Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Throwback Thursdays- Presidential Pursuits

Throwback Thursdays- Presidential Pursuits

Throwback Thursdays- Gerald Ford

I traveled north last fall to visit another Presidential Museum or Homeplace. This is one of the items on our bucket list and we are about 2/3's of the way through the list of Presidents. 

Gerald Ford Presidentail Museum

In Grand Rapids, MI the Gerald Ford Museum is located. This is also where the President and Mrs. Ford are buried. Over in Ann Arbor is the Presidential Library where thousand of pages of documents are stored and research takes place. 

 

I learned how much he loved the country. He did not intend to be President and got the Presidency by default when Richard Nixon resigned in 1974. Gerald Ford was the Vice-President at the time. Those were tumultuous times. 

 

President Ford had to make some tough decisions, one of those was pardoning Richard Nixon and as a result, he lost the next election. People were unforgiving of the pardon and felt like it was playing party favorites. He said he thought the country would not weather the criminal trial and needed to put the Watergate Scandal behind and start healing. 

 

He was a statesman, a family man, a good husband and a true patriot. He also was a pretty good football player and a handsome young man. Can you tell what team he played for based on the colors of the uniform?

I'd love to visit there.  It was 1976 he was not re-elected.  78 was not a presidential election year.  Carter was elected in 76 and Reagan in 80. 

And that's a really cool bucket list agenda.  Have you been to white plains in GA.
