Charles, Charles, Charles.
In 1959, Dwight D. Eisenhower was President. Vice President Richard M. Nixon hated communism with a passion, and that photo shows it. Nixon had balls.
Nixon was not a conservative, but he inherited a global mess once he was elected in the 1968 Presidential landslide, then he swept 49 States in 1972. Was he charismatic? Not by a long shot, but voters had had enough of the Kennedy pretty boys, and saw LBJ for the racist egocentric yahoo that he was.
Nixon was the first POTUS in history to visit communist China and open up communications. Nixon ended the military draft a couple of years after you were eligible in 1971. Do you also want to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency? Nixon approved that one also.
Charles, you’re a history revisionist.
If not that, then you’re a paid tool.
If not that, then you’re a useful idiot.
Meanwhile, long time LGF regular Lawhawk chimed in to lap the lizard with this brilliance:
Douche baggage on parade.
What’s wrong with the left? They’ve been fed so much bullcrap they like the taste of it because it’s easy to digest and regurgitate, and there’s no thought required to do so. We’re not talking acid reflux here, we’re talking about pure unadulterated ignorance. The following was the highest rated (updinged) comment on Little Green Footballs sidebar tally as of 1 June 2016.
Wow. There is so much wrong with that diatribe I don’t know where to start. Only someone living in a little green bubble of ideological protection could come up with such a vapid inane stereotype of those to the right of center-left, misunderstand the basic principles of free economics and then completely misinterpret The Preamble to the U.S. Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Lawhawk, your deliberate (or pretend) ignorance of easily verified facts and discredited stereotypes is amazing, even for you.
