More evidence that Nixon was a sociopath

In the newly-released tapes of conservations Richard Nixon had with various aides, celebrities, etc. in 1973, there's this bit taken from right after the Roe v. Wade decision:
“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding, “Or a rape.”
So, a "black" and "white" couple having a child was, in Nixon's twisted mind, equivalent to being raped and having a child. Or rather, the children so conceived were equally ill-begotten.

There must be more to say here, but I can't do it.

  1. I've often thought that it would be very interesting if there is an afterlife. I'd like to talk to Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, my great grandfather, etc.

    In this case it would be especially cool to look up Tricky Dick and ask him if he's heard about the latest residents of the White House.

  2. That's not at all evidence for him being a sociopath in any way shape or form. The fact that he was a pathological liar, was very manipulative and showed little guilt for his actions is all evidence that he was a sociopath... yet it is inconclusive evidence and really, I think he had a better managerial style than the stereotypical sociopath would.
