August 8, 1974, Richard Nixon (the most corrupt politician since Joe McCarty), resigned.
I met Nixon a few times, and his wife, Pat.
I was very active in his 1960 campaign in the election that Kennedy stole.
To say that I held Kennedy in abhorence is to understate the case.
Since his demise, I found out that Nixon
advocated and intentionally practiced a political philosophy
of "running on the right and governing in the center
thereby abandoning the conservatives who elected him,
so he really WAS corrupt
to that extent, as u insightfully pointed out.
I never met Joe McCarthy, but I hold him in the highest esteem and affection.
He has my gratitude; he had his heart in the right place.
OMSig David was sad.
Yes; this is true. I still have a picture c.18" x 20" on my wall
that I got at Nixon 's inaguration in 1969. I preferred Nixon to Ford.
