Could This Be Like Nixon In 1972?

As I said I had the opportunity to meet and talk to McGovern. He is a very good guy on a personal level, and he is an honest man and was a genuine war hero demonstrating great bravery in the fight against real tyranny. It was a vast experience unlike Obama. But it was a different time. The vietnam war was still in full force. There was a draft and Nixon had put in the wage and price controls, a liberal democratic idea that proved to be a disaster. The comparison to today is not really good. Besides Nixon was the incumbent

President Richard Nixon won a second term in the White House, by being the avenger of left-wing cultural chaos.

Will challenger Mitt Romney win a first term as President, because he provides a similar alternative?

This year’s election will mark the fortieth anniversary of another historic contest. In November of 1972 President Richard Nixon defeated his opponent George McGovern in the Electoral College by a landslide margin of 49 states to 1. Setting the U.S. presidential record for the widest margin of victory among the popular vote, Nixon received nearly 18 million more votes than McGovern.
