Nixon might have skated if he employed the tactics President Barack Obama’s is using in handling his controversies.“I think we have gone backwards since that time where we felt empowered as journalists.

Nixon: Painfully Shy, But Craving Great Purpose…. “Perfect candor wasn’t Richard Nixon’s strong suit.

Well, good morning. This is the Lew Rockwell Show. And what an honor, what a thrill to have on the show this morning as our guest, Mr. Roger Stone. Roger is, of course, a legendary political consultant/strategist for many important Republican politicians, Nixon, especially Reagan, Bob Dole, many others. Although, I’m glad to say he’s recently joined the Libertarian Party, rather than the Republican Party.

Castro’s anti-American rhetoric, his stated plans to nationalize foreign properties in Cuba, and his association with a number of suspected leftists including his second-in-command, Che Guevara prompted American diplomats to keep a wary eye on him.

“For the first time since President Richard M. Nixon’s divisive ‘Southern strategy’ that sent whites to the Republican Party and blacks to the Democrats …” began a New York Times story last week.

Thus has one of the big lies of U.S. political history morphed into a cliche — that Richard Nixon used racist politics to steal the South from a Democratic Party battling heroically for civil rights.
