Bush vs Eisenhower:

Bush on appearances:
"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?


Is Bush implying that he's better than Ike?


For him to imply any such thing, he would need to know that a) Eisenhower played golf, b) Eisenhower was President during the Korean War, and c) Eisenhower played golf during his tenure.

I'll bet he is fuzzy on at least two of these...
