[efoods]A top Senate Republican will take to the floor Wednesday morning to suggest that the Obama White House is plotting a political strategy similar to that of ex-President Richard Nixon and may be on the verge of preparing its own “enemies list.”
Senate Republican Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, who served in the Nixon White House, plans to offer what he will say is a “friendly suggestion” to the White House not to repeat the errors he saw committed by the staff of the disgraced former president.
“Based upon that experience and my forty years since then in and out of public life I want to make what I hope will be taken as a friendly suggestion to President Obama and his White House: don’t create an enemies list,” Alexander will say, according to a copy of his remarks obtained by Roll Call.
