Passing of a decent man

Gerald R. Ford

38th president

1913 — 2006

Gerald Ford was an accidental president who nonetheless was probably one of the best suited for the position to ever hold that office. He was known for his sense of decency and being a voice of reason during the many years he served in Congress prior to his vice presidential appointment and presidential ascendancy.

Although his pardon of Nixon was highly unpopular with the public, history has shown that Ford made the right decision which helped prevent plunging the national psyche even more into the depths of funk.

Ford’s presidency was short and his WIN (Whip Inflation Now) buttons were a bit silly but he was the right man office serving at the right time. Above all, Ford was by all accounts a very decent man. Our current and future presidents could certainly use Gerald Ford as a role model.
