#1 Good! Maybe we'll see less of him on teevee. Never cared for guys who wear military awards and decorations on their business suits. Makes them look like Russian Great Patriotic War veterans. Sorry Congressman West, it's just a personal thing with me. I should probably get over it.

#2 Maybe they are great patriots?

#3 military awards and decorations on their business suits
There seem to be official protocols for absolutely everything in the military - what's official protocol for military awards on civilian attire?

#4 The G-Man, man, I love that guy. I have a 5x7 autographed photo of him as he appeared back in the Watergate days.
Used to keep it prominently displayed on my desk at work when I was out in Silicon Valley. Right next to my photo of Nixon. It agitated the crap out of the liberal asshats.

#5 Nixon thought he had an administration above the law. Obama also thinks he is above the law. I didn't like it then and don't like it now. Nixon paved the way for an inept, weak President--Jimmy Carter.

#7 He must have thought a great deal of Nixon personally to keep his trap shut and get kicked around as much as he did.

More accurately, Nixon figured he could do the same things the Democrats had been doing for decades and get away with it.
I saw Liddy in person while I was in college. He and Timothy Leary were doing a speaking tour where they went head-to-head. Liddy definitely was the more coherent and personable of the two.

#9 I caught him bugging my house the other day. I told him if he didn't stop - I'd take his name off Social Security :-)

#10 That's funny Raider. Taking away his SS. Somehow, I don't think he needs it to survive. Probably did O.K.
Liddy did know how to keep his mouth shut and take his lumps. I liked listening to his radio show when he was on. A smart guy.

That is more accurate. The Corruptocrats are still plugging away to undermine things.

#12 "Taking away his SS. Somehow, I don't think he needs it to survive. Probably did O.K." yes, very well. He earned it. He had a place near Upperville Virginia. Horse riding country. Kennedy's had property in the area also. Wealthy area. When I was on a property a Fox hunt was on. They can charge right through local properties.
