Dear George, ( another letter from Tricky Dick)



Dear George,
A letter from The Old Tricky Dick himself...
Frankly, you have earned this letter with alot of Hard Work. I have to write you again, because you are acting like an arrogant Frat Boy. Of course maybe I should thank you, I mean you make me look good, real good. I look like a Real Leader. I mean we know I knew about the Importance of the Inner Circle and how to properly keep Secrets. But I have to confess, you have taken Executive Privilege to a whole new level. I look like an amatuer on the Secrecy front compared to your Godfatherlike renovations.
You Know it's real funny, almost deja vu, the 2nd Summer of my 2nd term, it started to get Hot , real hot, I mean after those idiots were caught bumbling over at the Watergate in 1972 it seemed so simple- create cover. Divert the Media, and the War was going so bad, that was not too hard. But then you know all it took was ONE source of media to keep racheting the heat, and too many questions from you know Those Oversight types, and then the Coverup just wasn't tight enough.
So by 1974 Summer I guess I knew my fate was sealed, my polls were in the toilet- mid 20's and There were Hearings, and the Justice Dept was being scraped apart. And it turned out NOT all My Men, were loyal, turned out Some were loyal to the Country and the Constitution, didn't count on that. That Damn Dean Fella.

Well, hell I am sure you studied how I did what I did, and almost pulled it off. I mean you are working with ( and have worked with) some of my Sharpest , Rummy, and Dick Cheney, and Fred Thompson, and Ol'Kissenger, and Fred Fielding. I mean I know it may look bad, lying about the War , and the Missing Weapons, and starting a War, illegal torture, and that Gitmo thing, and outing a CIA agent, and firing US Attorneys,The Scooter thing, and you have had alot of Corruption and Other Problems ( Cunningham, Delay, Noe, Ney, Abramoff,Foley ) and now these damn Gonzales Hearings. But you got that smart ass Rove and some Bushies to bail you out of trouble. I mean you probally got it all covered, unless ANY of those folks like LIED to Congress. I think that might be a problem...I think they can still go to jail for that....Especially if they lied FOR You.

I mean you kind of lied to the People and your staff, and now you have kind got no one to talk to but the damn dog. You know I would never have gotten in so much trouble except for Those Tapes. You been careful, there are no tapes right? Or are there?.....

I don't know if Impeachment is the Future for you and the VP, but seems like you both have a whole lot more on the Table then we did....Whole lot.

Thanks for making me look so good.

Dick.

Very good!
I did a post comparing the two because Bush chose to emulate Nixon and pervert Religion for his gain rather than following Ford's example and keeping his religion private as should be the case.

Here is a link to one comparison if you are interested. I think you will agree!http://anaverageamericanpatriot.blogspot.com/2007/07/lessons-of-bush-and-past-unheeded-as.html

Good letter and it is so very true, Bush makes Nixon look like the child prodigy of a choir boy.

Patriot: I will link to it below, okay ? I would love to see it , because I am always fascinated by anything Nixon or Watergate.....I occasionally write George a letter, from Dick- I have not written one in awhile...and after the past month of shame and horrors , it was time...

Larry: right on...totally....

I saw a bumper sticker saying something like "I never thought I would miss Nixon," and my little heart went skippity-skippity, which in that context I had thought it would never do . . .

Donald Douglas said...

Great piece of fiction. I think you need to bone up on your Watergate history, however.

Nicely done Enigma!

I am a huge fan of creative writing. And this was very creative.

Keep up the good work!

Good piece, E (I love "that damn Dean fella"). I think Nixon would've hated George. Don't forget, Nixon was NOT the famous scion of a famous scion. Certainly Nixon never forgot that, never forgave those born-with-silver-spoon-in-nosers. ohhh, also, I believe Nixon's religiosity was for real & don't think he ever wore it on his sleeve. Unlike a certain actor prez and now this current pissant holy pretender. ~~ D.K.

DK: The funny thing is that Nixon would have hated George- for sure....and I think you are so right about George adn his acting....

Grphen: I think about Nixon and all the watergate and impeachment talk of today- but I think at this point there is no comparison....

Donald Douglas: it is just a fictional letter, a bit of cynical humor...You are right I should know more...I will re-read Worse than Watergate and ALL the Presidents Men....The sad thing is we are surving and living with the Reality of this Regime, Nixon was a man, fallible and full of Mistakes, BUT he was no arrogant Neocon.

I've also heard some fringe conservatives advocating for the reelection on Nixon.

I never thought they were serious until bush came along.

TomCat said...

Very entertaining, e4e. As much as I disliked Nixon, I'd trade him for Bush in a heartbeat.

enigma4ever said...

Re-elect Nixon....that is good....and I know for all of these years I thought he was so horrible- but after Bush he looks like a gem...
