He was *quite* an interesting guy....
Liddy used to have a radio talk show and was fantastic to listen to. Too many memorable stories to cover them all. The one about his trial was one of the best. Seems one of the agents during the Watergate break in was Hispanic. The prosecution had him on the stand and wanted him to identify Liddy as the break in team lead. After hmming and hawing a bit, the prosecutor got frustrated and asked why he couldn't identify him. "He was white. And all you white guys look the same to me."
Yup, listened to his show during the Clinton years
He was awesome. Loved listening to him on the radio
Shoot them in the head. No body armor.Quote from G Gordon about feds at your door. Prescient.
Many didn't like Gordon Liddy, due to the fact that he was a super Patriot, in most ways. I was born in 1960, so the Watergate events unfolded as I was just becoming aware of political happenings. While I didn't care much about it at the time, I certainly knew what was going on, and the players.Of course I knew that Nixon was crooked, at the time, but I also gave him slack as he was the president and I was a Patriot and thought that he was just trying to help protect the country. I guess it was at that time that I first realized that the government would willingly lie to the American people, not to just protect the country, but to cover their asses. I guess we lost our virginity in a way, back then.I look to others who have done similar things, and find it hard to hold them to any higher standard than Liddy, Chuck Colson, or the rest. Look at men like Ollie North, among I am sure others. I have to cut them slack, thinking that they honestly believed that they thought that the criminal behavior that they engaged in was justified since they were trying to protect the country and it's people. Some might say that North didn't commit any crime, but I disagree. However, like Hillary Clinton herself said, at this point, what difference does it really make? His service to this nation, as great as it was for so many years, cost him a lot of his reputation, for a long time, and parts of it will never be recovered. He could have been a contender for national office or a presidential advisor that would have been a great help to a man like Donald Trump, who needed a loyal and smart and savvy man with a military mind.Looking only at G. Gordon Liddy, sometimes it takes a hard man to do a hard job. Our nation will always need men like him. RIP, to a man of many layers.
Well said Pipen51.I also agree that DJT needed men such as Oliver North as advisors.
At one time "the end justifies the means" had merit, though that too has mostly eroded away with today's treasonous players.
Met him once had him sign his autobiography and his 2 novels subscribed to he newsletter for a while and had some of his stacked and packed calendars he did have an eye for the ladies with weapons and was fun to listen to.
His book "Will" convinced me he was A) insane and B) the guy you want on your side.
His calendars always had pretty women, enhanced boobies and stockings. These will be missed most of all
A Legend passes.
I met him once, at CPAC 1995, I believe. He was standing by himself trying to get some food after a long day. I was just a young puke, but I loved listening to his radio show and couldn't resist saying hello to him. He couldn't have been nicer. We exchanged our pleasantries and he gave me a moment I'll never forget. RIP.
