Richard Nixon on his 100th Birthday

Sperenza is correct that Richard Nixon was no conservative. 
Yesterday was Nixon's 100th birthday.  Nixon's legacy is complex and ultimately tragic.

A big government pro safety net Republican, despised by the left--could Nixon be George W. Bush's real father?  And it is hard to believe he was younger than Ronald Reagan.  Unlike the optimistic Reagan, Nixon was cursed with chip on his shoulder and resentment to East coast establishment types and a lack of any vision of what conservatism was.
