Posted on 06/02/2005 8:21:22 PM PDT by John Robertson
While many MSM'ers (sorry, most) are lionizing this guy as "a hero," someone who "did what he had to do," something big is being missed.
Our side has pointed out that he authorized/engineered illegal breakins himself...
And that he turned on the Whitehouse because he didn't get the top FBI job. Now think about that....
Felt became a snitch because he didn't get something he wanted! He was an opportunist, plain and simple (and it runs in the family, apparently, as they shamelessly say they urged the old man to do it so they could all get some money). Yeah, a real hero.
But here's what I haven't seen....
If they had made him the head of the FBI, he WOULD NOT have turned on the Whitehouse.
In fact, as head of the FBI....
HE WOULD HAVE HELPED THEM BURY WATERGATE!
I will never believe a single word John Dean ever utters. That scumbag is the lowest form of life on the planet
To begin with, we'd still have the Panama Canal and Khomeini would have never carried out his coup in Iran. When a weak man is in the Oval Office, evil flourishes worldwide.
Alas, re Erlichman...dead men can't defend themselves.
We KNOW Felt is a lying, opportunistic, amoral reptile. My money is with yours: He would not have turned on Nixon.
He's been pretty good on this one with Keith Olbermann, much as I hate to admit it.
I'm with you--but it always has gotten to me.
Yes. Thanks! And like I said yesterday; it needs it's own thread!! (hint, hint)
"I will never believe a single word John Dean ever utters. That scumbag is the lowest form of life on the planet."
Agree with the first...asking you to reconsider the second. I think Mark Felt is right down there with him.
Very interesting, but not surprising. So many on the left have risen to where they are becuase of their love of Communism.
Speaking of Olberman
What did W. Mark Felt know, and when did he know it?- (Felt might be an imposter,taking the fall)
And we might have a free South Vietnam, too.
Doncha' love it! Now WHY isn't this being broadcast over hill and dale???? And why, 30 years ago, was nothing ever said about Bernstein's backgroud and maybe HIS motive???
Nixon was hugely flawed, to put it lightly.
But as for his being "no hero," I disagree.
Flawed hero, but an exceptional man, who showed great courage, often. We will see him rehabilitated, in time.
"We will see him rehabilitated, in time."
I pray it's in his daughter's time. God bless them.
Maybe. That is speculation. Obviously however, Felt had no interest in saving the Nixon administration from itself.
Same prayers here.
