Now that there is downright funny…

  1. Goodness, mriggio! 🙂 He has the right of it. What a good laugh, and I believe there is truth in it. Nixon may have been a scoundrel, and immersed in corrupt politics, but he sure didn’t drive the country over the cliff. Nor did he deliberately set her up to become a Socialist/Communist nation.

  2. In my book conservative Floridians have been the masters of political bumperstickers ever since the 2000 Gore Debacle Election Challenge arising out of Broward County. Months after the whole scandal was initiated by the LibDems in Fort Lauderdale, conservatives who owned restaurants, hotels, there and in Orlando displayed fake ballot boxes by their register or check out with a sign “[more Dem] Votes here.” And my favorite bumpersticker: “2000 Election: Putting the Duh in Florida.”

  3. That’s kinda funny but I bet the car owner didn’t live through the wage freeze in ’71 or the 10% surtax on taxes in ’72. Yep, only a man destined for ultimate failure could have allowed such.

    Still, that’s a clever bumper sticker.

    • And he signed legislation creating the EPA. He was competent in some areas, but he was wy too much about getting over and getting even. Punishing his enemies. Enemies list. Wait a minute…..what year is this?

  4. Nixon was no prize in my book. He may not have passed the Great Society but he did his damnedest to make it bigger and more unmanageable for the future. Plus he created the EPA, imposed price controls, and was responsible for gas rationing all over the country. And then there is the totally unnecessary and stupid scandal of Watergate that he allowed to happen on his watch.

  5. You have to be old(er) to enjoy that, MrRiggio. Great insights to recognize it. Being from the town that stole the ’60 election from him, and changed American history in so many ways,(the Great Society could only have been built over the tomb of JFK, never his living body…I could go on, but think you’d do it much better)…there is a kind of irony you bringing this here.

    I never liked Nixon, but he was a sad man in many ways. It was his bad luck to the a getaway driver in a bank heist, and the prosecutor offered a deal to the robbers in order to get the driver. Bad joss. he shoulda stayed in used cars.
    But by today’s standards, yes, we all should miss him.

    • Hi Mr B! Yes, you’re right, older. Sometimes I forget that instead of the smartest guy in the room, I’m just the oldest! Still, it tickled me to see that somebody would create a bumper sticker favorably comparing Our Great Embarrassment to teh One, rather than the usual scapegoat, James Earl Carter. As far as the Enemy© is concerned, you can’t get any lower than Nixon who, even in death, is beyond rehab. Cheers!
