Exactly, and now they’re desperate to stop Cruz, even if it means working with the Democrats!
Pauline Kael is back.
Was. New York film critic. Her view of the world became a symbol of the “special world” these people live in. Often quoted as:
“I can’t believe Nixon won. I don’t know anyone who voted for him.”
Ah! I’ve heard people speak that quote before, without knowing the origin of it.
Same with me. Before coming across the John Podhoretz piece I’ve heard it so many times in so many variations I thought it was apocryphal.
I reckon this sophisticated New Yorker never thought her remark would become a cause célèbre of small-minded “liberal” provincialism. In Boulder, one is outnumbered by such people.
It’s getting to be that way in Lakeland too, my brother!
Gerald Ford was a good man and a President that made you feel proud.
He was a good guy. And a much better athlete than Chevy Chase.
You knew that media didn’t have much to go on to get him when they started focusing on his occasional stumbles and bad golf shots.
I loved watching Chase play Ford, back when SNL was funny.
Few remember that Gerald Ford vetoed over 50 spending bills during his short time in office. He was not a populist, he had the courage to make the right decisions for America.
It is unfortunate that the media fails to remember how courageous his decisions were while in office. In time, history will look on him him favorably for the way he carried out his duties as president.
History will not look favorably on Carter or Obama. Given time, they will lanquish will the likes of Buchanan and FDR.
Why did he lose to Carter in 1976 then?
Hey Dave! Just my opinion here…
First, a LOT of people were upset that Ford pardoned Nixon.
Second, Saturday Night Live had done a very effective job of portraying Ford as a bumbling idiot.
Not only did SNL do a very effective smear job on Ford, but a lot of voters never forgave him for pardoning Nixon.
Ford wasn’t elected, helped the Warren Commission fake evidence, pardoned Dick Nixon the slaver and murderer… a regular Generation Of Peace G.O.P. nationalsocialist. At least Reagan knocked out the Soviets. Reagan was the last Republican vote I ever cast.
