Wait, I thought conservatives hated Nixon now because he was too 'liberal.'
 
2013-08-02 02:10:24 AM  
How could you do that to Nixon, you dolt?!
 
2013-08-02 05:13:14 AM  
When you have to lionize Nixon to make your party not look so bad, you've lost.

Just because Nixon was a crook doesn't make telling half the story and dishonestly editing quotes okay. Report the story honestly and let him be judged fairly if you're so confident in his unpleasantness.

"Meanwhile, CNN Films has commissioned a documentary about Hillary Clinton, and from the director's tone it may portray her in a much more positive light despite her husband's impeachment from office"

So why Ben, should Hilary be blamed for her husband's indiscretions? Are you really that dickish and vengeful?

Did they forget his illegal bombing of Cambodia and Laos?

I keep reading the CNN isn't doing so well as Fox News has the right, MSNBC the left and CNN only get those who lost the remote.  So now they try to be a little biased to up ratings and ad dollars and people get bent out of shape.
 
2013-08-02 07:56:43 AM  
I didn't watch. did they omit:

Created the EPA
The Clean air Act
OSHA
Health Insurance reform
De-Segregation
Ending Johnson's Viet Nam war
Opening Diplomatic ties to China
Entering into nuclear arms talks with USSR

Probably the best president in my lifetime.  (Kennedy was befor my time)

Meanwhile, CNN Films has commissioned a documentary about Hillary Clinton, and from the director's tone it may portray her in a much more positive light despite her husband's impeachment from office

Translation: It's so terribly unfair.  You can easily see the bias by taking a look at this film that hasn't been made and nobody's seen based upon pre-conceived conclusions I've dreamed up.  Plus, over a decade later, I still lay awake at night thinking about Bill Clinton's cock.

I watched it last night.  It was pretty fair.  The movie showed a lot of his major accomplishments, like opening relations with China, and it showed the scandal that brought him down.

The statements on homosexuality destroying the Greeks and Romans were bizarre.  It was also a bit strange that after every speech, he had his chief of staff call everyone to ask what they thought about it and report back to him.  Nixon was kind of an odd cat.

Wrong Comic, This is todays Hope and change.

According to at least one of his many Social Security cards, Sunday marks the alleged birthday of Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama. The president is turning 52 which, by almost unbelievable coincidence, is also the exact number of weeks each year he lies his butt off, creates dissent, and cripples the American economy! There's one for Ripley's Believe it or Not!

The president has already been presented with a cake by Nancy Pelosi, whom a spokesman described as being  "known for her affinity for dark chocolate" We can only pray that this in reference to the cake itself, and not some personal gift she's planning on sharing with Obama involving lingerie and WD-40.

The birthday boy was able to enjoy not only his own slice of cake, but also an extra slice which was left over because, for reasons still unexplained, Ambassador Chris Stevens failed to show up for the party.

In any event, Hope n' Change Cartoons wants to wish the president the very happiest of birthdays.

Specifically, we "want to" - but can't and won't. Because what we really wish is that his sorry keester would be dragged before several investigating committees which would put him under oath about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and the IRS attack on conservatives (you know, the scandals that the President and Jay Carnie dismiss as being phoney ) We wish we could ask him why people really can't keep their health insurance policies if they liked them, and why Obamacare is raising costs by preposterous margins and pushing people out of the system instead of in?

We wish we could find out why he hates small businesses and American energy production. We wish we could force him to tell us why he identifies with Trayvon Martin but not the black kids in Chicago being killed by other black kids, why the Ft. Hood massacre was an incident of "workplace violence," and why the Whitehouse is closed to ordinary visitors but is still wide open to celebrity galas and five-star (well, maybe one star and a crescent moon) Ramadan dinners?

But none of these wishes is likely to come true. No, this miserable little sheepdip who made his political name by squeaking "present!" in the Illinois Senate will be opening expensive presents from his various syncophants, toadies, and special interest lobbyists.

And of course, he'll be opening a very special present from Hope n' Change Cartoons, too.  And it will look a lot like dark chocolate. Bon app
étit!

Watergate was just a campaign prank against a clear loser that got blown out of proportion.  Nixon was a far better president than any of the men that came after him.

Ford - a place holder
Carter - I hope you didn't want an economy
Reagan - IranContra/savings&loan and on and on
Bush I - a bizarre follow on to Reagan (I mean Dakakis really guys?)
Clinton - Whitewater/sex scandals/deregulating the mortgage industry/foster/wag the dog and on and on
Bush II - are you kidding me? (best thing he did was spend most of his time on vacation)
Obama - Fast & Furious/Solyndra and I'm not sure about Benghazi (Milhouse: Can I get an update?)

Basically everybody just assumes that Nixon was the worst president ever and they couldn't be more wrong.
