Wrong. He’s not the best Republican president we’ve had, but he is the best Republican president we had to vote for in 2012.
Unlike Mr. Obama, Dwight D. Eisenhower had no problem calling out the military-industrial complex. Ike also wasn’t troubled by having high income tax rates on the wealthy and the corporations. And Eisenhower even wrote to his brother Edgar on Nov. 8, 1954, stating:
“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”
What’s more, history shows that Eisenhower never put Social Security on the chopping block, as Mr. Obama has done twice already, with a looming third “fiscal cliff” opportunity to do so again before year’s end – or sometime within the next four years. (JdeCP)
