He's said that Don.
Are you both missing the "in a lot of ways" part?
Compared to the TeaGOP of today, President Nixon was somewhat "liberal" though a more practical way of putting, NOT INSANE. Nixon was a crook. but he did do some good things. The whole politics of this country has swung to the right. Balancing the budget and welfare reform were Clinton era, that makes him less liberal than Nixon.
But of course its not the President that make the country "conservative" or "liberal" its the president reflecting the will of the country. But O'Reilly's charge that President Obama is the most liberal is clearly nuts. Is he more liberal than Carter? Not a chance. But he may be the most liberal since Carter.
