What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 54 in a series – “…Nixon launched and managed five successive and overlapping wars…”

November 5th, 2019

”In the course of his five-and-a-half-year presidency, beginning in 1969, Nixon launched and managed five successive and overlapping wars—against the anti–Vietnam War movement, the news media, the Democrats, the justice system, and, finally, against history itself. All reflected a mind-set and a pattern of behavior that were uniquely and pervasively Nixon’s: a willingness to disregard the law for political advantage, and a quest for dirt and secrets about his opponents as an organizing principle of his presidency.

What was Watergate? It was Nixon’s five wars:

1. The war against the antiwar movement
2. The war on the news media”
