1956 Presidential Campaign - Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower
I hope you like the videos I was able to find of these
speeches. Unfortunately that was an era where
recording was not so easy. What we do have must be
treasured and that is what I hope all of you will do.
Also it is my hope that you see how campaigns and
speeches were back then. A Republican in 1940
calling himself a proud Liberal, that would never be
tolerated in today's GOP. And Ronald Reagan bashing
Republicans for siding with corporations against the
workers while endorsing Democrat Harry Truman,
that is amazing as well.
Holy crap, that is amazing! Gonna take me a few days to watch all of those at least! I applaud the effort. I am really surprised only 8 flags so far.
My prediction is that it starts out from positive, and ends in mudslinging in chronological order.
It really is eye opening to see the evolution of political speeches. They really go from talking about values and principles to politics and
distractions. Pretty much it goes from passionate and heart felt words to hollow words.
