    I suppose I don't need to go into how the "meany" you like is an international embarrassment. His supporters think that's a plus.

    That's my answer! Nixon was crafty & tough though not nice to be sure. I'd take that type to lead in tough times anyday!
    Nice, support one of the most vicious war criminals of all time. And, seemingly, be proud of it.

    I personally would be embarrassed to take someone out in public and have them loudly act up. I can see though we have different expectations of how adults are supposed to act.
    I think you are confusing "acting up in public" with "playing for the cameras". It seems to me that if Trump is getting under someone's skin, it's on purpose.

    Right, I guess Obama was just letting the economy coast under 3% GDP for 8 years, on purpose. And, I suppose the (literally) hundreds of regulations on businesses and industry that have been rolled back or done away with (not to mention tax reform) under Trump had absolutely NOTHING to with it, huh?

    Do you remember the first televised debate between Nixon and Kennedy?

    That was not a flattering view of old Dick right there.
    The years following Bill Clintons election to the presidency.
    I can recall that you would always see Hillary, just there in the back.
    Always smiling that crazed smile, and always riding his coattails wherever he went.
    I guess its because she knew the front of the garment was always occupied.

    Ohhh, I see - and if said person doesn't exhibit this superficial politeness, then you'll immediately seek their impeachment? This offence qualifies as "high crimes and misdemeanors"? Are you kidding me? We now see Democrats coming forth with impeachment proceedings every month, for goodness' sakes. That's a ridiculous misapplication of impeachment - a total labuse of the system.

    The questioned asked was "If Nice Guys Finish Last, Why Not Elect a Big Meanie?' and I answered it!

    Comical, would you mind elaborating on why you actually harbor the notion that Nixon is one of the most vicious war criminals of all time.

    Richard Nixon is hardly a role model, overall; he was a devious president who encouraged illegal actions by his subordinates.
    But he was a clever strategist — never more so than in the opening to China that culminated in his February 1972 visit to Beijing.
    Yet even Nixon, the practiced hypocrite, might not dare to buck conformity today.

    More importantly or as important, the benefits of Nixon's détente policies to previous cold war strategies are obvious no need to elaborate.

    American domestic realities are proving to be a major restraint on the U.S. pursuing the kind of robust, proactive foreign policy needed to contain
    two major near-peer and/or outright peer competitors Russia & Chuna. The only way to do so is to employ the type of creative diplomacy
    that has not been seen in Washington D.C. since Richard Nixon left the White House.
