Maybe Ike wasn't such a jerk after all

David Sirota has a blog post including a quotation by Eisenhower on November 8, 1954 -- 2 years to the day before I was born. Sirota says Ike is "predict[ing] the demise of the GOP over Social Security."

At the time Ike must have seemed pretty dull- but he was someone who had real credibility- his military credentials were solid- Ironically, Bush supporters must know, in thier hearts, the Bush's service record is a joke- that's why they lash out when attention is brought to bare.

Imagine calling Ike a chickenhawk?

He would laugh you off like piece of dust or just look puzzled - but now we are ruled by people who would NEVER think of puttinn themselves in any danger and never doubt putting others in harms way.

I posted that Sirota quote a few days ago on my post "Ike: Anti-Bush Republican" - I have some links on that post you might find interesting =also. read the comments and you can see the defensiveness about what I state.
