I have been thinking about the various Presidents that I have lived under in my life and it occurs to me that Richard Nixon never seemed like that bad of a guy to me. He got us out of the Vietnam 'Police Action', reopened China to US trade and frankly, other than coming off like a d%$@, was a pretty good President.
He recorded some conversations, but ultimately, that would be a drop in the bucket by today's standards. Look at what our recent Presidents have gotten away with and it isn't even close.
So, was Nixon that bad of a guy? Did he deserve what he got? Would he have even been charged in today's environment?
What say you ATS?
Is anyone willing to cut 'Tricky Dick' some slack?
