Quoting Gerald Ford
When Gerald Ford became president and pardoned Tricky Dick Nixon he said, “My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”
He was wrong. It was only beginning. The Republicans at that time started to put Richard Nixon’s southern strategy into practice with a vengance. Divide and conquer was their theme. Who do you hate? We’ll hate them with you. Give us your vote. The culmination of this building horror was the Bush presidency. The same creepy crew from from Nixon and Ford’s era were with Bush.
Let’s hope, with Obama, that we are finally waking from our long national nightmare at last.
