Corrupt Nixon, Agnew, John Mitchell & the rest of them.
Remember the good old days with these people? All resigned in disgrace or jailed? All GOP. Remember John and Martha's divorce and Agnew's resignation from the VP for corruption? The 68 democratic convention and Kent State?

Do a google of these people for what the GOP is really like. Yesterday and today.

1. Shit, Nixon's lookin' good to me now
An adult in the White House who understood diplomacy and who later on said things like "The way to end war is to take the profit out of it."

3. he will never look "good" to me
too reptilian IMHO. he was elected with his promise to end the war. so many kids died over there and his bombings were horrific. he lied and my friends died.
he was more intelligent, that is for sure, and understood the globe

4. That's probably the point
I'm sorry about your friends. So when Nixon lied people died as well. We should remember that.

But I still think an intelligent reptile is infinitely preferable to our current chimpanzee.

6. Nixon's WH was a rat's nest of corruption
from him and his advisor's to his VP to his AG. Younger people don't realize it was just not Nixon, it was his entire administration that was corrupt.

Nixon did have his good points. He chose to restore diplomatic ties with China and formed the EPA. Perhaps he was a better man than those he chose to serve under him in his administration.
