Proof?
You don't seem to understand the difference between (what you think is) correlation (but isn't even that) and causality.  I'll let you and Pete enjoy your rants, since nothing I might say would deter you in any way.

I'm curious why Al lumps me with Cherry, since the last 3 posts I've made here are actual agreement with Al as to Nixon vs Hillary.  I can only assume that it's more of Al's knee jerk enmity.  There's nothing I can say to get him to actually read and respond to what was said from behind his party blinders.

No question Nixon had more than his share of outrageous deceptions.  I was saying that while Clinton's dishonesty disquiets me, that your comparison of her to Nixon is AFAIK unfair to her.

It's funny you should say that. I've come to believe that the melodrama about the horror of Nixon's actions has been largely overblown, and that his chief mistake compared to other politicians was to make a major gaff in his awareness of being recorded.

That may very well be true, but as to a case that one can make by indisputable evidence, Nixon looks worst to me as far as lying and being smug about it.

Cherry, I happen to agree with you that Clinton is garbage, but you muddy the waters and make it a lot easier for people with their heads up her behind to ignore valid criticisms when you bring up the ridiculous murder conspiracies.

Sorry, the gin and tonic kicked in quickly.  I was thinking of your comments in another thread.
