An Economy Which Works for Everyone

When Dick Nixon took office, our economy was growing like never before.

And every family was moving ahead.

Now, our factories are empty, and our economy still isn't growing at the same rate as 1968.

It's time to get an economy that works for everyone. Vote Muskie/Bayh this November.

Nixon Campaign TV Ad: Leadership


Leadership is about courage.

It's about taking challenges head on and unafraid.

Leadership is about conviction.

Leading with honor and passion is how a nation thrives.

Leadership is about opening doors and forging new alliances.

A true leader has a vision for America, taking it to new heights. That man is Richard Nixon.

This election, vote for leadership.

[Gotta replay this ad for now, not enough time Tongue]



Nixon Campaign Ad: Fellow American


I stand before you as a fellow American.

We live in extraordinary and challenging times. Make no mistake: this nation has gone through much turmoil in the last few years.

When I came into office, people were rioting in the streets. Blood was shed often.

But we as a nation could no longer tolerate that. We stood on principle and we went back to work.

This administration has worked from day one to stop the violence in the streets and truly restore peace.

Parents should let their children go to school without worrying what will happen. Communities and businesses should thrive.

It has been a long road, but as your President, I am honored to have played a role in healing our nation's wounds. Let's keep working together to make the United States better than ever.

First Presidential Debate, Results:


Final Scores:
Richard Nixon: +18
Edmund Muskie: +17
John Schmitz: +2

To say that the stakes were high before the Philadelphia debate would be to put it mildly. Across the nation and as September developed challengers Muskie and Schmitz needed a break out against a President Nixon still leading in the polls despite taking sustained hits on the corruption scandals of former Vice-President Agnew and his own divisive selection of Sam Yorty as his VP. Likewise, Nixon needed to secure his position in the polls, and he took the unexpected gamble to take part in the debate, perhaps emboldened by his decisive rout of Barry Goldwater Jr. before the New Hampshire Primary. As Muskie, Nixon and Schmitz met in Philadelphia on September 15th, millions of Americans tuned in to see the first GE presidential debate since 1960, as well as the first to include three candidates.

It was Vietnam that came up first, making for the most decisive and heated part of the debate. Fresh from a powerful opening statement by playing up the populist sentiment, Schmitz pick his first battle by being bold. To the shock of many Americans, he questioned the military service of his rivals and channeled his inner Goldwater by calling for the sudden escalation of the war, giving a response that many considered confusing and even worrying at some levels. Muskie seized the ground first, charging at the Congressman for his false claim on military service and firing up his liberal base by effectively calling for an end to the war. Alas, it was Nixon who truly shone. Touting his foreign policy record and knowledge, blasting Muskie and eviscerating Schmitz, Nixon scored a major hit and decisively won the first part of the debate.

Up next was Health Care, with Congressman Schmitz leading the charge once again. Sadly for him, his response on the area proved more confusing, taking a detour on the environment and making insistent charges of socialism against his rivals. It was left for Muskie and Nixon to battle each other to what many saw as a draw on the issue, with Muskie once again firing up his base with his calls for universal healthcare and Nixon successfully staking up the center with a moderate stance. While Nixon seemed to have the edge first, accusations of hypocrisy and negative references to Ted Kennedy did not have the desired effect with some swing voters, giving Muskie the edge on the issue.

The third issue to the fought was that of busing, and it was here that Schmitz – who many wrote off after blundering on Vietnam and Health Care- finally broke through. On one side, his apparent pro-confederate stance alienates voters up North and many be seen as too forceful (indeed, a different way of making the case might have yielded even better results), but on the other, Busing is an issue that draws visceral reactions, and whether they want to admit it or not there are many voters can’t help but agree with Schmitz, especially through a South still wary of the main tickets. Nixon had a strong performance as well by delivering some key shots on Muskie, yet his cautious stance would not deliver a win for him.

