I'm glad this community exists; no one else understands my Richard Nixon fangirlishness.
So I'm writing a report about Nixon and his presidency.
Maybe I'll post it when I finish and I can get your guys' opinions. =)
I may also post the collection of Dicks I drew in my notebook (there's one of him bowling).
Nixon is one hot piece of ass.
A random fact: I believe his shoe size was '11.' Current Mood: happy

"...we think that when we suffer a defeat, that all is ended. Not true. It's only a beginning -- always. The young must know it; the old must know it. It must always sustain us because the greatness comes not when things go always good for you, but the greatness comes when you are really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes; because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain."
Farewell to the White House staff - Richard Nixon http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/richardnixonfarewell.htm
Hey, I'm an old member of the comm but under a different user name now. I posted the formal portrait of Nixon (with Lincoln bust) that's on this comm.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention why I admire Nixon a great deal. The man had heart! Many people would have thrown in the towel if put in the same shoes throughout Nixon's life. He never gave up nor did he forget his humble beginnings as the son of a lemon farmer. Even Oliver Stone's "Nixon" was sympathetic towards Nixon at the end of the movie when the 'farewell' speech is quoted and Nixon talks about his parents.
I encourage you to watch the farewell address and read the text. Its Nixon speaking from the Heart and not from a teleprompter. Its a speech that I look towards for inspiration now and then.

Nixon is my bitch!
Yay, there's a community dedicated to the greatness that is Nixon! Unfortunately, due to history classes that all seem to end at the 1950's time period, I know almost nothing about Nixon and his administration.
:( But that doesn't stop him from being awesome!
I have a great (hah, yeah right) story about Nixon. In my AP US History class, we're preparing for the AP test that I think takes place next week. As part of our preparation, our teacher gave us a sample multiple-choice test to do. We haven't read the last three chapters in the book (one of which deals with NIXON!), so there were a few questions that none of us knew. However, the day before we took the test, I decided to skim the last three chapters, in case we didn't get around to covering them in class. So there were a few questions that I knew that the rest of the class didn't.
The next day, we went over the answers in class.
Mr. Roeder: "Vietnamization" of the Vietnam War took place under the administration of which President?
Mr. Roeder: The correct answer is Nixon.
Class: Damn it! how was I supposed to know that?
Me: YES! I got it right! I rock!
Then my friend Steve was like "How did you know the question on Nixon?" My answer was, "Nixon is my bitch!"
Yeah, I know. Great story. [/sarcasm]
I <3 Nixon! Current Mood: happy

Thirty years ago today, Nixon announced his resignation:
"I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interest of America first. America needs a full-time President and a full-time Congress, particularly at this time with problems we face at home and abroad.
To continue to fight through the months ahead for my personal vindication would almost totally absorb the time and attention of both the President and the Congress in a period when our entire focus should be on the great issues of peace abroad and prosperity without inflation at home.
Therefore, I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow. Vice President Ford will be sworn in as President at that hour in this office..."

i am not a cook
PAT NIXON'S MEATLOAF
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup finely chopped onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 slices white bead
1 cup milk
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 tablespoons tomato puree
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Melt butter in a saute pan, add garlic and saute until just golden -- do not brown. Let cool.
Dice bread and soak it in milk. In a large mixing bowl, mix ground beef by hand with sauteed onions and garlic and bread pieces. Add eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme and marjoram and mix by hand in a circular motion.
Turn this mixture into the prepared baking pan and pat into a loaf shape, leaving at least one inch of space around the edges to allow fat to run off. Brush the top with the tomato puree and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the flavors to penetrate and to firm up the loaf.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bake meatloaf on lower shelf of oven for 1 hour, or until meat is cooked through. Pour off accumulated fat several times while baking and after meat is fully cooked. Let stand on wire rack for five minutes before slicing. Makes 6 servings.
EAT THE LOAF OF NIXON!!!! Current Mood: excited

interesting facts on tricky dick:
nixon grew up in a quaker town as a quaker.
nixon squattered during law school in a shack barely off the duke university campus grounds. he got a full scholarship to law school there, but couldn't afford living expenses...a janitor once found him living in the shack, but decided not to tell the school because anyone living in those conditions without heat or electricity desperately wanted to have an education.
