I Like Ike!
Probably if the GOP had a candidate of the caliber of Dwight D. Eisenhower they could never be beat. War hero and statesman an icon of the Cold War. Plus they cannot even come together to honor the man for his service to the country. But like the plight of most veterans…NO one cares.
In 1999 the permission for a memorial to Eisenhower was approved and so far it has been nothing but a waste of time……
Few seem to really like it, but for now it seems to be limping along to somewhere. That sentiment describes the latest chapter in the saga of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial. It was commissioned by Congress in 1999, and eventually given a site on a public square in Washington a few blocks from the Capitol. But almost two decades later, the project has yet to even break ground—or even finalize a design.
In February, the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) allowed three proposed changes to the Eisenhower Memorial design, giving the oft-stalled project permission to proceed a step toward an uncertain future. The 16-year-old memorial project is carried forward not so much by momentum as it is by resignation.
This is not surprising for the Repubs try to forget Ike instead they want to fixate on Reagan…..which I think is a mistake…..more progress was happening under Ike than any time during the rule of Ronnie.
Draw the bath water…my day is done….see everyone tomorrow….be well, be safe….chuq
