At least Nixon had the gumption to resign when he was caught in lies and scandal. Obama just whines and tries to pin things on the Republicans.

Or how about the MASSIVE increase of SS that he gave that is one of the root causes of the unsustainable debt that we see today? That debt is not hurting anyone... Yet
I am not an Obama fan by any stretch. But to say that Obama hurt more people than Nixon is pretty far fetched.
Even all of the Nobel Peace Prize Winner's UAV strikes cannot compare to damage done by the escalation of VietNam.
As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. - John Stuart Mill
But you are wrong about Collateral Damage not being of concern, lots of valid military tagets in and around Hanoi and Haiphong were not attacked because of the concern of civilian casualities and collateral damage. In Cambodia even with Sihanouk in charge, Nixon asked for approval to bomb to eastern enclaves of the NVA. The North Vietnamese had always insisted they had no troops there. Sihanouk also knew that the NVA in that region had forced all Cambodians out of their areas of control, supply depots and sanctuaries. Sihanouk gave his tacit approval by saying something akin to, "How can you bomb something that is not there."
The meaning was since the NVA wasn't there, per the North Vietnamese, the bombing wouldn't be actually taking place since America wasn't bombing something that wasn't there.
Nixon never did invade Laos as he did with troops into Cambodia for those couple of months with the blessing of the then Cambodian president Lon Nol.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
