I like Ike

"This is what I mean by my constant insistence on 'moderation' in government. 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 that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid,"

I like Ike too and I agree with this statement.

But Ike was no angel either. He never met a military program he didn't like......and much of it was wasted.

He took his fair share of the pie too. And, what's his labor record look like?
