This is my first crack at a biotimeline. I hope to write a book like this some day. Please tell me if you have any comments, suggestions, or criticisms.

Governor Mike Pulaski (R-FL) meets with his two advisors and Confidants Jim Kent and Frank Carol, May of 2011

Jim: Mike, I've done some polls, and it looks like you could walk away with the nomination.

Mike: Jimbo, that's what they said about Ted Kennedy before Gary Hart beat him back in '84. I'm not going to jump into the race simply because of one poll...

Frank: But, Mike, conservatives are hoping for someone other than Senator Romney. They all remember how his father was of the Rockefeller wing when he took over from Nixon. Romney's...

Mike: It's not fair to criticize a man based on his father. He's a nice guy, has a wonderful family. Besides, even if I did want to run for president, how could I stab Mitt in the back after he endorsed me for he governorship back in '06?

Jim: It won't be stabbing him in the back. It's simply politics.

Frank: There's something else you should know.

Mike: What?

Frank: We have received a call from Romney's people. They say he's going to announce his candidacy next month. They want you on board.

Mike: They have every right to. The thing is...

Jim: Whether it is best for you.

Mike: No, but...

Jim: But what?

Mike: I don't know. Something tells me I shouldn't endorse Mitt...yet.

Jim: See? You DO want to run for president.

Mike: No...

Jim: Mike, I have known you for twenty years. No one other than God has cared about your future than I do...

Mike: I wouldn't ...

Jim: No, listen to me. I've helped you through the State House, and the Governor's mansion. Believe me, I'm not going to give up on you now.

Mike: But why the presidency? Jeb Bush will retiring from the Senate soon. Why couldn't I just...

Jim: How many times do I have to tell you: There's no future for you in the Senate. Look, you're pushing 65. If you get in the Senate, you'll have the spend the rest of your career there, trying to get in a position of influence.

Frank: He's right.

Jim: Mike, you seem to have a pipeline to God...

Mike: Not one you couldn't have...

Jim: Yeah, yeah. Anyway, do you think He might want you in the White House? That's obviously the next step if he's really looking out for you. Wouldn't He want you to be in the place of most influence. You've said yourself you believe that God has called you into politics, though you might be to nice for this business. Why wouldn't He want you to help yourself if that means you help others. Isn't that what your Book says?

Mike: No, the Bible does not say "God helps those who help themselves"...

Jim: Well, if He won't help you, I will. I'm telling you, why don't you at least consider...

Mike: I'll pray about it.

Jim: I might pray to... that God will give you some sense.

Mike: I'd appreciate it.

Jim: Uh, huh.

Mike: But what about Senator Cain, Governor King?

Frank: No one will take Cain seriously. And King's all bark and no bite. And with Mike Huckabee's death in last month's plane crash, no one else can credibly carry the conservative torch.

Jim: And you have the added benefit of being governor of Florida. You could make the case that you could win as a conservative.

Mike: Perhaps...

Jim: Anyway, I'll call you in the morning. Maybe God would have sent you a telegram by then.

Mike: Well, thanks Jim, Frank. I'll see you around.

Jim: Evening, Mike.

Frank: Evening, Governor.

First, we need some background information. Throughout this timeline, I'll switch from History, to Mike's biography, to the "Present" starting with the introductory passage.

1968



The POD (point of divergence) is when George Romney gives his infamous "Brainwash" interview. In this timeline, he doesn't make the remark, and becomes a considerable challenger to Richard Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller.  Romney, however, focuses most of his attacks on Rockefeller instead of Nixon, a move, which some historians believe, to be an attempt to land a place on the Nixon ticket.

At the convention, the delegates are split between Richard Nixon, George Romney, Nelson Rockefeller, and a favorite son of California by the name of Ronald Reagan. Many backroom deals were cut between Nixon's, Romney's, and Thurmond's people, whose approval was needed for Nixon's VP pick.

After Thurmond gave his approval of Romney, the convention nominated the Michigan governor for Vice President, much to the dislike of conservatives. William F. Buckley, who had been let into Nixon's inner circle, concluded in retrospect "Romney wasn't the best, but he wasn't Rockefeller."

