Ok, guys I know these aren't deathlist candidates, but just for a little history lesson with the outing of "Deep Throat". I wonder who the major players are who are left. I can only think of Dean, Colson, and Hunt. Does anyone know who else is left.

Jeb Stuart Magruder(now an ordained minister), Alexander Haig(went on to fame after Ronald Reagan was shot by saying "I'm in charge here"), Robert Bork(lost a Supreme Court appointing due to disgruntled Democrats who were sore that Nixon resigned before they could impeach him.), William Rucklehaus and of course as Matt said G.Gordon "Will" Liddy who orchestrated the whole darned thing.

 

A rather low level figure in the entire hearings which followed the breakin was none other than (Mr.) Hillary Rodham (who then went on to marry Slick Willie Clinton). She was doing some legal research and setting the paving stones for her future run as Supreme Dictator. Uh, no, I meant to say Do-Nothing Senator from New York State.

According to here hes very alive http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Patrick_Gray

Thanks for that info. I wasn't for sure if Gray was still around or not. There's been little mention of him this past week other than his relationship with Nixon and Felt in the early 70s.

Liddy probably won't die until he is well into his 100's!

It was reported on Thursday that Nixon aide Chuck Colson had died. He hadn't. He has now.

Edited by DevonDeathTrip
Post moved to correct thread. Spelling corrected, spacing added between punctuation marks, apostrophe inserted and broken link fixed. Other than that, the orginal post was fine.

Our esteemed poster, AngryGreatness gave me the idea for this topic, when he posted about the death of Julian Goodman, who was on the list, in the Watergate Figures thread.

 

I decided to start a whole new thread for Dick's enemies. There were a few, maybe 10, for which I couldn't find birthdates, but they probably weren't/aren't very notable, so I decided not to include them.

Would Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein also fit in this thread?

Being a little too young for watergate after reading a little about it and seeing his enemy list , it seems to me Nixon tried to turn the USA in a dictatorship .

 

Political opponents and anyone who disagreed with him seemed to be the people on his list.

Are you Tempus in disguise?

 

No, I wanted this to be a thread on its own, and somebody moved all the comments from the other one into this post. It made no sense. Watergate and Nixon's Enemies List are two different things. The people on that list had nothing to do with Watergate, for the most part. I don't understand the opposition to it being its own thread...

I merged the threads because there was already a Nixon thread (Allbeit disguised as this Watergate thread) and didn't see the point of having another 2.

 

However, I can delete and merge the posts if you want to start another Nixons enemies thread I'll merge them to your new thread. I didn't quite understand why a new thread was created so I merged them.

Well, apologies for the confusion. I do think it merits its own thread, personally. I understand this thread is kind of a catch all for Nixon, but the enemies list would be better if it was at the top of a post of its own. That way, people could check up on the "progress" and what not. If you could do that, it would be great. Thanks and apologies again.
