Richard M. Nixon was given numerous chances to become president. Why? With the failed election of 1960 to JFK, why did the Republicans ask for him to come back. Usually, a loss of the presidency is political death for someone trying again.
Especially in the age of technology.

Why did Lendon Johnson not run for a second term in 1968? He would have easily won. No one wants to give up that kind of power, so why did he. Was he making way for Richard Nixon and the only person in the way was Robert Kennedy who was killed. Johnsons not accepting the second term is very suspect and the many deaths made way for Richard Nixon. Who had the power to do tell Johnson to move aside (look for a LBJ and Nixon connection) and also to get rid of a sitting president JFK and future president RFK. It goes back to the "whole bay of pigs thing".

Nixon had some powerful friends because the door to the presidency was opened pretty easily and conviently. Where did most of the money for Richard Nixons first election of 1960 come from and 1968? Money usually leads to source.

Was Nixon just someones *puppet* or did he win with his smooth charm and wit
John Kennedy stole the election of 1960 and Richard Nixon stole it from RFK. I guess all is even. But the path was made easy for Nixon in 1968.
Follow the money trail, thats how Nixon was taken down.

One more thing. Nixon lost the California governors race of 1962 and said he woudl retire from politics. So someone had to bring him back from that as well.

Easy one....try the families that run the FED. They had the power to get Nixon elected, get RFK and JFK killed and to tell LBJ to step down or be dealt with in another manner.

They thought they had the power to get Nixon elected in 1960, but they under-estimated the competition and certainly under-estimated the capabilities of Joe Kennedy Sr. to get his son in office. The Internattional Banking Cabal that runs the FED was certainly not going to allow another Kennedy to beat Nixon in 1968.

I think that's highly questionable, I'm not sure where you're getting this from.

He had major problems in the primaries and with his own party which is why he withdrew. Even if he did manage to be renominated by his party, I seriously doubt he would have won reelection.

Nixon was once VicePresident to President Eisenhower
'Ike' warned the populace of the dangers of the Military Industrial Complex

'tricky Dick' Nixon was the posterboy for that MIComplex
think of elites/master-minds/NWO types back before 1960 & that's the MIComplex

Lyndon had the Presidency engineered into his hands, but the cabal of elites/NWO
sacrificed LBJs presidency & reelection chances by engineering the Gulf-of-Tonkin
Incident (the forerunner of the Iraq WMD/nuke threat reason to escalate war)
And LBJ knew his rising-star was s-h-o-t, so he declined to seek a 2nd term!

BTW, all these neocons that got control of the GOP & directed the policy of the GWBush administration...were originally from the Nixon uber-kinder elites
, who considered themselves destined to forge the national direction toward global supremacy by force. Nixon & that whole mindset were actually neo-nazi(ish)

keep in mind that the Rockefellers were in the same camp with Nixon, power-mongers...
research just who-what-why the WTC & the twintowers were constructed for...........................................................................
oops,........I hear no-th-ing...I see no-th-ing....

Nixon had a lot of German cronies.....Kissinger was another. And the Rockefellers built the WTC.....and of course Nixon handed the Presdiency to Ford (from the Warren Commission) and his VP was Nelson Rockefeller (who had serious designs on the presidency himself)......The Rockefellers are certainly Illuminati/NWO...whatever you want to call them....International Banking Cabal Scum Bags.....

I really don't think people understand how screwed up the US has been for a long time now and how bad the path we are heading down is!!

But anyway...what is your point?

Richard Milhaus Nixon

As I heard it, after Navy service in War 2, Nixon answered an ad for a GOP candidate to run for Congressman in his heavily Democratic home district. This would have been 1948. He won the seat. In 1950, he ran against the liberal Senator Helen Gohagen Douglas. He began his red baiting career by accusing her of having Communist or “Fellow Travelers” (GOP slander) supporting her. He won that race. Joe McCarthy, Jr. 2 for 2.

A lack-luster junior senator, he was offered to balance the Eisenhower ticket, Ike then being a Pennsylvania resident. The geographical balanced ticket concept was very traditional. Robert A. Taft of Ohio had been promised the 1952 nomination when he agreed not to fight New York’s Tom Dewey seeking a re-match of his 1944 losing run against a sick and non-campaigning FDR who then lost to HST in 1948.

