Damn that Dick Nixon!

We all know in the long history of our great nation that truly the most vile and wicked President to ever hold the keys to the Oval Office was Richard Nixon. Nixon was such a liar that he had to get strangers to call his dogs for him. Harry Truman once said of Nixon, "Richard Nixon is a no good, lying bastard. He can lie out of both sides of his mouth at the same time, and if he ever caught himself telling the truth, he'd lie just to keep his hand in."

After a deep-water oil rig blew out almost three miles beneath the ocean surface and leaked three million barrels of oil off the California coast, that low-life Nixon visited the area.

"It is sad that it was necessary that Santa Barbara should be the example that had to bring it to the attention of the American people. What is involved is the use of our resources of the sea and of the land in a more effective way and with more concern for preserving the beauty and the natural resources that are so important to any kind of society that we want for the future. The Santa Barbara incident has frankly touched the conscience of the American people."

That's the best that lousy Nixon could do, saying "Sorry, we won't let it happen again." Then Nixon signed a moratorium outlawing deep-water oil drilling below 500 feet. For 41 years that damn Nixon moratorium stood, until an enlightened president came along who suddenly understood the importance of deep water drilling, even if he hadn't understand it on the campaign trail. That's called growing into the job!

In March of 1969, Richard Nixon did something unprecedented by American Presidents, he ordered secret bombings of a neutral state. The US Air Force began to bomb Cambodia in what was called "Operation Breakfast." There should be no comparison drawn to last month's US cruise missile strike in Yemen. Nixon was a lying son of a b*tch and Obama is a great leader, and the 26 women and children killed would tell you that, if they hadn't been blown to pieces.

Each cruise missile cost the taxpayers $600,000, or about the price of 12 school teachers' salaries. Our $600,000 killed 53 terrorists including women and children for a kill cost ratio of $11,538 each. Nixon was a lying bastard and the world and Congress condemned this kind of illegal activity by a President. That is why we can look back now with a sigh of relief, because that son of a b*tch is gone and now replaced by a true leader who isn't afraid to ramp up Predator drone attacks in Pakistan.

Even when criticized by know-nothings at the UN and in the Pakistani government, our great leader perseveres undaunted with 134 attacks this year alone!

The (UN) report also says "the covert nature of the CIA program in Pakistan is in breach of the rules governing accountability. The US government refuses to release any information about the CIA program, but its widely believed the drone aircraft mostly used in Pakistan are operated remotely by CIA staff from the agency's Langley headquarters in Virginia."

Yeah, but the US says it is entitled to carry out such strikes under laws of self-defense and the laws of war.

"Because the CIA program remains shrouded in official secrecy, the international community does not know when and where the CIA is authorized to kill, the criteria for individuals who may be killed, how it ensures killings are legal, and what follow-up there is when civilians are illegally killed."

Pussies. Don't they know this man won the Nobel Peace Prize? When Nixon secretly bombed, it was because he was a lying bastard, and when Bush did it he was a psychotic mental case. Obama is our leader and he's fighting terrorism and al-Queada and that's what millions of us voted for. Hope and Change and more killing and bombing. You know, changing the way we do business in Washington.

In July of 1969 that low-life Nixon announced the Nixon Doctrine whereby the United States would provide arms and aid -- but not military forces -- to its Asian allies. Thank God we got rid of that bullshit, huh! Not send troops. Don't be ridiculous, we have a leader now who is not afraid to send troops and, if need be, to send more and even more because that's what being a true Democratic leader is all about these days.

Then Nixon announces a plan to establish the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Thanks a lot, Dick. Guess who is underfoot now while BP is trying to clean up their little leak. Thank God we have the Coast Guard to keep those meddling reporters away!

That Nixon. Just when you think he couldn't get any worse, he up and surprises you. Nixon wanted to reform health care in America and being the slimy dog Republican that he was he was trying to force people into private healthcare groups, or HMOs. Just look at the crap this joker was trying to peddle to the American public.

"Upon adoption of appropriate Federal and State legislation, the Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan would offer to every American the same broad and balanced health protection through one of three major programs:

--Employee Health Insurance, covering most Americans and offered at their place of employment, with the cost to be shared by the employer and employee on a basis which would prevent excessive burdens on either;

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
