The most terrible thing that he did is be a Republican. This to our great MSM is worse than being a murderer.
Nixon was a republican, nothing more need be said.
Sorry, Ben Stein, but this is a stretch. Nixon wanted POWER!!
He wasn't framed. He deserved a forced resignation and infamy. And would Nixon have prevented the killing fields? I tend to doubt it.
I love Ben Stein.
Great find; thanks for posting this!
Nixon was not a ..."lying conniving seducer like Clinton...".
I think the correct phrase here is not "seducer" but "serial rapist". Clinton is a common criminal, not a good 'ol boy politician, who was indicted (by impeachment) but not convicted by the good 'ol boy network of cronies and thieves who comprise the US Senate. So, too, his "wife" is a criminal, who has yet to be indicted, but that would be too much to expect given her tentacles into too many folks.
I don't think Nixon ordered the burglary. When he found out his subordinated did this, his mistake was trying to protect them from being found out.
Remember how the Old Media treated leaker Linda Tripp?
I love Ben Stein.
It's still not certain that he lied concerning the third-rate burglary.
Lets launch an investigation into Felt's actions. Maybe we can take the traitor's pension away.
Mr. Nixon, having won the 1968 election in a squeaker, wished to manipulate the 1972 election to assure victory. Internal polling a year or two before the election indicated the only candidate over which he'd have a walk was Sen. George McGovern. Thus, the CREEP (Committee to Re-Elect the President) did what it could to aid the senator and harm his opponents.
In this, Mr. Nixon did nothing that Dammocraps haven't done before, and likely much less. But when it became apparent to the Republican leadership that Mr. Nixon had likely committed felonies, the Republican leadership informed Mr. Nixon that he had to go.
That is a critical difference between Republicans and Dammocraps. Republicans hold fast to the concept that the president may not be a felon. Dammocraps celebrate their felon presidents.
A must read.
Wow! Talk about putting things in historical perspective!
Nixon ended the war that Kennedy utterly stupidly started.
JFK sent 14,000 ground troops to vietnam with no strategy whatsoever.
That in and of itself was bad enough. He created more bureaucracy and not just by adding a few jobs but an entire agency. I could care less about Watergate. All politicians are questionable, no matter what side of the aisle.
