President Richard Nixon and House Minority Leader Gerald Ford talking about House Majority Leader Hale Boggs in 1971 or 72. Leader Boggs was a bit out there and Boogs would probably be a good nickname for him because he was known on both sides of the isle as doing strange things. That probably came from drinking too much. And Dick Nixon being the great judge character and sanity himself as someone who had a real deficits as they related to both character and sanity could see that Hale Boggs was also a bit out there.
