Another Ike quote has re-surfaced, and it is equally wise -- and equally ignored by his latter-day Republican colleagues.
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and elimate 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. . . . Their number is negligible and they are stupid."Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, Paul Ryan and Rand Paul, and the whole lot of you obstructionists and betrayers of the American people.
Eisenhauer and Reagen would both be ashamed of you. Even Richard Nixon would think you're cruel -- and that's a pretty low level to sink to.
