"not a realy good episode because...
nixon was evil.
nixon got to be president 2 times.
at the end te started a rampage.
the people at that time who were compeating sucked.
and every one was happy about it!!!"

1) Nixon has always been evil
2)Same as number one
3)Same as numbers 2 & 3
4) They were clones of each other, not to far from dsome of the candidates of today...
5)Earth's faith in its president is blind in the future, much in the same ways America's faith in Bush is also blind.

As far as Futurama episodes go, you couldn't ask for a better episode. Solid plot, funny moments, and great references to history and media. A+

not a good episode as it lacked in jokes but the plot was resonable

Nixon was very funny. I enjoyed this episode. Bender was also great, even without his body.

In my opinion this was a hilarious episode. Bender is extremely funny in this one,"I'll give you five dollars to not do what your thinking about doing, HeHeHe, you just lost five dollars." Laughed all the way through.

Nixon bashing is great fun! The end robot body for Nixon reminds me of Transformers in all the right ways.If only they would try doing the old show with a 3D animation style like Futurama uses...

I think Groening woke up on the wrong side of the bed when he cowrote this one. I can't remember ever having seen such angry, bitter satire. No longer do they poke fun at Nixon, now they are pi$$ing on his grave. While he makes a funny President of the World in later episodes, I think Futurama crossed the line here. It's a cartoon! Lighten up! And it's the year 3000: can we somehow escape the Baby Boomer icons of the 60's era?
