    I’ve long thought that Eisenhower was one of our best Presidents.
    A common sense kind of guy.

    In Berkeley? You sure it was not meant to be ironic?

    Please tell me you are currently at some rally getting pics of crazed leftists… I am sick of seeing the sugar sweet reports on the tv, you always have better reports and show the trust of the matter.

    This car wasn’t rockin’, was it?

    The red band across the bottom of the sticker plus being in Berkley…has to be a double entendre of some kind.

    Wait what the f-…oh, THAT Ike. The last time Ike came to town, I ended up without power for over a week.

    I think the “A” was missing and it was a Swedish furnature store freebie sticker protesting the fact an IKEA was denied bailout money in the Bay Area and was forced into bankruptcy by the Evil Bush Administration.

    OBAMA!
    Free IKEA Now!

    Ike came to be viewed as a great President in retrospect. This may well turn out the case with Bush as well (‘specially if Hopeydopey follows through with all his plans).

    In elections past, I’ve called myself a Trumanista. I could go with Ike too. But it is really hard to believe that you found that bumper sticker in Berkeley. Must have been an out-of-towner visiting the kid at college.

    I disagree about Eisenhower. He forced Israel to withdraw from the Sinai after the 56 Suez War. He was really a bumbling idiot, if you remember him. He was kind of like Barack Obama (and perhaps a number of others), not really qualified to be president. He was probably overrated as a general, too. You can’t argue with the success of D-Day, though, I’ll grant you that.

    Eisenhower was one of America’s indispensable leaders. He stands among Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, Grant, FDR in the formation and preservation of this country.
