Considering Nixon's actual resignation didn't take place until August of the following year, it seems incredible to imagine how the Watergate scandal would drag out for another nine months before he did.
But this week in November of 1973, ending on the 24th, it was going full blast.
President Nixon: “People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got”.
Yep, this was the week he said that. And there was also the Energy Crisis to consider, which wasn't going to go away anytime soon. The question of whether to ration gas or hike up the tax was under consideration. Ironically, it would wind up being both after a while.
No winning there. Well, not unless you were an oil company.
