I felt it was time to post this old article about Trudeau - Written by the highly

Maybe so, but some of his tapes were released yesterday, and CNN has put up some of his juicier quotes.

Anyway, here are some of the juicer quotes.

Still basking in the afterglow of a landslide 49-state reelection in 1972, Nixon at one point tells aide Charles Colson that he wants nothing to do with those who would advise reaching out to critics in order to try and unify the country.

“Somebody wrote me a memorandum about that and I told [White House Chief of Staff H.R.] Haldeman if anyone ever showed me that again I'm gonna flush them down the goddamn john," Nixon says.

At another point, Nixon tells then-Republican National Committee Chairman George H.W. Bush that the GOP can further boost its electoral fortunes by recruiting "attractive" women to run for office.

“Understand, I don't do it because I'm for women, but I'm doing it because I think maybe a woman might win someplace where a man might not.”

Nixon also indicates a deep distrust of his senior Cabinet officers, telling Colson on January 5, 1973, to start keeping a detailed log of phone calls made by then-National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger.

"Incidentally, I want it on his private phone too," Nixon tells Colson. "We can get that, can't we?"

What a great guy. Personally, I would think less of Trudeau if he had not been on Nixon’s enemies list.
