More Liberal than Obama?

Mr. Obama caused quite a commotion when he tried to pitch this line to Bill O'Reilly several years back. Well, guess what, folks, on this particular point the President just may have been on to something. a) The fact that not only did Nixon not dismantle the Great Society, he enlarged it. b) The fact that he went on to sign TWO executive orders which greatly expanded the scope of affirmative action well beyond the parameters envisioned by President Kennedy. c) The fact that he actually went as far as to institute wage and price controls along the lines of Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt. And d) the fact that he was allegedly in favor of national health insurance via an employer mandate.......Yep, that's pretty darned liberal, I'd say.

Having some progressive ideas was the least of Nixon's problems.

He's the only President of my lifetime that I'd give an F to.
