I get the strong impression, based on the lack of Eisenhower references by the Republicans — you’d think they’d be touting him considering he was a great war leader — that they have more or less voted him off the island for his populist views and his oft-quoted opinion about the military-industrial complex.

Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society, frequently claimed that Eisenhower was in cahoots with the Communists. I can’t remember what his evidence was, besides being “too soft” or thereabouts on the U.S.S.R. With regard to The End Series, remember that LaHaye used to be a Birchite.
