Richard Nixon quotes

Some quotes from Richard Nixon.

“Never forget, the press is the enemy. The establishment is the enemy. The professors are the enemy. Professors are the enemy. Write that on a blackboard 100 times and never forget it.”

“Politics would be a helluva good business if it weren't for the goddamned people.”

“Honesty may not be the best policy, but it is worth trying once in a while.”

“Idealism without realism is impotent. Realism without idealism is immoral.”

“The worst thing a politician can be is dull. At least I'm interesting.”

“Yet we can maintain a free society only if we recognize that in a free society no one can win all the time. No one can have his own way all the time, and no one is right all the time.”

“Let us remember that the main purpose of American aid is not to help other nations, but to help ourselves.”

“Television is to news as bumperstickers are to philosophy.”

  1. I stole some of these for my blog. Thanks.

    After John F Kennedy was murdered, Lyndon Baines Johnson was sworn in as US President on the plane. When they landed a lieutenant said, “Over there - that’s your helicopter, Mr President.” LBJ: “Son, they’re all my helicopters.”

  2. As I've seen how corrupt things really are, I've come to question the Truth I was told about Nixon. He may have been trying to help America.
