(Fox News)   Since Richard Nixon's name is synonymous with the words "crook" and "cover-up", Fox News does the only reasonable thing to celebrate his birthday: redefine him as "liberal"   (foxnews.com) divider line 240

Holy shiat, if you want to talk about the most socialistic president, it is unquestionably Nixon.  He imposed wage and price controls for fark sake.  It was basically a 5 year plan.

Well, compared to today's GOP he is a flaming Liberal.
 
2013-01-09 05:18:58 PM
we have ample evidence that Nixon's credentials would put him starkly at odds with today's Republican Party.


Richard Nixon has been dead since 1994.

Stunning news from Yorba Linda today, as Richard Nixon's corpse climbed out of its grave and strangled John Boehner to death.

compared to today's GOP Richard III was a flaming liberal??

Hitler was too much, and I couldn't really think of any others.

Reagan was more liberal than the current Democratic Party.

Personally I like the Franco reference more that anything anyway.

 I'm honestly surprised that a opinion article Fox at least passively notes that today's right has moved away from its own history, and the labels on past leaders have changed as a result. You can make similar claims about Democrats, only they moved to the center instead of completely jumping the shark.

Wait until they find out about that Reagan fella and his own version of Big Government.

Attila the Hun was a liberal to them.

Rivers on fire and want to do something about it? Liberal.

Conservative friends, can you pin point the date you went completely insane? 1/20/09 maybe?
 
2013-01-09 08:12:10 PM
He was nothing compared to that socialist liberal, Vlad the Impaler. farking tree hugger, that one.
 
2013-01-09 08:17:20 PM
It's a shame Nixon influenced and soiled Reagan into raising taxes 11 times.
 
2013-01-09 08:27:02 PM
Nixon was so dumb he had to watch Deep Throat 11 times before he got it down Pat.
 
2013-01-09 08:28:11 PM
Genghis Khan would be a liberal to... actually, he would have fit into today's Republican Party quite well, considering how much rape he did.

Socialism is not equal to liberal. Nothing liberal about Commie Russia.

lol - how long have you been saving THAT one

I was telling the hubby about one of my memories as a kid in LA in the 70s. There were these 2 black dudes in giant afros, platform shoes and bell bottom jump suits with rhinestones. One of them picked up a paper and said "Look at the headline "Tricky Dick Pulls Out"" And they both busted up laughing. At the time I was too young to get the joke and so it stuck in my mind. Now instead I look back and think my god. WTH were we all wearing back then? Thats the real joke.

As I recall, it was sometime between 1/20/00 and 8/28/08,

Hey, it's like the old Vulcan proverb says: "Only Nixon could go to China, because you have to be a filthy stinking commie to go there."

Yes, current Republicans, compared to your irrational, ideological, reactionary insanity, Nixon was a liberal. I think that says a lot more about you (not in a good way) than it does about Nixon.
 
2013-01-09 10:06:29 PM
Newsflash:  Back then, Republicans were more liberal and Democrats were more conservative

Since the goalposts have been sent to the planet Mars on a god damn rocket full of derp, they're actually right.

Not quite, but he could pass for a Blue Dog Democrat, especially if he were from a state like Oklahoma or something.
 
2013-01-09 10:23:44 PM
You know, Nixon had some decent domestic achievements. Ask a sav...native American about his accomplishments. They've got statues of the guy on their Indian Reservations, and not because he was bad to them.

Broken Clocks, and what have you.
 
2013-01-09 10:24:23 PM

the_dude_abides: eh, about as stupid as calling obama a moderate... and i hear that ALL the time


So, if Obama isn't a moderate, what is he?

That's great! If there's anything we can all agree on, it's making fun of Richard Nixon.

EPA, OSHA, DEA... Dick wasn't about smaller government.
 
2013-01-09 10:27:11 PM
ideological flexibility and foresight demonstrated thinking that went beyond partisan divides-a brand of reasoning almost completely foreign to the right today.

And this is why the republican's lost the white house, and why they'll most likely lose the house of representin' in two years.

Nixon has united the nation.

The good news is that they're starting to realize how far right they've moved since 1992.
 
2013-01-09 10:34:03 PM
I look forward to the day when they finally realize there's just no percentage in trying to rehabilitate Joe McCarthy's image. They'll probably start calling him a liberal too.

It's really pretty funny how the behavior of the GOP sometimes has a lot in common with that of the upper echelons of the USSR.

All because GHWB gave up on voodoo economics.

Maybe he was about effective government. If there was a world where the government didn't automatically mean evil.

Who'd want to be like McCarthy's Lt. Tricky Dick? Hard to think of anything good about him except the EPA.

He is a moderate. Except when his landslide election is a widespread, populist validation of progressive ideas