As conservatives reluctantly supported Nixon as he attempted to reach out to this growing movement. Nixon ran on a platform of "Peace with Honor" in Vietnam, and appealed to the "Silent Majority" of those who had not lost their cool during either the Civil Rights movement nor the Anti-War movement.

The Democrats nominated Vice President Hubert Humphrey, and Maine Senator Edmund Muskie, a descendant of Polish immigrants. The convention in Chicago, however, was disrupted by anti-war protesters. The image of the delegates fleeing the convention hall due to the smoke bombs remained embedded in the voters' minds as the Democrats attempted to put their best face on an increasingly unpopular administration.

Although the results were close, especially with Governor of Alabama George McGovern running as an independent, Nixon was able to carry the day, including Romney's home state of Michigan.

Upon his becoming President, Nixon knew he would have to expand beyond the Northeast to solidify his power base. Not only did he need the South, but he also needed the Unions. His Vice President, a former car executive, had an unusually sound relationship with the UAW. Romney could prove to be a valuable ally in creating Nixon's new coalition.

President Richard Nixon with then Vice President George Romney

Still, those in the Nixon administration found Romney to be difficult to handle, especially since he had a tendency to shoot from the hip, and sometimes at his foot. Romney, a known dove, was assigned to the mundane domestic tasks that Nixon abhorred as he sought to craft his vision for world peace and detente. Romney would often visit factories, construction projects, and schools. Primarily, Romney acted as Nixon's ambassador to the Unions, who proved to be the foot shoulders against the anti-war hippies.

But Romney was often kept out of the loop. Charles Colson, in his autobiography Born Again, described it this way:

Although [Romney] was closer to the President ideologically, no two men could be further apart. They both believed in Civil Rights, and peace in Vietnam, but they differed in their approach. Romney believed in perhaps the naive notion of an immediate withdrawal, whereas the President wanted to secure peace with China first as part of his dream of world peace...[Romney and Nixon] rarely met. I suspect that the President felt threatened by Romney's potential.

After Nixon's trek to China, the bombing of Vietcong targets, and the summit in Paris, Nixon was riding high. He easily won reelection against George McGovern.

1972



Then came Watergate...

George Marcin Pulaski (1917-1999)

Born in Warsaw during the middle of World War I, Jerzy Pulaski seemed to be destined to live through trouble. Within two years of his birth, the 200 year dream of a revived Polish state came true as Poland declared her independence in 1918, and received official recognition at the Conference at Versailles in 1919.

However, the boundaries between some of the newly formed states made by the Treaty of Versailles, including Poland's, were vague and in dispute. War soon broke out between Soviet Russia and Poland. Although Poland make key advancements initially, the Soviets succeeded in a counter-offensive that lead all the way to Warsaw. Jerzy's father, Jozef, fought as a volunteer to defend the city. Although the Soviets were ultimately repelled, Jozef died in the fighting. George would grow up never knowing his true father.

His mother, Maria, married again by a general in the Polish military, and a key player in  the 1926 coup which established Jozef Pilsudski as Poland's de facto dictator. Up until Pilsudski's death in 1935, George ran around with children of Warsaw's ruling class.  But still, George had a great affinity for history and politics.

 His mother financed his education at the University of Warsaw. During his education there, anti-semitist organizations plagued the universities. Considering himself a socialist after the manner of Pilsudski, Jerzy was appalled at the trend of anti-semitism sweeping across the academic institutions of Europe. he considered such attitudes to be "un-Polish." He was even involved in a brawl with one of the anti-semitic leaders.

Jerzy also developed an interest in learning English. His mother also financed his tuition at the University of Oxford in 1939. Within weeks of his admission at Oxford, on September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Russia, after signing a non-aggression pact with Germany, joined in its own invasion of Poland 16 days later. Jerzy was devastated. He tried desperately to contact his mother, but to no avail. She was believed to have died after her home was destroyed in a blitzkrieg air-strike.

