Nixon on Fred Thompson: Dumb as Hell

October 10, 2007 at 6:25 am 2 comments

Former president Richard Nixon showed how he really felt about now presidential candidate Fred Thompson when he said, “Oh, sh&t. He’s dumb as hell.”

Thompson was a senate lawyer during the ’70s and helped to lead the Republican side of the investigation into Nixon’s shady actions.

As the investigation picked up speed, Nixon grew increasingly concerned about whether Thompson could stand up to the Democrats.

In this May 1973 recording, he shared his concern with then-chief of staff Alexander Haig.

“He’s talking to Fred Thompson. I said you’re not –,” Haig begins.

“Oh sh–, he’s dumb as hell. Fred Thompson,” Nixon interjects. “Who is he? He won’t say anything.

Nixon had other less than flattering things to say about Thompson which you can read here.
