Leave Nixon out of the discussion, PLEASE!!!!
Look, the guy was a power hungry politician. No ifs, ands, or buts, about it. I voted for George in 1972 - my first election. If Romney possesses any of Nixon's traits, I will sit this one out.
As much as I despise Our Dear Leader, I am not much enamored of Romney. He will get my vote, ONLY because he appears to be a better choice than our current nightmare.
