“I like my movies made in Hollywood.” — Richard Nixon

"Oh, I know, we hear a lot of talk about bad movies being shown in various places, and so forth, but in all the countries that my wife and I have visited, about 80, I can assure you that Hollywood, in most of them, has been there before. We go along streets in the cities of Africa and Asia and Latin America, everyplace, and on that marquee you will see the Hollywood names that we are so familiar with. It makes us feel at home as we see those names."[1]

“We must wage what I have called total war against public enemy number one in the United States: the problem of dangerous drugs.”--Nixon on the war on drugs on American television

"And so tonight—to you, the great silent majority of my fellow Americans—I ask for your support."

Richard Nixon, November 3, 1969

"I can't believe Nixon won. I don't know anyone who voted for him" is a spurious quote attributed to Pauline Kael, Katharine Graham, Susan Sontag, and Joan Didion, and a variant is sometimes said to have instead been uttered after Ronald Reagan's landslide reelection in 1984. This misquote became an urban legend, and has been cited by conservatives (such as Bernard Goldberg, in his 2001 book Bias) as an example of insularity among the liberal elite.
