Video || Richard Nixon interviewed by Pat Buchanan

This is from when CNN tolerated conservatives

Thought you might like a look back at this interview, which includes some off-the-cuff remarks by Richard Nixon between a commericial break.

Who does he think the greatest politicians of the 20th century were? Thoedore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson. He calls the latter, “an animal.”

Reading a biography right now on TR as president. He is portrayed as so spontaneous, but the book reveals just how calculating he could be.

  1. Nixon was so many things, in so many matters. He offended the “war machine” by just ending the Vietnam war without their permission, he opened trade with China, all the while fighting with the MSM and great consortiums who didn’t like him at all.
    Watergate as we know it was a silly attempt to find out what the Dems knew about Nixon’s brother – a family problem that all Presidents face. Nixon paid dearly for what was a big nothing (compared to what we see today).
    My parents adored FDR, he was the greatest to them. They believed that the multi-millionaire and his blue-blood wife were concerned about the working class, the men sent to their deaths overseas, and social problems. PresTruman might have ended the great war, but it was FDR who allowed his generals to call all the shots that led to a win in Europe, the S.Pacific, and Africa.
    IMO, thinking people realize that being POTUS is an impossible job for anyone. Do it, or don’t do it, doesn’t matter because there’s always someone who will take offense.
