The controversies of Watergate and Vietnam, and the resignation of Richard Nixon, tempered America's patriotism... until Ronald Reagan came along.

Almost 40 years ago, Richard Nixon became the first president to resign from office, facing almost certain impeachment for his involvement in the Watergate scandal. The most damaging evidence implicating Nixon was 3,700 hours of tape, recorded by Nixon himself between February 1971 and July 1973.
Movie Date: 'Closed Circuit,' 'Our Nixon,' 'The Grandmaster,' 'One Direction: This is Us,' and Special Guest Morgan Spurlock

In this week's Movie Date podcast, Rafer and Kristen wonder if anyone trusts the government anymore, and consider whether beauty is enough to make up for a lack of substance. They also sit down with director Morgan Spurlock to discuss his newest and very surprising film project. It's all in honor of "Closed Circuit," "Our Nixon," "The Grandmaster," and "One Direction: This is Us."

Team Mitt should view last night's losses as an opportunity: to grab the center now and secure firmer standing against President Obama in the fall.

After 22 years of mutual isolation and hostility, it was the trip that transformed the world. From February 21-28, 1972, U.S. president Richard Nixon met with Chairman Mao Zedong and Premier Zhou Enlai, and traveled through Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. In addition to formally normalizing relations between the U.S. and P.R.C., it was the first time the U.S. public had seen images of China since the communists took power.

China has existed as an independent state for close to 4,000 years. After a decline in the 20th Century, the large nation has risen to the ranks of a global superpower in recent decades, replacing the USSR as U.S. rival; but it has also been a partner. Many would argue that Dr. Henry Kissinger is the man to thank for China's current relationship with the West, and particularly the U.S. He joins us for more on that subject and his new book "On China," and also admits to mistakes in strategy by the Nixon Administration on the war in Vietnam.

People accusing Barack Obama of being insufficiently “angry” need a Shaft fix. After that, they should get back to evaluating our President as a human being rather than as a stereotype.
Yes, stereotype. How “angry” are people waiting for a United States president to look, and why so much concern about it with this president?

A note about Andrew Cuomo's campaign, which hits Carl Paladino for hiring an unsavory campaign crew.
The ad refers to Ed Cox, the New York State Republican Chairman who backed two other candidates (Steve Levy and Rick Lazio) before getting behind Paladino, thusly:
When criticizing the three other Paladino aides, the ad refers to a specific news article where their wrongdoing was reported.
For Cox, the only sourcing is a Syracuse Post-Standard article which, if you look at the ad closely, is used only as a photo credit. The rest of Cox's description is not sourced. The article referred to in the ad is, actually, pretty harmless.
