    New Nixon audio reveals former President's skewed view on abortion

    WASHINGTON - President Richard Nixon saw abortion as a useful option for ending mixed-race pregnancies, newly released tapes Tuesday show.
    "There are times when abortions are necessary - I know that," Nixon told aide Charles Colson on Jan. 23, 1973.
    "That's the thing about a black and a white," Nixon explained in the secretly-recorded conversation, or "a rape.
    "Same kind of thing, you know what I mean. There are times," Nixon told his aide in a hideaway next door to the White House.
    Nixon did not elaborate on whether he actually favored ending interracial pregnancies or was simply acknowledging the prevalent social stigma of that era about black and white couples.
    The 37th President did not foretell in the 150 hours of recordings released by his library, however, that the 44th President might be just such a child born of a white mother and black father.
    President Obama was 11 when Nixon was caught on tape.
    Nixon discussed his abortion views while otherwise lamenting the Supreme Court's landmark Roe vs. Wade decision that day, which legalized abortion.
    To Nixon's mind, underage girls might be encouraged to quit using birth control and "go get knocked up" because of the high court's ruling, he said.

    People just don't know how sinister that man was, I can see the same thing in Cheney.....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Can’t see what they were at, all right
    Dead cat in a top hat, wow
    Sucking on the young man’s blood
    Wishing he could come, yeah
    Sucking on the soldier’s brain
    Wishing it would be the same"
