He would have been better off than with All of these during a televised debate in the 1970 presidential Campaign Nixon said in reference to the Public searing of former president Harry s Truman i am very proud that president Eisenhower restored dignity and decency and frankly Good language to the conduct of the president of the United states.

But non White House officials who have listened to some of the tape recordings made available to investigators thus far have concluded that As one source said there was some private comments. The Only question the source added is Over the precise language he the sources also said that the 19 unedited tapes thus far turned Over by the White House to the watergate special prosecutor s office contained few derogatory ethnic comments although the times was told that one White House deletion contained a derogatory comment by Nixon about jews in government and the Media. Highly reliable sources have told the times that in an Oval office meeting with Dean on feb. 28, 1973, the president warned about a network of jews in the government and press who kept one another informed.

In his statement saturday Buzhardt said the tapes of recorded conversations do not contain racial slurs by the president. I have listened to them a number of times and i know this to be the fact. The allegation in the new York times that the president used the reference jew boys is just not True. It is a fabrication.