Ike was the great war hero who wrote a very well received book entitled “Crusade in Europe.” Well, he was listed as the author. I don’t think anyone thought it was his actual work-product but it was based on his dairies and other papers. Back then we did not acknowledge ghost writers. He had been president of Columbia U. and then the first head of NATO, appointed by HST. It was said the Dems sought him out to run on their 1952 ticket, but I kinda doubt that. HST hand picked his candidate for 1952, Adlai Stevenson of Illinois. But I digress.

Nixon was caught taking about $40,000 in unreported campaign money called a “slush fund.” He was about to be taken off the ticket - recall Mondale and Eagleton? - but Ike allowed Nixon to make a public appeal on the then new national tv. He made what became known as the “Checkers” speech. Checkers was a cocker-spaniel given to his 2 daughters by a political friend, and Nixon boldly asserted he would not give it back! The dog became a metaphor for the money. The speech resonated although he did not deny taking the money and never answered the charge directly. The public loved the little dog. And his two cute daughters. Nixon stayed on the ticket and the rest is history. [Senators and Representatives were paid $15,000 a year then.]

On Nixon and Watergate - A Theory

Let’s agree on two givens. The first, that Nixon was one of the most astute politicians of his era. The second, that Nixon knew from the start of the 1972 campaign that he would win and win handily.

The 1972 Democratic nominee was Senator George McGovern of South Dakota. He was by far too nice a guy and too far to the left and too honest to ever win a presidential election. So why did Nixon engage the White House Plumbers?

It all began in June, 1971, when the NYTimes and WPost began to publish exerts leaked from a 7,000 page report prepared by Pentagon researcher Daniel Ellsberg. The Report included the real history of the Vietnam War. The Pentagon Papers documented the discrepancies [lies] between the facts as known by the Pentagon - Department of Defense - and the public statements made by the DoD and the White House relative to the progress of the War, or the lack thereof. The Attorney General on Nixon’s orders sought to prevent the further publication of leaks based on the claim of national security.

John Dean, White House counsel and Nixon's assistant, brought in former CIA employee G. [for George] Gordon Liddy, to head a team of “black bag” operatives later known as the “White House Plumbers.” It was Liddy’s assignment to stop the leak! It was suspected that Ellsberg was the source of the leaks. It was also known that Ellsberg had been seeing a psychiatrist. On Nixon’s orders, Liddy masterminded a break-in of the doctor’s office and the copying of his file on Ellsberg. It was planned to use this personal information to either dissuade Ellsberg from further leaks or to discredit him if that failed, by “leaking” this private material.

In October, 1971, the Unitarian Universalist Church’s printing house arm printed a summary based on the entire 7,000 pages and the Pentagon Papers became a best seller with over 1 million copies sold. See link following. www.uuworld.org...

Fast forward to the late summer of 1972. The Committee to Re-elect the President (acronym CREEP) was pleased with the probable outcome in all the big states. Nixon looked to be a shoo-in and to win in a landslide. But Nixon was not content. He carried a unrelenting memory of the 1960 race when JFK had won by a narrow margin, less than one vote for each of the 110,000 precincts in America. Illinois had been the pivotal state and it was widely believed that the first Mayor Daley had rigged the vote count in Chicago in favor of JFK, using money furnished by old Joe Kennedy, Jack’s father.

Conjecture. Looking for some “logical” reason why Nixon would feel any need to order more blackbag operations by Liddy, including the repeated break-ins at Larry O’Brien’s Watergate Complex DNC chairman’s office. Note: there may have been other illegal operations but that trail was left undisturbed when the link to Watergate and the Oval Office became apparent to investigators.

Resume. I am left with this suggestion. George Washington had carried every state in the nation’s first election of 1789. He was elected unanimously. Nixon was poised to equal Washington’s unmatched record. How better to “slap” the voters for rejecting him in 1960, and to gain a permanent place in history? After 1972, it would always be "Washington and Nixon!" To accomplish a feat even the 4 term president FDR could not equal, if he, Nixon, could carry every state! To be elected unanimously. Note: DC was casting 3 electoral votes, but DC was never in play for the Republicans. Besides, DC was not a state. As it turned out, Nixon carried all states except South Dakota and Massachusetts and the non-state, District of Columbia.

