Sen. McConnell compares Obama to Nixon

Republicans love to talk about President Reagan, but President Nixon is one guy they usually leave out of the talking points. Unless of course they are comparing him to President Obama.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell released a new ad slamming the White House, and comparing it to Nixon's administration.

But with the economy on the mend, will the White House controversies leave a political dent? Democratic strategist Doug Thornell, Politico's Rachel Smolkin, and National Review's Jim Geraghty dissects McConnell's motivations and strategies on CNN "The Lead's" politics panel. Check out the video above.
