Goodbye forever, Spiro. I nominate my next new evil sidekick to be Gerald Ford!
YES! My evil plans for the country can begin now!
We confirm Ford's nomination. He is now the Vice President.
Noooooo! My evil plot to destroy the Democrats has been ruined!
Don't worry, Nixon! I'll be sure to help you out during my Presidency!
Vice President Spiro Agnew to President Nixon resigns due to income tax evasion! Nixon nominates Ford to be his new Vice President.
I am pardoning my former partner in crime, Richard Nixon, so that he may get off scot free for all the crimes he committed!
Because of the 25th amendment, Ford's nomination is confirmed by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. Ford is appointed VP.
My new policies will only send the country on a downward spiral to defeat! They may be named "WIN" but the country will most certainly lose!
Nixon resigns due to the Watergate scandal, making Ford the first ever appointed, not elected, President.
NOOO! I have been defeated!
I am here to rescue the country from Ford's horrible reign!
President Ford pardons Nixon, pardoning any crimes he might have committed against the United States.
Ford faces rising inflation, unemployment, and oil prices and implements “Whip inflation Now!” (WIN), which enacts energy-saving measures, and “Tight Money” Policy, which cut government spending. Both were failures and led to a horrible economic recession.
Gerald Ford runs for reelection, but is defeated by democrat Jimmy Carter in 1976!