Lastly, it was left for various issues to be debated by the candidates. Schmitz put his strengths and weaknesses in evidence by speaking up on the viability of his candidacy, successfully rallying his base through a powerfully populist message while blasting Nixon and Muskie on their own connections, yet failing to ultimately look suitably presidential and seal the deal. Nixon went initially strong on his defence of his running mate and his denunciation of the Democratic Party, until he blundered on a claim that a majority of Democratic primary voters had wanted Nixon, whereas the Mayor had never surpassed 30% in opinion polls. Indeed, what saved Nixon was that both of his challengers gave him a free pass on the issue, allowing him not to take major damage. Muskie, despite having missed a chance to blast Nixon on Yorty, delivered a strong defense of his values and, above all, the continuation of Democratic policies and a legacy which are reassuring to many who considered defection not long ago – or those who defected to Nixon and were turned off by the GOP’s constant attacks on their party.

All in all, consensus showed that the debate was seen as a virtual tie between President Nixon and Senator Muskie (both of whom won their respective primary debates), with Nixon being granted a small edge over his challenger on account of his major hit on the Vietnam issue. Schmitz missed the chance to make a national breakout and damaged himself with swing voters across the Northern states, but – ironically – many of those statements (and particularly his busing stance) struck a chord with many southern voters, with his campaign expected to face some degree of a surge across the region. Broadly speaking, Muskie (who has been criticized by his party by not being aggressive enough) is expected to make gains across New England and more liberal states, whereas Nixon’s performance may help him to hold the line or make some gains in the Midwest.

Turn Nineteen: Ask Not For Whom the Bell Tolls:
September 16th to September 22nd, 1972


In the News!

Presidential Debate a Tie!
Nixon and Muskie battle it out as the President gains a small edge on Vietnam

Comeback of the South?
From safe region to battleground, is Schmitz's southern surge real?

Gallup: 1972 Presidential Election:


Richard Nixon/Sam Yorty: 49% (+1) (301 EV)
Ed Muskie/Birch Bayh: 43% (+1) (120 EV)
John Schmitz/John Rarick: 6% (+1) (0 EV)
Undecided: 2% (-3) (117 EV)

Going by the debate and looking at the national polls conducted in the aftermath of the week, pundits were fooled at first by the numbers, as the nationa swing showed the undecided voters in an unprecedented decrease as all three candidates faced surges, whereas most predicted Nixon's surge to be stronger and Schmitz to decrease. Yet the numbers hid the crucial regional swings that were taking place, with Schmitz losing heavily across the North only to make up for those voters (and even increase them) on an unexpected Southern surge, making what looked like safe states on the surface actual battlegrounds for the time being. Likewise, Nixon surge and actually sprinted ahead of Muskie in a couple of the swing states, only to see that same lead going down due to losses in the South and other swing states as well.

The Nixon campaign had a substantially improved performance this time, but it did not escape controversy. Broadly speaking, the GOP ticket had a moments of brilliance, epitomized on President Nixon's effective attacks on rivals in Pennsylvania and Michigan (which all but finished Schmitz in the second, and damaged Muskie in the first) and his eloquent "mark my words" moment with young voters. Yorty hit some good notes as well on his labor credentials, yet both the President and the Mayor have their own issues with messaging because the voters have found it hard to see them as a functioning team.

And hence comes the speech. Having led an unsuccessful press conference the previous week, Mayor Yorty delivered a speech before the public, defending himself and his record against the attacks from both enemy tickets. Famously quoting a voter named "Sue", Yorty made his case in a way that resembled Nixon's own "Checkers Speech" back in 1952, leading to no shortage of comments on the "Sue Speech" and how Yorty had become "Nixon's Nixon". While unsupported by the debate (as voters doubt Yorty truly had a mandate to a nomination) and despite Yorty's tirades against Nixon all too fresh in the minds of the voters, the speech had a positive effect on the public, halting the bleeding from the issue and giving Yorty a chance moving forward.

The Democrats, being forced to make a decision, choose to go with a vision of legacy regarding past administrations, claiming the mantle of Roosevelt and Kennedy while aggressively trying to get their base through issue like health care and the war while appealing to swing voters by relentlessly pounding on corruption. All in all, a solid effort of showcasing a united front with help from McGovern, Humphrey and Ted Kennedy and the surprise use of a John Lennon tune in advertising, what proved to be a more than clever idea. Alas, the Democratic ticket is paying a price on the issue of busing, taking even more damage across the South and in states like Michigan.

