Gerald Ford, 38th President of the United States dead at 93

In many ways that have largely gone unappreciated Gerald Ford put this country back together after the debacle of Watergate. He was the only person ever to serve as both Vice-President and President of this country without ever being elected to either office. Because of Watergate there was never a chance that he would be elected in 1976 so the Democrats were able to name anyone in the world to represent them, assured that that person would gain the Presidency.

When you read all the condescending articles in the next few days about President Ford and how he came to serve, be mindful of who that "anyone in the world" was that the Democrats chose to push him out of office with.
