93! God Bless Him! He was like the back-up QB that got the ball in the 3rd quarter with his team down 35-0. Mop-up duty ain't pretty.

I always rather liked Ford. Actually seemed like a decent guy, and that's saying a lot given my opinion of politicians in general.

Last reasonable Republican president. I actually quite liked him as a man.

His wife is very cool.

I have my questions about the man. He was a leak to the FBI during the Warren Commission. I question how he becomes the Vice President and then the President.

Likeable, sure....

He did his part in the Coup D'etate and became the first unelected President.

Gerald Pardoned Nixon for "the good of the country". He was a believer that investigating the connections of the CIA would hurt the country. WHY?

It was not the first time he did something for the good of the country to protect the FBI and CIA.



Would you describe this as going through the neck?





Would you? Seriously.....

Who changed the statement in the Warren Commission Report to read the bullet entered Kennedy's neck?


The initial draft of the report stated:
"A bullet had entered his back at a point slightly above
the shoulder to the right of the spine."


Ford wanted it to read:
"A bullet had entered the back of his neck slightly to the right of the spine."

Gerald Ford.

Why?

Because there had to be only one shooter to prevent further investigations.

There is NO WAY, John Connely gets seven wounds sitting in front of the President if the bullet goes into the back.

Sorry, he may have been a nice guy, but the truth was of no concern to him.

Well, he was a politician/member of the government. You expect honest? Sorry. That just doesn't happen.

ANYWAY, can we just pay our respects and leave the political debates to the other 339473258942 threads?

The man helped prevent a proper investigation of the Assasination of a President.

I respect his belief that he did it for the good of the country.

I did not realize that the assasination of a Preisdent was a debatable political issue.
