Eisenhower Leaves Republican Party

3:21pm UK, Thursday August 21, 2008 The granddaughter of former US president Dwight Eisenhower says she is officially leaving the Republican Party. Sky News: First For Breaking News

Writing for the National Interest online, an internal Republican Party publication, Susan Eisenhower made the announcement.

Instead she will be an independent because she said: "The GOP (Republican party) of today bears no resemblance to Lincoln, (Teddy) Roosevelt or Eisenhower's Party, or many of the other Republican administrations that came after that."

She said "My decision came at the end of last week when it was demonstrated to the nation that McCain and this Bush White House have learned little in the last five years.

The end of last week? As in Friday? She should have waited until Saturday night, and made her decision AFTER McCain's performance.

Who really cares? What’s her motivation? Does she need some media attention? I assume Ike has more grandchildren. Are they all defecting?

It is when the guy who ran as the Dem Vice Presidential candidate 8 years ago is switching parties.

Ms Eisenhower was one of the original "Republicans for Obama" having founded the a breakaway group within the party which supported Barack Obama.

All I need to know. It's a publicity stunt.

Hey Susan, quit using your grandfather for political advantage! He would have disowned you the moment you married that Russian space cadet.

Take a look at Ms. Eisenhower’s campaign contribution records. Zip contributions to Republicans on the FEC database. But conributions to Obama. I’m sorta curious how she calls herself a Republican....

Ike wasn’t sure if he was a republican or a democrat and was
being courted by both parties to run in 52 and he had a hard time making the decision..

Because, of course, Barak Obama certainly epitomizes everything her grandfather and Reagan stood for.

Stop being an attention-whore, Susie - no one gives a rat’s about you.

Good. Take your abortion-loving, nepotistic, do-you-know-who-my-grandfather-was, country-club, Nelson-Rockefeller-was-my-hero, RINO ass out of the GOP and never come back.

Good riddance. If she were honest, she’d just register as a Democrat and get it over with. She pro-abortion, pro-big taxes. Get out of our party and stay out.

Ike himself was barely a Republican. He was an independent until 1952.

He gave us the gift of Earl Warren, a gift that keeps on giving.