In normal circumstances, Schmitz would have probably faced an overall loss across the board due to marked issues on the debate performance. Yet his campaign has made it a point to appeal to the South as much as possible, and the combination of symbols, endorsements from Southern politicians and a strong stance on busing led Schmitz to have his breakout across some of the Wallace states (NOTE: Wallace has not endorsed yet, I've ignored his use by ClassicConservative in a post). Despite all but collapsing on states like Michgan, New Jersey, Washington, Oregon and so on, Schmitz also opened a new front of debate on the environment, noting Nixon and Muskie's records and hurting them across the West, making unexpected gains through states like the Dakotas and Montana. All in all, the Schmitz campaign is not in bad shape, but it needs to stop making mistakes like the military service lie at the debate, which costed the independent ticket support in key states.

The undecided vote has been take already by the three candidates on most states (save for some of the ignored states), which means most if not any swings this turn are likely to be from one candidate to another. Can you seize the moment?

You have exactly 72 hours, best of luck!

Actually, you do!

If you wish to, you can have full power over the Wallace endorsement (as there are arguments for all three candidates, even if the choices would affect Wallace's later career). Just let me know beforehand.

Also, I spoke to MadmanMotley some time ago, and the process will be the same for Barry Goldwater Jr., his endorsement has to be requested from him.

Schmitz for President Press Release
On New Offices and Staff Across the Nation

  The Schmitz campaign has long prided itself as the most organized campaign in the country. The Schmitz Campaign has over 400 campaign offices across the country including over forty offices in Utah, twenty five in Mississippi and over twenty in Alabama. We have offices in every single state with most states having over five offices. We also have over 5,000 hired staff including regional directors, county directors and state directors. We have also hired this week over 500 more staff members who we are sending to important battleground states and states where we want to expand our margins by talking about our populist and constitutional stances on many regional issues. We are opening mega-offices in New York, California, Michigan, Louisiana, Idaho  and North Carolina. We have hired many people from the Goldwater, Yorty, Wallace, Nixon and Thurmond Campaigns. We are opening over 20 offices in Texas, Michigan, Iowa, New Jersey and North Dakota. We are looking forward to reaching thousands of voters in all fifty states and sharing our constitutional and populist message of stronger families, a stronger military and a stronger economy.

SCHMITZ BUSING AD


Every morning, hundreds of kids come into our schools. These people are not from our schools but they live in the ghetto, they come into our schools and break up our society.


The government now wants to expand busing everywhere.


There is only one presidential candidate that stand steadfastly against busing and wants it banned in the entire country.


That man is John G. Schmitz, the only candidate who stands for our children.

I am John G. Schmitz and I approve this message.

SCHMITZ NEWSPAPER AD
LYING SAM YORTY


  Sam Yorty claims to be against, communism and believes that Nixon has done a wonderful job as President. Sam Yorty lies when he says that. In the 1930's, Sam Yorty was endorsed by the Communist Party of the United States. Sam Yorty is now anti-communist because a communist called him out while he was serving in the California Legislature. Earlier this year, Yorty said that Nixon and Nixon's Presidency was a failure, now he says its great and even is running with Nixon as his Vice President. Do we need another Washington Liar and Crybaby in power or do we need a man who went to Washington and stood on his principles of strong families, a strong dollar, winning the Vietnam War, strong unions and manufacturing and law and order. We Need a Man, who stands on principles and doesn't flip flop, We Need John G. Schmitz for President.

SCHMITZ PRESS CONFERENCE IN DOTHAN, ALABAMA

  Wow, this is one of largest crowds yet, Alabama!!! We have over 10,000 people here, these people are from everywhere whether it's Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi or somewhere else. I'm gonna speak to you guys in a few minutes but, I promised the media guys that, I would answer their questions.

REPORTER #1: Congressman Schmitz, last week, President Nixon said while attacking you "who really believes in the Constitution." What do you have to say to him?

SCHMITZ Well, I find this really scary that Chairman Mao Lovin' Nixon is questioning who stands with our Constitution. Nixon is the guy, who is against the gold standard which is Legal Tender under the constitution. He also is just lying all day and night to us saying that, I don't stand for the Constitution. I am the guy backed by many constitutional scholars including Cleon Skousen and others, I have personally fought for the Constitution and will continue to. (cheers)

Congressman Schmitz later answered two more questions.

