Washington Wire

T. R. B.
April 1954
New Republic;4/12/54, Vol. 130 Issue 15, p2
One has never seen anything quite like the present relationship of Democrats to U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower. Democrats have been reasonably responsible in opposition. There are no illusions about Washington politics which won't push the thing too far. But one can compare the Republican Party, GOP's poisonous hatred of the 32nd U.S. President Frankelin Delano Roosevelt and the 33rd U.S. President Henry S. Truman. It can be recalled that the Congressional Quarterly's finding that of 74 roll-call tests of Eisenhower's program won in the first session, Democrats gave him the margin of victory 58 times.
