Pat Buchanan who is definitely a true loyalist to Richard Nixon, but who does make some good points about President Nixon pre-Watergate and what the man and his administration had accomplished. But that just makes Watergate and the Nixon White House’s involvement including the President himself that more tragic and just backs that up even more. You have the great side of Richard Nixon as far as the visionary thinker and his intelligence that allowed for him to accomplish everything he did as President. But then you have the destructive side of the man that somewhat at least overshadows what he accomplished as President of the United States.
