...except for being the only president of the US never to win a presidential election...
...and wasn't he the bloke after Richard Nixon and the one before Jimmy Carter? But can you remember anything he actually did?
Except, that is, for saying in a presidential debate against Carter that:
"There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford Administration…I don’t believe that the Poles consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union."
He said that only five months after strikes had broken out in many cities in Poland after a 60% rise in the price of food, made by the ever incompetent, Soviet backed, communist authorities. And the strikes of June 1976 were ruthlessly broken up by the ZOMO militia, with the backing of the (dominating) Soviets in Moscow.
