Digger: Ford was a great man who restored honor and dignity to the United States Presidency and helped heal a nation after Watergate and Vietnam. He deserves no less than our respect, espically during his time of mourning for his funeral and burial.

James Bond: I love Democrat revisionist history. I don’t recall any Democrats supporting Ford in 1976, when he lost to Jimmy Carter. Democrats love to deify single-term Republican presidents. Back then, they vilified him for pardoning Nixon and being a part of the Nixon Administration. Now, they give him Profiles in Courage Awards and shower him with their crocodile tears. What vicious, bloodthirsty bastards Democrats are! So predictable.

Question: What do you think of President Gerald Ford?
