Remember the old days of politics. The press didn’t jump every story like it was the end of the earth and every politician didn’t attack each other like they wanted to spit on them. This speech optimizes old politics. Smug and pompous with a bit of humor. I’m not saying I liked Nixon and all the wrong he did just saying I’m sick of Matt Lauer and the modern media. Check out one of the speeches that began the century of public apologies. This is my favorite of all of them.
