RE: Do we really want un-informed citizens to vote?
I plead fatique.
Of course, Truman was a democrat, my mistake. In my origianl post I started with Ike, but as I started the response, my mind switched from " republican presidents" to " presidents whom the 'intellectuals" have derided as stupid". Truman does fall into the later category, but not the original. Just an example of ADD.
Anyway, the list more properly should have been, " more or less conservative presidents, whom the liberals have called 'stupid'". The reason Nixon would not be on that list is because he was hardly a conservative. He wasn't nearly a liberal as HHH, but Nixon's trip to China and his wage and price controls did not spring from a conservative mindset.
