    Raised tariffs and turned around economy until water gate got him.

    both parties are so far to the right that the issue of income inequality was not even on the radar screen until OWS

    dems walked away from poverty in 1980

    in summary, Obama is to the right of what used to be the Republican party in the North East. He didn't have to change parties to be the compromiser in chief.

      Nixon never turned the economy around. He and the country were plagued by inflation all throughout the early to mid-1970s and helped to make it worse with his policies, hence Ford's WIN (Whip Inflation Now) campaign in 1975-76.

      Nixon was horribly anti-union and a terrible anti-semite to boot.

      It really says something when your ODS contributes to revisionist history making Nixon a "liberal icon."
