Bush vs Eisenhower:Bush
"I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."News story
from February 27, 1953 (while the Korean War
was still running hot):
AUGUSTA, Ga., Feb. 26 -- President Eisenhower, on his first journey out of Washington since he became President, flew into Augusta for a three-day stay late today with a single determination: to break 90 on the tough par 72 Augusta National Golf Club course, scene of the famed Masters' Tournament.
Is Bush implying that he's better than Ike?
