1968 – a year of turmoil and change that would affect the world as we know it, even to this day. Of course, Americans remember this year as where Nixon ran for president and made sub par solutions to the Vietnam War, amongst other things.

On the first of February 1968, Richard Nixon announced his candidacy for president as the representative of the Republican party. In the same month, he had already figured out his winning campaign strategy – he’d promise to end the Vietnam War. However, whenever he was asked how he would end the war, he would answer vaguely, which proved really didn’t know how to end it, and was only saying it to appeal to a wider, much more conservative audience.

The comic represents my initial impression of Nixon when I first learned of how poor his argument was.
