'President Bush can still label you a threat'. President Bush? He personally labeled Danny Glover a threat? This is silly hysteria, or mud from the left wing.

Hi, KP.

How old were you in 1972? It may sound far-fetched to you, but Nixon had a personal "enemies list," and folks who were on it (mainly Democrats, of course) were subjected to all sorts of government harrassment, particularly annual IRS audits. Now we have a "Patriot Act,"according to which the Executive Branch can label anyone a "person of interest" or even "enemy combatant," without judicial oversight, and (s)he is subjected to the sort of harrassment described here (which is relatively mild), or at worst locked up in Gitmo without anyone being the wiser. The potential for abuse is enormous. We've always hoped that it's merely "potential;" this is anecdotal evidence that it may not be!

Clinton had a "personal enemies list too".

IRS audits? Yep, you were presented information regarding Clinton's use of the IRS against his enemies and accusers.

As was previously stated, the "story" is for the political purpose of demonizing and FUD.

Hi, Ed.

No, the accusation was made against Clinton, in most cases without any proof (the few cases where there was turned out to be justified, as when several "non-profit" conservative groups had that status revoked for partisan political activity). OTOH, there are tapes of Nixon talking over with his henchmen how to persecute folks on his list.
