The Press Has Not Learned Anything in 50 Years

From the book by Bret Baier, Three Days in January -- Dwight Eisenhower's Final Mission (New York: William Morrow [HarperCollins] 2017), presented here without comment (pp. 276-77):
The weight of office having been lifted, those around him [Eisenhower] observed he grew warmer and mellower with age. Still, Ike kept his edge. Speaking to Ike and Mamie on the occasion of their fiftieth wedding anniversary [on July 1, 1966], an interviewer asked Ike whether he would marry the same girl if given a chance to do it all over again. Ike roared. "That's the worst question I ever heard! There's only one possible answer."

  1. Had me roaring for that one. No I suppose they haven't. Thanks for blogging, by the way. I've been a fairly regular visitor for the past few years.
