  •  "Why are these assholes turning on me?" ~ Nixon (6+ / 0-)

    Nixon's statement following the Kent State Shootings: ''should remind us all once again that when dissent turns to violence, it invites tragedy.''

    If you think Nixon was to the Left of Obama then you obviously don't remember Nixon's presidency, and have bought into the meme those who are trying to rehabilitate Nixon's historical image.
