From Allen J. Matusow, Nixon’s Economy: Booms, Busts, Dollars & Votes: 

The zigs and zags of policy gave the appearance of ideological confusion. Politics provided the coherence, and because politics was the point, Nixon cared more about the symbolism of his program–how it played in Peoria . . . 

Have truer words ever been written about Richard Nixon and his presidency? And they’re just as true of Nixon’s foreign policy.
