Why do libs act like Nixon was a bad president?

Most presidents have probably done things far worse than Watergate but they simply never got exposed. Nixon just had unfortunate circumstances.

Update:

Besides people only focus on Watergate because they're partisan hacks, they disregard all the good things he did for the country

    Watergate was bad! I am a conservative and I think that lying to a congressional committee, espionage, and burglary are bad!

    Nixon was not the worst president. He was able to visit China and the USSR! He signed arm reduction treaties and made peace in the middle east. But he also committed high crimes and misdemeanors while in office, so he was impeached.

    Watergate is not being focused on by partisanship, but mostly by historians. The historical evidence is overwhelming: Nixon broke the law. That fact along with his violations of the civil rights of hundreds of American citizens far overshadow his accomplishments.

    Oh, Poo. President Obama replaced into surpassed a God-undesirable mess and did some quite solid artwork antagonistic to unfair, unwarranted, unreasoned competition from each and every Republican congress member in both the domicile and the Senate. regardless of this senseless contempt from the GOP, Osama Bin laden is useless, the DOW is holding properly above 12,000 (it replaced into 6,630 in March, 2009) jobs are up, GNP is valuable, American forces have come again from that senseless conflict in Iraq, start up has been ratified, that ugly DADT regulation is history, the CFPB has been popular, Chrysler and GM are nonetheless functioning, the rotten, grasping, mastercard businesses can’t jack up your interest cost on any damn whim and ill little youthful little ones can now no longer be denied health insurance. You and something of the some distance-proper wing can look ahead to ranting, sniping, criticizing, and insulting the sitting President of u . s . a . of u . s . a . properly into January, 2017.

    I'm actually not sure.

    Nixon was the forerunner of people like Obama.

    War on Drugs.

    EPA.

    End the gold standard so the federal reserve can print as much as it wants.

    Extremely thin skinned.

    Obsessed with how he is portrayed in the media.

    If you overlook his foreign policy, which he conducted with all the enthusiasm of a little boy playing tin soldiers, Nixon was more left-wing than any president the US has had since, including Carter and Clinton. He passed a lot of good legislation, including the last serious attempt at healthcare reform. His foreign policy was a complete disaster, but in many ways he had more in common with Johnson than with Reagan. He was one of the last of the moderate Republicans.

    His paranoia is quite a legacy. Watergate is just the tip.

    It's official.

    Enough time has past that the youth don't know anything about Nixon, so he's ready to be rehabbed.
