    How do you arrive at that conclusion? What are you using as the benchmark?

    I have to admit bombing the North Veitnamese on Christmas Day had a nice Micheavellian bow on it.

    That Quaker made the Commies quake that day.

    Nixon the best President? I'm not so sure that is correct but I will say that he is like everybody else that has become President and has his share of skeletons in the closet. I have a Richard Nixon story to tell you. Years ago my wife and I were stationed at the Naval Hospital at Bethesda, MD. This is many years before we got married and way back then we were both new to the Navy and just good friends. Well, anyway to make a long story short, Mrs. BBD got the opportunity to escort a large group of patients from the Naval Hospital over to the White House for Thanksgiving Dinner. As things turned out, she was seated right beside of Pat Nixon and talked with her for the entire meal. President Nixon sat at a different table with a group of hospital patients. She had a great time and got to see some first hand stuff there at the White House. She said that Pat Nixon was a very nice and a gracious person to have dined with and she enjoyed the experience. That story doesn't sway my opinion of President Nixon in any way - just an interesting thing to have happened to my wife in her lifetime.

    He created many programs that are still in existence today, and he started a very
    important dialogue with Communist China, at a time when the United States was in conflict
    with communist in the world.

    I really didnt know he was that much of a racist. I recently heard his tapes, and he was a freaking nut. A homophobe, anti semite, anti black freaking nut racist.

    Wow. Who knew.

    Big government must be a plus in your political equation book, for you to tout that standard.

    The Watergate burglars should have killed that security guard sighting national security.

    G Gordon Liddy wanted to but the others voted to Dennys instead.
