NBC reports Ford was alienated from the modern Republican Party





NBC Nightly News reported this evening that Gerald Ford made disparaging remarks about Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush in interviews with Michael Beschloss in the mid-1990s. The network played tapes from the interviews. Ford said he was disappointed Reagan had declined to campaign for him in 1976 in several key states, saying this cost him the election. Ford said he knew for a fact that both Barbara and George H.W. Bush supported abortion rights and was sad to see he wasn't braver in resisting the rightwing pressure to adopt an anti-abortion position. Click on the SOURCE link above to watch the video.
