    We know he was the last Republican president to balance the budget. How did he do it? How can Reagan be elevated over Eisenhower? What does the right know about him? Do they see him as a "hero"? What would he think of today's Republicans and the Tea Party?

    He would see no difference between Republicans and Democrats. He would view the T.E.A. Party as small government advocates that he could probably agree with.

    "An unwise tax cutter, my fellow citizens, is no real friend of the taxpayer."
    - Dwight D. Eisenhower” -in his refusal to lower the top tax rate from 92%! Now its 35% and today's GOP wants it cut to 25%!

    A friend sent me this in an email.

    What do democrats know about "give'em hell" Harry Truman? He was so unpopular after the debacle of Korea that he couldn't even get the nomination in his own party to run for a full 2nd term.

    How much did the Treasury take in during the Eisenhower years, and how much are they taking in now under the lower rates?
