"Nixon was leaving.
He was driven out a gate just 20 yards or so to my right.
The cops formed a line to hold back the crowd.
I had a good view as he went past me, past me again, the 6th time and still alive..."
Arthur Bremer had nothing against the man he tried to kill, He simply had a desperate desire to be "somebody."
And to make sure his name went in the history books, he wrote down his inmost thoughts and observations as he prepared for the crime.
This chilling diary takes you through six unsuccessful attempts on President Nixon's life to within a few days of Bremer shooting of Alabama Governor George Wallace. It chronicles the desperation of an utterly "ordinary" American - young, unemployed, frustrated in love, nagged by feelings of inadequacy and insignificance. It is a pathetic, contemporary story - and an ominous document that will make you tremble for the safety of our nation's leaders.
