Richard Nixon Where Are YouFacebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Richard Nixon called his first congressional opponent a commie, in ‘fifty senatorial race painted Helen Gahagan Duglas pink before trouncing her, and as vice president under Eisenhower snuggled with Joe McCarthy. By late ‘fifties he already wanted to invade Castro’s Cuba which however imperfect had just freed itself from American lackey Batista.

He counterattacked in ‘sixty-eight winning presidency, wiretapping opponents and intensifying Vietnam war he said knew how to end only to win which could’ve easily against George McGovern in ‘seventy-two without Watergate but seldom removed fangs and had to leave early second term.
