If the President is involved in the gun planting operation, then "fast & furious".

"Fast & Furious" is still under investigation. However, without a doubt it has negatively impacted more lives than Watergate. It may come down as one of the most corrupt, illegal, and dangerous secret operations of the US government aside from the horrors of eugenics and medical testing via innoculation of infectious diseases on unsuspecting/unconsenting peoples. That this administration's intent to use it to abolish the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and American's basic human right of self-defense makes it all the more evil.

Until we know the details you cannot compare them.

Did this go all the way to the top like Watergate did ?
We don't know.

Did anyone die as a result of Watergate? I think the number of agencies likely involved, even if proven that Obama was clueless to the operation (highly doubtful), still makes it worse.

As far as "Fast & Furious" it would seem the following agencies had to have had early knowledge, cooperation, and possibly funding in addition to BATFE:

DOJ
State Dept.
DHS
DEA
USBP
and possibly ICE

If these agencies are responsible or complicit with the arming of terrorist organizations with whom we have an active "war on drugs" (drug cartels responsible for mass deaths along our border) isn't that dancing dagerously close with the definition of treason?

Watergate was a disgrace to our country and an embarrassment, but no one died. Fast and Fuious has caused lives. What do you think is worse?

we dont know what Bammer knew and when he knew it.

I suspect at the end of the day, regardless of the truth, bammer will be protected and watergate will be considered worse.
