    "...To see those monkeys from those African countries, damn them, they're
    still uncomfortable wearing shoes."

    LUV IT.

    As for Tricky Dicky, he had my vote a year later: ----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Blacks live like dogs, Mexicans are dishonest, and gays are among
    the enemies of a strong society. And the last six Roman emperors
    were "fags." Those are some of the more bizarre musings of
    President Richard M. Nixon in the 445 hours of tape recordings
    recently released by the National Archives.

    The 1971 tapes have been of historical interest but also
    embarrassing to the Nixon family, which fought to keep private a
    large portion of the recordings. A further analysis of the tapes by
    the Chicago Tribune may give an indication why.

    In an Oval Office discussion about welfare reform with top aides H.
    R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, Nixon is heard lamenting that
    the country will have "more of these little Negro bastards on the
    welfare rolls.. . . Work, work, throw 'em off the rolls. That's the

    Nixon - whose presidency included support for affirmative action
    and naming an African American to a cabinet post - then says he has
    "the greatest affection for" African Americans, but "they're not
    going to make it for 500 years."

    Then he turns to Mexicans.

    "The Mexicans are a different cup of tea," the president says.
    "They have a heritage. At the present time they steal, they're
    dishonest. They do have some concept of family life, they don't
    live like a bunch of dogs, which the Negroes do live like."

    The conversation then turns to gays in general.

    "I don't mind the homosexuality, I understand it," Nixon says.
    "Nevertheless. . .I don't think you glorify it on public television."

    Nixon goes on to say that homosexuality destroyed the Greeks. "Sure,
    Aristotle was a homo, we all know that; so was Socrates," the
    president can be heard saying on the tape.

    "But he never had the influence television had," Ehrlichman says,
    apparently referring to Socrates.

    Nixon continues, saying the "last six Roman emperors were fags.. . .
    You know what happened to the Popes? They [had sex with] the nuns,
    that's been going on for years, centuries. But the Catholic church
    went to hell three or four centuries ago. It was homosexual, and it
    had to be cleaned out. That's what's happened to Britain, it
    happened earlier to France."

    He then says that strong societies such as Russia "root 'em out.
    They don't let 'em around at all."

    "Homosexuality, dope, immorality are the enemies of strong
    societies," Nixon says. "That's why the Communists and left-wingers
    are clinging to one another. They're trying to destroy us."
