PotUS Power- Tricky Dick

Hey Friends, Countrymen lend me your ears,

We come not to praise PotUS but bury him... Actually, we wanna thank our new friends and backers and all those who've helped us tremendously. Please feel free to post our link everywhere you think appropriate:0) kck.st/1E3iIxA

But, we don't come empty handed, we offer some Presidential tidbits. For instance, an interesting ditty from Tricky Dick (that's Richard M. Nixon to you folks:) He made one incredibly prescient comment that came true in spades. He was famous for saying something to the effect of, "These East Coast, liberal elite types should really be more supportive of me. They have no idea what's coming up behind me." Considering this is the guy who wanted to firebomb the Brookings Institute, indict editors from the Washington Post, burglarize Daniel Ellsburg's shrink's office, and start the whole 'Swift Boating' of a young former Navy Intel officer by the name of John Kerry in 1971, (He didn't care much for Kerry's testimony in front of the Senate, the story was bogus then, and all media sources saw right through it, somehow it gained tremendous traction 33 years later in 2004.) That's a pretty bold statement, but seeing how thing's have played out the last few years... I'd say pretty accurate. To Nixon's credit he did help institute the EPA, was really instrumental in toning down the Cold War w/ USSR w/ Salt 1, Salt 2, and Detente and helped open relations w/ China.

Our next update will be a tidbit about Harry S. Truman. Each of our updates will include a bit from a former PotUS we mention in the script.

Thanks again,

Joe A
