Remember how the Mainstream Media Ripped Apart President Ford?

I seem to remember comments like: “He is a dumb cluck and can’t chew gum and walk at the same time.” Don’t Democrats say that about all Republicans?
He’s dangerous to be around — constantly falling down.
“Mr. President — that’s your hand your signing!” What a klutz! (Gerald Ford passed up an NFL draft to go to law school). He was an avid skier through his 80s.)

“Too bad Squeaky Frum wasn’t a better shot.”

When will the “Free Squeaky” marches begin?

  1. we bid farewell to President Gerald Ford, we should duly note that he lived squarely in the camp of those that eschewed the opinion polls and did what he thought was the best thing for the nation. With the American public overwhelmingly in favor of a public trial for former President Richard Nixon, President Ford issued a full pardon. In his address to the nation he said, “It can go on and on, or someone must write ‘The End’ to it. I have concluded that only I can do that. And if I can, I must.”

    At the time of the pardon, Americans were overwhelmingly against the president’s decision.

    Lawyer Richard Ben-Veniste wrote in the Washington Post on Friday, December 29, 2006, “The pardon decision was met with strident criticism by much of the media. The Post equated Ford’s pardon to another chapter in the coverup; the New York Times called it “profoundly unwise, divisive and unjust” and “a body blow to [Ford’s] credibility.” With the benefit of more than 30 years of perspective, the public’s view of Ford’s decision has softened considerably.”

    Ford calmed the nation’s nerves. The Washington Post seemed to go from Pit Bull to Bassett Hound. Government order and comity were restored.

    President Ford presided over one of the saddest chapters and most joyful recoveries in American history.

    The economy’s performance during the Ford years was nothing short of miserable. America was largely out of Vietnam after withdrawing troops and leaving an IOU promising military support like air power in case the South Vietnamese army got into trouble. When trouble loomed, President Ford petitioned the Democrat controlled Congress for funding support. The Democrats sent a denial: sentencing many hundreds of thousand and perhaps millions of Vietnamese allied with America to a life on the run or in prison or both.

    The economy never recovered and Vietnam became a Communist country: but the Nation, the United States of America recovered nonetheless.

    President Ford brought a relatively unknown money man named Alan Greenspan into the government. President Ford was in favor of nuclear and solar power to help curtail polution and to reduce the U.S. reliance upon oil from the Middle East. Still he knew we’d be engaged in the Middle East for a long time. He favored an Indian Ocean U.S. Navy Fleet and associated bases, including big improvements for Diego Garcia.

    President Ford had a lot of vision that he didn’t get much credit for.
