    It's been brought up before.

    I said then and I said now --

    I have zero problem with any of this so long as we return to the scope of government which existed when he was President. Which means everything the government does now, which it didn't do in 1960, gets chucked.

    If you balk at that, then putting this up is bull****.

    But you see, it's the 1960s any more.

    Back then partisanship didn't matter as much as it did today. Kennedy, a Democrat, lowered taxes IIRC. It wasn't about following a strict party platform, it was each president doing what he thought was best for the time.

    It's not the '50s anymore. Thus, comparing what anyone does now to what Eisenhower did THEN is specious at best.

    Depends on the definition. He was also criticized for tolerating the New Deal-era policies.

    I don't think that just because time moves on that the government should grow. It's obviously grown beyond it's means and needs to be drastically cut back. It may not be in the 60's, but in the 2010's government has grown far too much and we need to cut it back.

    This is a bit romantic. Partisan politics mattered a great deal back then as well. Just as much, if not more so.
