Richard Nixon self-impeached . . . gave us Gerald Ford as his revenge.
If Richard Nixon was second-rate, what in the world is third-rate?joseph heller
You roll back the stones, and you find slithering things. That is the world of Richard Nixon.john kenneth galbraith
In dealing with Mr. Nixon, it is not easy to be unfair. He invites and justifies all available criticism.john kenneth galbraith
Art's certainly made a lot of money, and got on a lot of shows — he got himself into the Nixon White House riding on the death of his daughter. And I think that's ghoulish! That's ghoulish.timothy leary
The two-party system has given this country the war of Lyndon Johnson, the Watergate of Nixon, and the incompetence of Carter. Saying we should keep the two-party system simply because it is working is like saying the Titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life-rafts.Eugene McCarthy
Manson's the man who's responsible for "killing the Sixties." He really knew how to play up the whole "most dangerous man alive" thing when at the time, the most dangerous man alive was Richard Nixon.john roecker
(President Nixon,) in the face of a vote to impeach he might try, as "commander-in-chief", to use military forces to keep himself in power.carl rowan
I still want my right to defend myself. A railroad operation, and you know it, from Nixon on down. they got you running around violating my constitutional rights.bobby seale
Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine.hunter s. thompson
These are harsh words for a man only recently canonized by President Clinton and my old friend George McGovern -- but I have written worse things about Nixon, many times, and the record will show that I kicked him repeatedly long before he went down. I beat him like a mad dog with mange every time I got a chance, and I am proud of it. He was scum.hunter s. thompson
I never actually got around to taping conversations with my guests, but there are a lot of things you can learn from a man like Nixon.pierre trudeau
Tell the FBI that the kidnappers should pick out a judge that Nixon wants back.william o. douglas
William Mark Felt was a traitor to Nixon and America! What he did caused 53,000 American soldiers to die for nothing in Vietnam!w. mark felt
Richard Nixon… was just offered $2 million by Schick to do a television commercial for Gillette.jerry ford
Every campaign, Garry Wills once wrote, "taught Nixon the same lesson: mobilize resentment against those in power." History taught the same to many conservative and reactionary populist movements, whose real attitude to those in power and authority was one of a servile, envious, vicarious adoration.christopher hitchens
All you kiddies remember to lay off the needle drugs, the only dope worth shooting is Richard Nixon.abbie hoffman
I am mystified. I know only one person who voted for Nixon.Pauline Kael
Joni, you have more class than Richard Nixon, Mick Jagger, and Gomer Pyle combined!joni mitchell
Nixon has the audacity to tell me to do nothing in the interest of my country until he dictactes where that interest lies. At the same time he threatens me that failure to follow his so-called advice will be to jeopardize the special relations between our two countries. I say to hell with such special relations.muhammad reza pahlavi
Nixon would like to consign us to to the level of the most backward countries in the whole Middle East. Why lower us to the standard of the Saudis rather than raising the Saudis to meet us?muhammad reza pahlavi
Nixon is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump for a speech on conservation.adlai stevenson
That's what torture does: it creates a miasma of unknowing, about as dangerous a situation in wartime as one can imagine. This hideous fate was made possible by an inexperienced president with a fundamentalist psyche and a paranoid and power-hungry vice-president who decided to embrace "the dark side" almost as soon as the second tower fell, and who is still trying to avenge Nixon. Until they are both gone from office, we are in grave danger the kind of danger that only torturers and fantasists and a security strategy based on coerced evidence can conjure up.Andrew Sullivan
If Nixon is not forced to turn over tapes of his conversations with the ring of men who were conversing on their violations of the law, then liberty will soon be dead in this nation. If Nixon gets away with that, then Nixon makes the law as he goes along not the Congress nor the courts. The old Court you and I served so long will not be worthy of its traditions if Nixon can twist, turn and fashion the law as he sees fit.Earl Warren
That Rathbun and Rinder are speaking out is a stunning reversal because they were among Miscavige's closest associates, Haldeman and Ehrlichman to his Nixon. Now they provide an unprecedented look inside the upper reaches of the tightly controlled organization.
If you were surprised when Nixon resigned, just watch what happens when I whup Foreman's behind!
