Sorry, I think I try to find fault in all our politicians, but in this case, two examples really stick out in my mind. While I have immense respect for the man who got us out of Vietnam, one of his biggest failures was giving Richard Nixon a full pardon. That was cronieism (sp?) at its worst. And secondly, in a televised debate in 1976, he said possibly the dumbest thing. He asserted, for the entirety of a two minute rebuttal that in 1976, countries like Romania and Poland were not under Soviet control or subject to their will. That was completly untrue, of course.

But like I said, he gotus out of Vietnam, so my hat's off to him. RIP Mr. Ford.
