What was Gerald Ford's greatest failure?

The only failure of Ford was his pardon of Richard Nixon. I was honored to be his campaign chairman while a student at the University of Oklahoma in 1976.

I met both the President and his son, Jack. What a great experience! He was crucified unfairly for pardoning Nixon back then. We were in a recession, and the country had major challenges and over 75% of his time was spent talking to lawyers on both sides of the Watergate scandal. He knew that the country couldn't afford to have Nixon in a court of law and having it drag out for many more months along with appeals and so forth. Ford did the right thing by putting a quick end to this. He knew that politcally, he had probably lost the election in 1976, but he knew he did what was best for the country. He put country first over politcs! Nixon had phlebitis as it turned out and was very sick and was close to dying in the fall of 1974. Being forced to resigned was a huge humiliation for Nixon and suffered for it. I don't think the majority of the American people would have wanted to see him in prison.

Why did Gerald Ford pardon Richard Nixon?

President Ford pardoned Richard Nixon to try and put Watergate in the past and concentrate on the important problems the USA had in 1974, such as the Energy Crisis, and unemployment, and the fact that the Communists were threatening to overrun South Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos

Watergate was a "third rate burglary and a first rate cover up". It cost Richard Nixon his Presidency. He resigned after being reelected in 1972 with a massive landslide. Ford knew that enemies of Nixon would not be content until they had brought him to trial . He knew the attempts to get indictments and a possible trial would distract the government from more important matters and would attract publicity in foreign countries that would damage the prestige of the United States.

Enough was enough. Time to move on and deal with more important problems.
