    I was in college when Tricky Dick was in office.

    One of my professors worked for Nixon on his very first congressional campaign. He said he saw so much crooked stuff pulled by the Republicans that he stopped having anything to do with politics after that.

    Another professor of mine had a one question essay test for our final exam. The question was "Why should Richard Nixon be impeached?". If you answered that Nixon should be impeached, you got a C. I believe I got an A.

    But you know, I'd vote for Tricky Dick right now if it was an option. Compared to Trump, Reagan, or the two Bushes, Nixon was a bleeding heart liberal.

    Yup.

    Clean Water Act? Nixon.

    EPA? Nixon.

    He even tried to get us universal healthcare.

    Still, he was a scumbucket, who wanted to puch all hippies.

    Yeah, he did some phenomenal stuff; so why did he have to be such a douche in the end?

    Like I said, I was only 11 at that time. Enlighten please.

    Doing good is like picking fresh blackberries - if it doesn't sting a little sometimes, perhaps you're doing something wrong.
