Perspective: Obama v. Nixon

Nixon, "Mr. Mercy."
To date, after being President of the United States for seven years, President Obama has granted a total of 318 pardons and commutations of sentence.

If, over the final months of his presidency, Obama were to grant 600 more, he would still be short of the record of mercy set by Mr. Law and Order / Retributive Justice / Lock em Up and Throw Away the Key / Republican Richard Nixon.

And, of course, Nixon left office long before his second term was complete and received 20,000 less applications.
