That was then, this is now

That was then, this is now

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

From John:

Nixon and Obama on the same bumper.

In front of a Barnes & Noble in Yonkers, NY.

That was then:

Bumper Sticker - Yonkers - Nixon close up

This is now:

Bumper Sticker - Yonkers - Obama close up

Funny though…

Obama will make Nixon look relatively normal in historical terms.

A whole new standard of bad. And a rising tide of filthy water really does lift all boats, history-wise.

James Earl Carter Milhouse Obama!
(The President’s real secret name.)

Are you sure that’s our Nixon and not some liberal politician with the same name..?

At least Nixon loved the country enough to resign.

Surely that same car has not been on the road since the ’72 election. Maybe the Nixon sticker is just someone’s idea of a joke.

    Most likely, the car owner didn’t even notice someone put a Nixon sticker on it. Hard to see through the haze, if you catch my drift.

At some point, you’re forced to conclude that he is using a layer of stickers as structural reinforcement and slapped on whatever he could get.

As far as Nixon, my impression from reading RN when I was laid up after oral surgery (drugs, so YMMV) was that he took LBJ as precedent and figured that as long as he never went as far as LBJ, he was cool.

Of course, LBJ was establishment-approved and Nixon wasn’t, so Nixon resigned rather than face impeachment. (Heck, if Nixon could’ve gotten away with stonewalling like WJC did, he would’ve probably finished out his second term.)

    Of course, this is ancient history…but maybe Nixon should have just said “OK, fine. Let’s have a re-do on the election.” Didn’t he win, like, 49 states?
    Does anyone seriously think McGov would have won a re-vote?

In this case I believe the Nixon sticker is from a watch brand,