I assert it was Nixon’s motive to carry all 50 states that gave us Watergate. To be sure of an electoral sweep, Nixon needed to know what Larry O’Brien knew and what O'Brien was planning for the Democrats. This and this alone - an unanimous electoral victory - is sufficient reason to explain why a brilliant politician who knew he was winning, would risk everything and commit a crime, by operating a burglary ring out of the Oval Office. All for an unnecessary wire tap on O’Brien’s phone. I rest my case.

Lyndon Johnson didn't run because he was VERY unpopular at the time for his involvment in and refusal to get out of Vietnam, which was way more unpopular a war than the Iraq war, as unpopular as that is.

LBJ was simply responding to public pressure regarding the war and the certain election failure he would meet.

And One More Thing . .

On one of the Nixon tapes, when the ‘Plumbers’ were in jail, we hear the President say to John Dean “not to worry about money, he has plenty in the safe” apparently alluding to a safe in the Oval Office. John Dean later estimated there was over $1 million in cash in the safe. We also know Nixon was chummy with Florida banker Beebe Rebozo of the Florida Gold Coast. Beebe owned a fine residence on Biscayne Bay where Nixon often visited. There is also a famous picture showing Nixon and Rebozo sipping drinks on Rebozo’s luxury yacht docked by his house.

It was a custom in America that newly appointed ambassadors would have a private, personal audience with the president before entering upon their duties. It was also a custom for the appointees to bring a bag full of cash to leave behind. It was rumored that posting to the Court of Saint James was equal to $100,000 cash. Other less sought after posts cost proportionally less. Nixon did not invent this practice. As they say in court, it was the rule as far back as the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. Don’t forget Nixon drove a 3 year old Oldsmobile to Washington when he was elected a senator in 1950. He was a multi-millionaire by 1975. Not bad on government pay. Although there was a good case of tax evasion at best, bribery at worst, this was not pursued, and regardless, the pardon by Gerald Ford www.watergate.info... covered Nixon from the first day he was in office until his last day.

I bring this up not to further defame the dead, but to remind us that Nixon did a lot of good things for America. He is famous for restoring our relations with China. He signed into law the Revenue Sharing Act, one of the most valuable enactments of Congress. He ordered the vigorous enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act which gave women equal rights in sports, among other things. The Environmental Protection Agency was created during his presidency. He actually advocated a guaranteed annual wage for the poor but the Democratic Congress refused to pass it. They were accused of holding back because they did not want to see the GOP able to claim a concern for the poor. That was their domain. www.pbs.org...

I offer that Nixon’s two great failures were 1) the failure to end the Vietnam War quickly after he won the 1968 election on that implied promise, and of course, 2) his Watergate fiasco. Otherwise, I would not trade one Nixon for 10 Bush43s.

Nixon is a very brilliant man, however he lost to Kennedy cause he looked ugly as hell on first televised debate with Kennedy. He should have wear makeup. Like Gore did.

Hubris. Bad in people, tragic in a country. In early 1954, I flew from Tachikawa AB in Japan to Seoul (K16) on a C124 on its way to French Indo China loaded with medical supplies for the French Foreign Legion, then fighting the Vietminh in Vietnam. After the fall of Dien Bien Phu, the French gave up all claims on Vietnam at the Geneva Peace Conference. The United States began that slow slide down the slippery road into Vietnam thinking we could do what the French could not do. Prop up a puppet regime that was widely unpopular with the great majority of the Vietnamese people. Hubris. In an overabundant supply.

We ought to have learned two lessons from our mis-adventure in Vietnam.

1) There is no easy way for a great power to admit failure. Staying on past your time will not make a terrible situation better.
2) No lasting harm will come to the great power after it has gone. Life goes on despite our own doubts at the time.

It is too bad we did not learn that lesson in Vietnam and apply it to Iraq. We have lost 3,000 KIA and we have killed 1000s of Iraqi all in vain. For a misguided cause, poorly planned and tragically executed. We have destroyed a working country and will leave it in chaos.

Johnson thought he knew what he was doing in Vietnam, but he had no clue so he stepped down. Nixon however knew the situation: Soviet vs American. That is what made Nixon a great president. JFK looked better on tv.

The dragon was slain long ago, get over the fact that the Rockefellers are gone. Think Saudi Royal Family.

I think you need to ask E. Howard Hunt, LBJ had only a 1 term presidential deal.
