The Man Who is President

Collins, Frederick W.
May 1956
New Republic;5/28/56, Vol. 134 Issue 22, p19
This article focuses on the book "Eisenhower the President," by Merlo J. Pusey. Here is the paradox of the Eisenhower political position. It is possible to quarrel with just about everything that Mr. Pusey says in the main body of this book, which lies on its belly before the idol. Mr. Pusey's book is one of the worst things that has happened in American political literature. The body of the work is full of such sustained and detailed adulation that it would be impossible, in space short of what Mr. Pusey has used, to refute it all.