Because of Jerzy's connections, he became actively involved in Poland's government-in-exile, headquartered in London. He became part of a delegation to the British, and later American governments. He began to associate with Americans socially, and began to enjoy their company. He met an American WAC officer from Polish Downtown Chicago, Tanya Borski. The two fell in love, and married in 1945.

Jerzy had hoped to take his new bride back to Poland, but the l'liberation" of Warsaw by the Soviets crushed his spirit. He decided to move to Chicago, and assimilate into the Polish community there.


Ed. If anyone of Polish descent, or any knowledge of Polish history, forgive me for butchering Polish history. My knowledge is scanty at best, and most of this was on-the-fly research. Thanks for your understanding.

Romney Rises

On June 17, 1972 Watergate security guard Frank Wills discovered a break in pf the DNC offices at the Watergate complex. Five of the alleged perpatrators were arrested, as well as E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy. They were convicted in January of 1973.

Questions immediately arose over the President's involvement, especially after one of the "Watergate Seven" alleged that he was pressured into committing perjury on the witness stand. Eventually, the questions and implications became so great, that President Nixon was forced to resign.

Nixon officially left office on August 9, 1974. Vice President George Romney officially succeeded him as President.

George Romney taking the Oath of Office, August 9, 1974

George Romney immediately gave an address to the nation:

My fellow Americans,

I am pleased to say that our national nightmare is over. Now is a time for healing, but it is also a time to face facts. People on both sides of the aisle have cultivated this culture of corruption. We have tried hard to work for the benefit of the powerful over the weak...Now is a time where we need to change these practices. For starters, I will not accept any pay as your president. Second, I will begin anew with a fresh cabinet, with Republicans and Democrats. Finally, I will select a Democrat for my Vice President...


This announcement of a bipartisan administration sent shock waves through out the political world. Speculation began over the future Vice President.

 Three days later, Romney announced that Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan would act as Vice President. The Senate confirmed the President's appointment.

President Romney
Romney fired the entire cabinet, including then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, whom he referred to as a "Meglomaniacal Metternich." He appointed Republicans and Democrats, as well as associates from his days in the private sector. The Romney Administration soon reflected the President's moderate views, although, in a surprise appointment, the Romney nominated Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson of Washington, a hawkish Democrat, to the position of Secretary of Defence.

Reaction from the conservative community was mixed, but tended to be negative. In an unauthored editorial by National Review, the magazine expressed its concerns over whether the Romney Administration would take a leftward path, based on the administration's appointments.

The President continued the withdrawal of troops from Vietnam set forth by his predecessor. Then North Vietnam invaded the South in violation of the treaty signed years earlier. Romney ordered that American Embassy in Saigon be evacuated. Images of desperate Vietnamese clinging to the American helicopters leaving the Embassy would represent an low point in American prestige.

Yet Romney's approval ratings soared, peaking at 56% approval in mid-1975.  Apparently, Romney had been able to escape any negative stigma attached to Nixon. Democrats despaired over taking the White House in 1976.

Only one man was considered strong enough to challenge the President: Edmund Muskie of Maine.

To be continued...

Within two years of his birth, the 200 year dream of a revived Polish state came true as Poland declared her independence from Russia in 1918, and received official recognition at the Conference at Versailles in 1919.

I don't think a Polish boy was originally names "George". Jerzy, perhaps (which is Polish equivalent)?

Also, to say Poland declared independence from Russia is misguiding, considering that there were two other power controlling Polish territory: Germany and Austro-Hungary.

However, the boundaries between some of the newly formed states made by the Treaty of Versailles, including Poland's, were vague and in dispute. War soon broke out between the Soviet Union and Poland. Although Poland make key advancements initially, the Soviets succeeded in a counter-offensive that lead all the way to Warsaw. George's father, Jozef, fought as a volunteer to defend the city. Although the Soviets were ultimately repelled, Jozef died in the fighting. George would grow up never knowing his true father.

There was Soviet Russia, not Soviet Union at the time.

Thanks, Kawlejt. I have a great admiration for the Polish people, especially since I spent two weeks with five Poles as part of a trip. This timeliness is, in part, dedicated to them.

