why it didn't end

long ago.

Brinkley:

It is hard to remember the time

when the American people

tended to believe

what their government said.

I can assure you tonight

with confidence

that American involvement

in this war

is coming to an end.

The day the South Vietnamese

can take over their own defense

is in sight.

Impeach Nixon now!

Man:

We're veterans of Vietnam

and we're telling the American

people that the war is wrong.

I want to ask you:

who are you going to believe,

the veterans of Vietnam

or Tricky Dick?

Operator:
Mr. President,

Dr. Kissinger, sir.

John Kerry:

Each day to facilitate the process by which

the United States washes

her hands of Vietnam

someone has to die so that

President Nixon won't be...

and these are his words...

"the first president to lose a war."

Colson:
This fellow Kerry...

Nixon:
Yeah.

Colson:

Hell, he turns out to be

really quite a phony.

Nixon:
Well,

he is sort of a phony, isn't he?

Nixon:

I realize in this room

there are many reporters

who disagree with my policy

to bring the war to an end in the way

that I believe it should be ended,

and who probably agree with the

views of the demonstrators.

I was insisting on

and worked for peace with honor.

And they wanted peace

at any price.

Impeach Nixon now,

impeach Nixon now!

Ted Kennedy:

Richard Nixon was elected to end a war.

Protestors:

Impeach Nixon now!

This bloodbath

started long ago

and we are a part of it.

And it will continue daily

as long as the war

continues.

Nixon:
Despite the fact that

many members of Congress

were making great noises

against the war,

and despite the fact that the media

was overwhelmingly against the war,

that was not the voice

of America.

The voice of America was

the Silent Majority.
