Nixon Was Scum

Win at any cost. That seems to have been Nixon’s election campaign strategy, and it worked. Had LBJ notified the public of information the FBI illegally gathered from an ambassador using a phone tap, then the future may have been very different.

Declassified tapes of President Lyndon Johnson’s telephone calls provide a fresh insight into his world. Among the revelations – he planned a dramatic entry into the 1968 Democratic Convention to re-join the presidential race. And he caught Richard Nixon sabotaging the Vietnam peace talks… but said nothing.

  1. Yes, he was immoral. That said, he was also vastly more progressive in his time than any prominent Republican or Democrat today. He created the EPA and advanced the civil rights campaign of the Kennedy/Johnson era. Nixon, today, would be tossed out of the GOP as a rabid socialist.