George Pulaski

 Once Jerzy immigrated to Chicago, he changed his name to George, the English equivalent of his birth name. His mastery of English had improved greatly during his time in Britain, although he still woke with a noticeable accent.

Despite his Polish ancestry, George determined to speak primarily English, and rarely spoke Polish again. He was determined to assimilate onto his new American homeland.

George had lived a life of privilege during his life in Poland and Europe. He had expected to receive some inheritance from his deceased mother.  He had learned that he would have to return to Poland in order to receive his share of his mother's estate. Knowing how his participation in the Polish government-in-exile, which had now begun opposing the Communist government, he knew he would not be safe.

The new American had to work. The economic slowdown following World War II made it difficult for George to find a job. He finally found work at a Polish grocer in Polish Downtown Chicago. He felt the work beneath him, but realized he had to support his wife, who was now pregnant with their first child.

Tanya gave birth to Michael Gabriel Pulaski on November 17, 1946. George felt the full weight of being a father fall in his shoulders; he suddenly felt a need to work his hardest to provide his son a future. In this land of opportunity, George could provide a way for his son to succeed in life. Who knows? Maybe little Michael might become President of the United States. Michael vowed to do anything, even if it meant to stoop to hard laborious, to make sure his son could have the opportunities that the child would not have in Communist Poland.

Six months after Michael's birth, George received word from an American friend from the depths of World War II. The man promised George an executive job at a shipping company in Tampa, Florida. George immediately began makig arrangements to make the trip to Florida by selling most of his possessions in Chicago. With just enough cash to buy train tickets and maybe a car, George, Tanya, and Michael took the train to Tampa in anticipation of a well-paying job.

The job never came.

Apparently, someone else snatched the job before George. Also George found out that his friend was in no position to offer him a job. He found himself with no job, no food, no home: all seemed hopeless. Distraught, George felt the need to return to the faith of his homeland: Catholicism. He begged, pleaded, and simpered before God, begging forgiveness, as well as various promises to return to the Faith.

His prayers seemed to be answered in the form of a priest of Cuban descent who was visiting Tampa from his Parish in Bartow. The priest, Father Rodriguez, allowed the Pulaskis to stay at his parsonage until George could find a job.

And so began the Pulaskis' residence in Florida.

At the Goldwaters' Home in Arizona

Nancy Reagan's family had enjoyed close ties with the Goldwater family for years. Nancy's mother was close to the Goldwaters. Ronald Reagan, before he ran for the governorship of California in 1966, endorsed Barry Goldwater for the Presidency in 1964.

The year is 1975, and although President Romney was initially successful in distancing himself from his predecessors, other problems plagued his administration.

One, Romney had upset conservatives by proposing healthcare reform that involved a federal mandate. The proposal met tremendous criticism from those on the Left, who wanted a "public option", and those on the right, who saw it as a threat to federalism. "Romneycare," as it came to be known, stalled in the Senate thanks to the work of Senator Ted Kennedy, who had his own plan for healthcare reform. Romney's failure cost him great political capital.

Second, although he reputed Kissinger's plan of "detente," he did seek to reach out to he Soviets. He pushed for a bold reduction of nuclear armaments, something conservatives were not ready to do. Romney even faced a rebellion from his Vice President and Secretary of Defense.

Finally, the appointment of moderate to liberal justices to the various federal bureaucracies and courts, including one John Paul Stevens, led to great dissatisfaction within the GOP base.

These events led the former governor of California to pull his friend Barry Goldwater aside at one meeting

Continuation of Previous Post

 Reagan: Now that we're by ourselves, I'd like to ask you something.

Goldwater: What is it Ron?

Reagan: I've talked it over with Nancy, and my mind is made up: I'm going to challenge Romney in the primaries.

Goldwater: You can't be serious.

Reagan: Would I lie to you? Of course I'm dead serious. As serious as I could be about anything.

Goldwater: But, why?

Reagan: Look, Barry. George is a great guy, but he is blurring the lines between ourselves and the Democrats. He seems to have more in common with them anyway.

