a trick question. Your Choice: Republican   Democrat


Answer sheet. Don't Cheat! You might think you deserve a hand-out, or a helping hand, or a level playing field, but you don't -- you're as undeserving of help as the rest of us.

Question 1: 1-D; 2-C; 3-B; 4-A
Question 2: 3,2,1,4
Question 3: Democrat. Yes, Richard Nixon called himself a Republican, but he started the EPA and instituted wage and price controls. At best he was a RINO, but RINO's are really just Democrats, aren't they?
