This explains why elitist libs (as opposed to old-fashioned Democrats) don’t think much of Harry Truman.
given that truman wanted to eliminate the Marine Corps and almost destroyed to military to the point soldiers in japan where going to pacific battle sites to salvage repair parts for thie tanks, i don’t hold him in as high a regard as many.
though he did smackdown macarthur who is one of the most over-rated generals in ww2.
let the flames begin.
Yeah, worthy of note that Truman was the last Democrat that Rondaldus Maximus campaigned for... just a few years prior to Reagan’s famously claiming “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party... it left me.”
The Dems used to have lots of sensible moderates...