Goldwater: Normally, I would agree with you. I'm no fan of him myself. But should you challenge him, with the all too likely prospect of you losing anyway, that would boost the confidence of the Democrats, and provide them a narrative of a squabbling GOP.

Reagan: I think we are already in trouble. I've been trying to convince some friends of mine to avoid a third-party solution, which would definitely hand the election to Muskie, or whoever. Conservatives don't want another "lesser of two evils" election like they have had the past two cycles.

Goldwater: Still, you have no chance of winning...

Reagan: I think I do. Besides, maybe we could force Moynihan off the ticket if I garner enough support at Kansas City next year.

Goldwater: Why are you telling me?

Reagan:  I would like your endorsement.

Goldwater: Well...

Reagan: I'm no asking you to return the favor, I'm asking you as a friend as a believer in our cause.

Goldwater: I can't make any promises...

Reagan: Just think about it. That's all I ask.

Goldwater: I will. By the way, who was the young guy you were telling me about, Mike, Mike...

Reagan: Mike Pulaski. Yeah, he is regular genius. His knowledge of history, and his way with words are unparalled. Plus, Mike's a first-generation American, which shows itself in his deep, abiding love for his country. That's why I want to hire him as a speech writer when I begin the campaign. His father actively campaigned for you in Florida.

Goldwater: Will I get to meet this prodigy?

Reagan: You might. He will be attending CPAC next year.

Goldwater: I look forward to it.

Reagan: Want to rejoin the ladies?

Goldwater: Let's.

Preview: Muskie will be the Democratic nominee in '76. Expect to see a young Karl Rove and Mitt Romney.

Note: I know this sounds perilously close to a Cathcon timeline. No plagiarism intended.

Pulaski Family

George Pulaski finally secured a lower level white collar job at a nearby salt mine in Polk County. His impressive mastery of English caused his employers to look past his accent. He eventually earned enough money to purchase a house.

Although George struggled for acceptance in Bartow, he continued to avoid drawing too much attention to himself. That is, until Joe McCarthy.

George followed the news avidly, subscribing to the Tampa Tribune and the Polk County Democrat.  He eventually purchased a television set in 1951, and quickly became engrossed in the McCarthy hearings of the early 1950's. Because of his own experiences with the loss of his native land to Communism, he dedicated himself to prevent the "Reds" from taking over America. He promptly joined the local Republican Party, the party of Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy, and engrossed audiences about his grief over the fall of Poland to Communism, his gratitude for America for providing a home, and his avowed animosity against Communism.

Soon, Mr. Pulaski became requested at all sorts of events and clubs. He earned extra money at these speaking engagements, and gained respect and admiration throughout central Florida. Then, he was approached by several Republicans to run for the State House.

Polk County, a "Yellow Dog" Democrat region, did not elect Pulaski when he ran in 1954. Still, he had earned a place in the Florida Republican Part leadership when he was made Chairman of his congressional district's party.

It was in this environment little "Mike" received his political. education.

I like! I've often wanted to do a President Romney scenario, I'd like to see how the 1970's would take place with him at the helm. Quite interesting, I'd say. Civil Rights, maybe deficit reduction though no big aiming at social programs, maybe earlier welfare reform. Anyway those are my plans for a timeline someday. Poor George seems to be in more than he can handle. Who's his Secretary of State? I can see Mark Hatfield, Oregon Senator, Nuclear Freeze Proponent, and anti-war Republican getting the job.

Also, a minor critique, Moynihan was only elected to the Senate in 1974, taking office in 1975.

I haven't focused much on the cabinet. Hatfield is now Secretary of State.

Maybe Moynihan could be butterflies into the Senate. I'll work on that.

I'll tell ya, a cabinet with hippie Republican Mark Hatfield heading State and hawk Democrat Scoop Jackson head Defense is bound for quite a few good cabinet brawls.

I wont focus too much on Romney. I gotta keep the timeline going.

Sorry, fed you an inaccuracy. It's 1976 that Moynihan was elected to the Senate.
