Response to Attorney in Texas (Reply #125)

133. No, it was the Democrats serving in Congress that caused all that good stuff to happen.

Nixon just signed the bills in to law when he was trying to get re-elected, or while he was trying to keep from being impeached in his 2nd term.

We covered all this at the DU about a year ago, when someone else tried to give Nixon credit for the EPA, etc.
Wikipedia was most useful to see who sponsored each bill to bring all of that about.

In point of fact, Nixon wanted all of the federal environmental agencies brought under 1 umbrella, simply because he believed that it would be easier to dismantle 1 huge federal agency rather than get rid of the 20+ agencies that are now under the EPA.
His thinking was "if I eliminate 1 federal agency, I might get 1 bad headline. But, if I eliminate 26 federal agencies, then I would have to suffer getting 26 bad headlines. And people might get the idea that I am against the environment.'

He was.
That is, against the environment.

Nixon was certainly not a friend of the environment.
He didn't give a rat's ass about the environment, as he was a Republican through-and-through.
