I Liked Ike, Redux

Some time ago I posted THIS about the current attempts by Democrats to equate President Obama’s foreign policies to those of President Dwight Eisenhower.  Eisenhower is remembered more for his abilities as the commander of SHAFE (Supreme Headquarters of Allied Forces in Europe) during the latter part of World War II than for his abilities as President.  Nevertheless, he should be remembered for, as the current saying goes in Hollywood, “the totality of his achievements”.

Although the Congress has sought to honor Eisenhower with a memorial in Washington since 1999, the effort has faltered due to the several ghastly architectural designs submitted and the Eisenhower family’s understandable objections to them.  To read the sad, and VERY EXPENSIVE account of the effort to date, check out THIS article by reporter Bruce Cole in the New Criterion.
