152. great, since Ford is responsible for all the evil in the world
I'm glad he's dead and expect everything will return to beauty and light, just like it was before he became president. :sarcasm:

How you tag HIM with PNAC is totally beyond me. I'd stick more of the blame for necons on Scoop Jackson, the democrat for whom Wolfowitz, Perle and Feith all worked. The "neo" in neoconservative means new as in these guys were democrats and socialists (including Irving Kristol and Norman Podhoretz, considered to be the fathers of neoconservativism) who basically left the New Left to support Reagan because they hated Stalin and the New Left was more "forgiving", shall we say. History will likely show the neocons were at least right about that, don't you think? The necons were IN NO WAY associated with Nixon. They were Democrats during Nixon and Ford. And it wasn't Ford or Nixon who turned them into republicans, it was Stalin, the New Left and Reagan.

And LBJ bears FULL responsibility for escalation in Vietnam since the highest number of troops were sent in 1968, higher than ANY year of Nixon's reign. You should blame Johnson for the draft, not Nixon. (sheesh)

Scoop and Johnson should bear your rath, not Ford.

Oh, yeah, and the articles of impeachment against Nixon had NOT ONE THING to do with the war in Vietnam or the draft or Rummy or Cheney. They had to do with abuse of office as pertained to the coverup of Watergate. I'm sure a trial on dirty campaign tricks would have set this country on the right course and crushed your dreaded neocons.

But hey, its your history...revise away. But don't be too alarmed when those of us who remember it more clearly find the arguments fallacious.