I am also going to announce some really big news here tonight. Who here is against busing, (the crowd cheers and raises their hands) most normal sane people think that forced busing and integration is just crazy. It is but all of these career politicians aren't doing anything for us in regards to busing. So, I have decided to take action into my own hands. Tomorrow morning, before I head out to the Great States of Kentucky and West Virginia, I am quickly going to stop by Capitol Hill and introduce a constitutional admendment to end busing now and forever. (crowd cheers for two minutes) We need to end forced busing today, every morning we have kids coming into and leaving our neighborhood. I think that education belongs to the states not the politicians in Washington. Nixon said in '68 that he stood with the Silent Majority, the Silent Majority now a days are fed up with what the politicians have done to our country, values, foreign policy and our children and We the People want change. I am personally going to promise this, under a Schmitz Presidency, busing and forced race mixing is gone forever

President Nixon campaigns in Manchester, New Hampshire.

"The motto of New Hampshire is the motto of our entire nation: live free or die. We must strive to live free, in every way. Not only as free citizens in a democratic society-we must live free of the fear of violence in our streets. We must live free of the fears of nuclear destruction. Only once we shirk the chains of doubt and fear, then we will truly be free to pursue our destiny as a nation. So my friends, do not vote for fear in November. My friends, vote for freedom from fear, the most precious of all!"

“My opponent Senator Muskie has had a long career in the Senate, where he has continuously put either the interest of the radicals or the interests of his own ambition above that of the country. He was against the war, until the Democratic Convention in 1968, when he became for it again for a while, for example. Leadership is important. Consistency is critical. Do we want a President who follows the polls and tries to be all things to all men?  Or do we want a President who follows the clear cut vision of America that is as unwavering as his passion for this country and its future?

Questioner: My name is Jeanne Spitzer; I am 48 years old and the mother of five sons, aged 17 to 5. My children attend the public schools here in Janesville, and I am very much satisfied with the education that they are receiving. I am, however, worried about the effects of busing and the possibility of it being introduced here. I want my sons to attend the local schools with the local children. I don’t think it is fair to bring in outsiders to our community or send my son to a community where he will be the outsider. Will you fight for our rights too?

Nixon: Thank you very much for that question, Mrs. Spitzer. I am totally against busing, but I have for the last four years allowed the courts to handle the matter. It is clear to me as I travel this great country during my last campaign that the public is dissatisfied and will need more resolute action. That is why I will work with Congress to ensure that busing is ended as a practice as soon as possible. The goal of integration must never waver, of course, but the solution of busing has only created more problems than it was intended to solve. So yes, we will in my second term end busing as a practice once and for all.

Questioner: Mr. President, I’m Gordon Greene, I’m 24 years old, and I am a resident of Milwaukee. I’m also, as you can see, a black American. You made the urban unrest, the blight, the crime, the chaos of our cities a major theme in your last presidential campaign. And I’m willing to admit that I have seen positive changes, by and large, in our cities. But still, much has to be done. What further actions can be taken to improve daily life for black Americans in our major cities?

Nixon: Thank you, young man, for that excellent question. Too many times, we hear the simple answers. We hear about more government from both the left and the right. Take, for example, those who feel that I have not been tough enough on criminals. I am proud of my administrations record on combating crime, but we must do so in a manner that is effective. We can’t just hire more police officers, for example, and send them into the cities and hope that things will improve. When you have people so impoverished, so neglected, and so tired, how can you expect them to care? How can you expect them to look forward when they have no hope? This is why we need to look into a policy of community policing, where criminals are dealt with not by strangers from the suburbs, but by their neighbors. This policy will be explored further in my second term. We also, of course, have the radicals and the leftists and the liberals who believe that the solution to poverty is a hand out. What these citizens need is not a handout; they need a hand up. And we will continue to give them that hand up by embracing free enterprise zones that give entrepreneurs the opportunity to prosper and create real, tangible, lasting jobs. We can, together, solve these problems by unleashing our countries “secret sauce”: the American dream.
