President Ford quiet demeanor was a refreshing contrast to the personalities of his immediate predecessors Richard M. Nixon and Lyndon B. Johnson. His common sense moderate approach to government will be treated better and better as time passes and history proves that he was right.
President Ford spared the country years of anquish & trial with his courageous and correct decision to pardon Richard M. Nixon - history has proven that he was right in making that decision. The country was able to - finally - move on and put the terrible Watergate mess behind us.
President Ford was presented with the Profiles in Courage award by Senator Edward M. Kennedy & Caroline Kennedy at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston back in May 2001 -- for his courage to put the best interests of the country first - before his own political interests -in granting the pardon to Richard M. Nixon. History has now proven that President Ford was totally correct in issuing the pardon to end the Watergate mess & tragedy that was tearing our nation apart during 1973 & 1974.
Gerald R. Ford represents what a Republican should be - moderate on social domestic issues, conservative on fiscal issues and a strong internationalist on foreign policy.
History will continue to treat President Gerald R. Ford better and better - as it should. President Gerald R. Ford is a wonderful human being - a very decent and honorable person.
Gerald Ford's quiet demeanor and steady leadership will be remembered with tremendous respect.
