Sometimes I like to take a look at history

Richard Nixon often said interesting things:

I let down my friends. I let down the country. I let down our system of government and the dreams of all those young people that ought to get into government, but think that it's all too corrupt. New York Times May 5th, 1977

"I was not lying. I said things that later on seemed to be untrue." discussing Watergate in 1978 (no intentional wrongdoing defence)

This would be an easy job if you didn't have to deal with people. Alone In the White House Pg 326

"It is necessary for me to establish a winner image.Therefore, I have to beat somebody."

He reminds me of someone. I just can't remember who, godammit.
