At a ceremony commemorating the late U.S. President Richard M. Nixon´s 100th birthday, politicians, a military official and Nixon´s eldest daughter on Sunday remembered him as an underappreciated president and a foreign policy genius. Nixon, the Cold War-era Republican stalwart who opened U.S. relations with communist China, was the only American president to resign from office, leaving the White House in disgrace over the Watergate scandal. ´He looked at (the world) as a world with 200 countries and 200 leaders, and he studied every one of those leaders, and he knew most of them,´ said Bruce Herschensohn,

Considering the hell of democratic policies we presently suffer, consider how "much worse" Nixon was by comparison. I truly miss him.

I remember thinking at the time that the Democrat badgering of Nixon to the point of resignation would come back to bite them eventually. But no.......the rules of logic and law and reason only apply to Republicans.

Like GWB, Millhouse was not very conservative and compromised with the left on many issues and STILL got slaughtered by the media leftists.

Sound familiar ?

It does not matter. His abuses of power made Jimmuh Carter and his subsequent ilk possible. FRor that alone he deserves our contempt.

A very misunderstood man. I admire him greatly, Watergate or not, because of the brilliance of his grasp on foreign policy.

I had the privilege of meeting President Nixon and talking to him for nearly 15 minutes. I will never forget the impression he made on me. Not only was he gracious and considerate, he had done his homework. Even though I was a nobody, he clearly knew who I was and called me by name. He not only knew why I was at this event, he addressed several pertinent areas. Then he spoke to our small group for about twenty minutes and did so without note, a prompter, coaching, or a repulsive buff armed amazon behind him.

Later, Mrs. Nixon let us on an "inside" tour of the personal areas of the White House and we had coffee with her. Like her President husband, she was gracious, charming, nice, had a wonderful sense of humor and made us feel entirely welcome.

I would give just about anything to have Richard Nixon in the White House. When I look at the lying criminal the stupid of the nation have re-elected, I shudder with fear.

During the last several, impeachable, scandals surrounding obama, I have noticed that even the republicans (a lost cause)cited the watergate scandal as the supreme scandal and shame of the politicians of this country. I am so glad I left that wretched party.

What #1 and #2 said IMO, President Nixon was a great (though not as conservative as we would like) President who was demonized by the so-called "msm" right up to his death and funeral where he was finally given the respect he deserved. BTW, President Nixon´s "misuse of power" PALES in comparison to both the clinton AND the obama "presidencies" and don´t get me started on that reprobate lyndon johnson. As the old adage goes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion about history, but NOT to their own version of that history.

Nixon was a good president. Probably not a likable guy but smart. He was one of the last honorable men to hold the office of President. Clinton let the country suffer through all his dramatics - Nixon loved his country enough to resign and save us that. At least BJ was impeached - that does make it all just a bit better.

#7, thank you very very much. I am not surprised at the way you were treated. Dr. Monica Crowley wrote a very insightful book about her years working for the former President. Indeed, he is very misunderstood and unappreciated - mostly by Republicans. He was every bit as brilliant as Clinton but never got credit for it. The left never forgave him for Alger Hiss. Needless to say, you yourself must be quite special to have been so warmly welcomed into the private world of the President and Mrs. Nixon. What an honor, J!

I am glad Tricia did this. I too believe Nixon was a great man.
Where was Julie, the younger daughter?
At one time, I believed she and her husband would have been stellar members of the Republican party. Instead there was nothing but dead silence from them both. Perhaps the anger made them shrink from the public, I don´t know.

President Nixon graduated second in his law school class at Duke. He was substantially more intelligent than JFK, but was constantly beat up by the press. He also had to work with a congress that was overly democratic. (At one point, there were just 85 republican congressmen, if my memory serves me.)
Nixon, by any measure, was also pretty liberal on domestic policy.
But he didn´t hate America.

#13, the reason you haven´t seen much of daughter Julie, and her husband David Eisenhower, is that they came out for Obama a few years ago!

I would guess that Julie & David are hanging their heads in shame now, and for that reason they´re lying low.

As for President Nixon, I always respected him, though his policies were too liberal for me. It was during the Watergate hearings that I first observed the hideous, irrational, slavering Nixon-hatred of the Left -- and that brought me out in Nixon´s defense.

Thank you, Tricia Nixon Cox, for honoring the memory of your parents by always carrying yourself with modesty, quiet dedication, and grace.

I´m still waiting to hear why people were allowed to scurry in and out of Vince Foster´s office like rats before the law enforcement officers even started their investigation. There has been so much evil on the part of democrats that has been allowed to be swept under the rug. A few two-bit spies getting caught up in Watergate is nothing compared to other events that have been swept under the rug since that time. Having a "D" next to your name is worth its weight in gold.

Many consider Nixon to have been a conservative because he was a Republican politician, but if you look closely, Nixon was really pretty much a social liberal.

# 16 - agree that anyone who would work for any Clinton would be out of their tiny minds or crave abuse. I always felt Pres. Nixon got a bad rap from the liberal press and then jolly Bob Woodward and his side kick Carl turned in their little bundle of bias and the President´s goose was cooked. I applaud Tricia´s efforts to clear her father´s reputation. What we have had since the Alinsky-ites took over is reprehensible to human beings.

In March of 1973 I received a call from a high school friend. He said his birthday had been drawn and he would be drafted. Shortly after that Nixon stopped the draft and brought our soldiers home. He ended the slaughter of our classmates and friends.

I have always felt the greatest tragedy of the US was the stolen election in 1960. Just think if Nixon had been elected President what a different country we would have today. It boggles the mind to think that the USA would not be a welfare state and there would have not been a Viet Nam.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — It didn’t take much for Ted Cruz to bring a crowd of conservatives to its feet here. By the time the Texas Republican senator finished speaking Tuesday night, an adoring audience hailed Cruz and his no-compromise, combative style of conservatism that has made him the scourge of the GOP establishment but a hero of the tea party. “Liberty is under assault today like never before,” Cruz said, pacing the stage like a televangelist. But even in deep-red South Carolina, a well-received speech full of Cruz’s signature flair is no guarantee that the firebrand politician could win the

New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday. The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however. In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
