14. Now let's just parse this quotation from an upstanding Republican "lawmaker".
"Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) a member of House Republican leadership compared Bushs political problems to then President Trumans in 1952. President Eisenhower subsequently won the presidency and Republicans captured the House."

Were probably slightly behind where Truman was with his Democratic Party in 1951 and 1952, McCotter said. History has vindicated Trumanfortunately I dont see a Democratic Eisenhower out there.

"fortunately I dont see a Democratic Eisenhower out there.

What does he mean by this? It is either that Eisenhower was a terrible President and it is "fortunate" that there isn't another like him to ruin the country - or - Eisenhower was a very good President, but if it is a Democrat, this Republican "patriot" had rather have a lesser person in charge and to hell with the country.

Man these Republicans just cannot help but show their true colors. They actually hope that the country does worse under a Democratic President - I don't think any Democrat wants the country to do worse under a Republican President, they just (from experience) assume that it will do worse. And that is a big difference...
