  •  Under Nixon, rivers went from being on fire (0+ / 0-)

    to being cleaned up.  Under Nixon, our air went from "so thick you can cut it with a knife" to being cleaned up.

    Can you just imagine if Obama could implement environmental changes so sweeping as those?  Perhaps to wean us off fossil fuels?  Perhaps to modernize the energy grid?  Perhaps to implement high speed rail across the nation?

    My point is that Nixon's changes had massive effects on the health and well-being of millions of people.  And pretty quickly too.

    Just think if we could make things that degree of magnitude better for that many people today!  

    In that analysis, no Obama is not a better president than Nixon, which is a sad-F'ing-deal.  At least Obama implemented Nixon's healthcare plan.
