I stumbled across this speech by Eisenhower while searching for something else. I don't know enough about him to say whether the remarks are as extemporaneous as claimed, but how nice to be told up front someone is trying to persuade us. How amazing to hear a President say something is complex, speaking in humble manner. The contrast with the current situation is painful.
Someone should gather Washington DC together (yes, all parties and persons) for Story Time and read it to them. Not that they would necessarily listen, alas.
