Richard Nixon squeaked to election in 1968 promising "peace with honor" and vowing to end the war in Vietnam. But he didn't. He expanded it, and four years later he was re-elected by the greatest landslide in American history. Keep that in mind.
Nixon did get us out of Vietnam as he promised. The last US combat troops left in March 1973. The Paris Peace Accords were supposed to provide for "peace with honor," but the NVA violated the agreement and Congress stopped the US from responding. Nixon won in a landslide in 1972 because he did get us out of Vietnam.

Excuse me, but you accidentally omitted the adjective DEMOCRATIC from the noun 'Congress' - my proofreader's eye caught it immediately.
N.B. - When I first typed that, I misspelled 'proofreader.'

Nixon won in 72 in a landslide because McGovern was a complete Idiot (although he would fit right in with today's democrat wackos )
Nixon was a disaster for Conservatives
The liberal should erect a monument to him.
He implemented all their programs
