    The Democrat Congress defunded the war in Viet Nam. Nixon's peace talks were absolutely feckless.

    Nixon was the father of the EPA and OSHA. Didn't exactly rehab his image with lefties now, did it?

    All Detente did was enable the Soviet Union to forestall its inevitable collapse.

    Wage and price freeze?

    Nixon one of the better presidents indeed.
    He was paranoid enough that I could see baggers identifying with him though.

    Wage and price freezes set the table for one of the worst inflationary periods in history.

    Where Nixon is concerned, there are two or three things he did that are worthy of positive recognition.

    None of them make him one of the "better Presidents."

    When Oscar Levant was asked about Pres. Nixon's policies, he replied. "He will double-cross that bridge when he comes to it.'"
