186. Ironically enough, a Republican president had some wise words on this subject (among others)
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security...you would not hear of that party again in our political history."

- President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 11/8/54

Ike was referring to extremist elements within his own party at the time. But what was considered extremely right wing in 1954, would be "liberal" compared to the DLC.

And what better way to complete their goal of destroying the Democratic party from within, than to make Eisenhower's prophecy come true?
