I’m not a great fan of Nixon’s, although for different reasons than the MSM. For instance, he was the guy who established the EPA.
But Watergate was a very minor infraction, which was set off in the first place by some crooked shennanigans by the Democrats. Numerous Presidents—Democrats especially, have done many worse things.
Watergate was all about headlines. Headlines across the top of the front page of the Washington Compost and the NY Times, day after day after day. What had Nixon done to deserve this kind of unprecedented coverage? Little or nothing. What they really resented is that he had gone after some of their Communist pals earlier.
If Nixon had faults, and he certainly had some, it was his willingness to lean to the left from time to time.
Correct. Nixon was driven from office for having exposed a few of the traitors liberals put into government and tolerated. Watergate was nothing. His truly toxic legacy was the EPA, the Philadelphia Plan (affirmative action), a declinist foreign policy, Burger, Blackmun, etc.
That he did, but I remember him affectionately.
He did love America, and the fault I see that cost him the most was his inability to think like a criminal, that's why the leftists and Marxists got over on him so easily.
A criminal or Marxist could see how the EPA could be used far beyond it's intended purpose, an honest man would read it in it's spirit.
Having sex in the Oval Office, fine. Just don't expect others to go to prison to protect your God-given "right" to have an intern lick your anus. Ref: Starr Report.
