LGM Film Club, Part 168: Pete DuPont


It seems that Pete DuPont was in fact still alive until yesterday. Who knew!

Anyway, here’s a 1988 DuPont campaign ad pushing an early version of what George W. Bush would try–privatizing Social Security by “allowing” young workers to invest their own SSN funds. I know, I too am amazed that the scion of one of the nation’s most elite families would be a bad faith actor to destroy America’s social safety net!

Hard to believe that this charisma didn’t take America by storm.
