"If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin".

LordJiro: Destructor: whidbey: Citations needed.

What, and give away Nixon's secret plan to end the war? I'll never talk.

whidbey: While downplaying the Watergate crimes and not even acknowledging the things Nixon didn't caught doing, abuses of power which trump anything the other Presidents you mentioned did. Nixon is hands down is one of the worst we ever had, and almost brought the country to violence with his reckless paranoid bullshiat.

Well, let us see the scoreboard so far...

1  Nixon instructed his cabinet to obstruct investigations (Obamacare, quesitonable. IRS, not cabinet level, maybe)
2 Bombed Laos and Cambodia (drone attacks)
3 Wiretaps (NSA)
4 Campaign finance abuse (IRS scandal)
5 Nixon covered up illegal actions of others (IRS, Benghazi... ?)

No kidding. The moment Obama is mentioned in the company of Nixon, Reagan and Bush's legacy of paranoia, corruption and failed neo-conservative imperialism, it turns into a Bill Cosby routine:


RIIIIGHT.

SCROTUS's furious five are rogue ideologues whose sole mission is to hand the keys to the kingdom to the winners of economic Darwinism. You just became a blight in the eyes of a purer class of people. Enjoy your future. All that cheep money from the Fed sure has lead to a lot of consolidated power...hmmm.

monoski: Tricky Chicken: Bith Set Me Up: The same Supreme Court that practically gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 thinks the same Richard Nixon that pioneered the Southern Strategy wasn't so bad? What a shock.

I screwed you all, but thanks for blaming it on the black guy.

Implying he is a racist? The desegragation guy? Please read just even a tiny bit about what he did. You know aside from the watergate scandal you fixate upon.  You guys are as bad as the republicans are about Lewinski.  At least Nixon didn't perjure himself in a lawsuit against himself.

remember racist means more than being against black people then go look up Nixon's comments on Jews and come back with your defense of his open mindedness.


Ok where are the goalposts now? OP implied he was anti-black.  I countered with deseg.  You introduce anti-semitism? Why?

Makes sense considering republicans think corruption only occurs if you stain blue dresses or show pics of your junk.

Makh: I think they just changed the writing on the barn.

Also sadly, Nixon is worlds better than what his party puts out today.


The Bush cabinet just WAS a lot of the Nixon cabinet.
