Does anyone on this board have a problem with what Felt did? Stories about him always mention that many call(ed) him a traitor, but I've never met anyone that takes that position.

He did what was right, even if it did betray some people in power.

Yes. Remember, Nixon and Company had a chance to do what was right and didn't and wouldn't. Somebody had to do something and he did.

Anyone who argues that Felt is a 'traitor' is a Nixon apologist of the highest order.

Richard Nixon was a sleeze bag, I have no problem with Deep Throat at all, in fact we need more people like him.

A traitor to Nixon? Absolutely. A traitor to his country? Absolutely not. Nixon and his men gave up any right to "loyalty" when the crimes went down. To call him a traitor to Nixon is true, but is roughly the same as the guy at the copy center calling you a traitor because you let the cops know that HE was the one that burnt the place down.

The real question is, if his critics had to pick a side, I
wonder how many of them would truly choose to be a traitor to their country rather than their president given the guilt and corruption involved.

Did any other wieners get the free Frosty this weekend? Welcome back, customers. Actual conversation I heard from the folks in front of me in line (translated Man and Woman from foreign language I also understand but obviously the clerk did not).
