Eisenhower was also the last President to effectively control the nation's borders. "Operation Wetback" deported hundreds of thousands of illegal Mexican migrants. This was accomplished without any technology more advanced than binoculars and walkie-talkies. Illegal immigration from outside of this continent was kept to a minimum as well.

In terms of foreign policy, he was the most reluctant about intervention of any post-Hoover Chief Executive. The Poles, Hungarians, and East Germans suffered terribly as a result of Eisenhower's reluctance. The Israelis, British, and French were blocked from taking the Suez Canal by the U.S. That failure did not improve Israel's vulnerability to foreign attack, a situation rectified by Israeli victories in 1967 and 1973, when the U.S. strongly supported them.

Seriously? Since the Bolshevik Revolution the left was foaming at the mouth for a similar outcome in America. Perennial Presidential candidate Norman Thomas was on the right track. America allied with the Soviets in WWII and along comes Joe to piss on their parade. It's telling that American educators since the Red Scare have focused on the evils of "McCarthyism" rather than the realities of Communism.
