Donald Rumsfeld on Welfare & Poverty
Secretary of Defense (Pres. Bush Cabinet)
Nevertheless, within a few months Rumsfeld also quickly became a staunch and surprisingly tough advocate for the antipoverty agency.
In a speech to the National Press Club seven months after taking charge of the OEO, Rumsfeld even defended the concept of federally funded legal services, saying that "justice for the poor" was part of his agency's missions. By this point Rumsfeld was beginning to be viewed as a rare moderate, even progressive voice within the Nixon administration.
