    Nixon never got over having the 60 election perhaps stolen from him and that accentuated his feelings of paranoia to the point he was worried about McGovern winning even though everyone knew it was going to be a massive blowout for Nixon-especially after his first running mate pulled out

    Number of US Ambassadors who were killed and dragged through the streets of a foreign city while superiors dithered in Watergate: 0

    I have to agree with others that this SHOULD be a much bigger scandal but probably won't be. Tells me a lot about just how bad the partisanship is in this country. People ARE dead because of this incident.

    that is correct. And should Obama be re-elected next week, and the Republicans retain control of the House, I strongly in the most emphatic terms possible would urge them to go ahead and impeach President Obama without a crime to charge him with. I would absolutely LOVE to see that happen.

    The man was still mentally unfit for the office of the Presidency, just look how it turned out. A normal person gets stabbed in the back, they learn a lesson and adapt. For Nixon, it only made his condition worse.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Christ, CP, I just Googled that. I hadn't heard that. What horrible images for his friends and family. Just awful. I now completely agree that the President should have cancelled his campaigning for a few days. Yuck.

    I don't have much use for him but recognizing Red China might have been the single most brilliant FP coupe in my lifetime (born in 59)
