Fifty-three years, ten months and eighteen days ago, Eisenhower gave what is now known as one of the most memorable farewell addresses in presidential history, excluding George Washington and his departing speech, to the nation. In this amazing address, Eisenhower expresses fears and warns of deficit spending, the corrupting influence of the military, and the possible corruption of science. In quick overview, this speech seems like a simple farewell to the nation he had served for so many years, but if you dive a little deeper, the meaning is much more multifaceted. After briefly thanking Congress, Ike then delves into the problems he foresees, identifying two main points and sub-points.
In his address to Congress on January 5, 1957, President Eisenhower, similar to President Truman, stated his belief that the United States should contribute economically to strengthen free Middle Eastern countries. In this way he hoped, like Truman, to discourage these countries from turning to the Soviet Union and communism to solve troubles. President Eisenhower also said that the United States should provide military aid to Middle Eastern countries who seek such aid (Eisenhower). Again like Truman the reasoning for this was the hope that the aid would help these countries resist any communist force or aggression. Unlike President Truman, Eisenhower called for the United States to put armed forces in the Middle East to protect and secure the independence of Middle Eastern nations from Communist armed aggression (Eisenhower).
In my opinion President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the most positively perceived and supported by the American people in political cartoons of the day. His popularity was due to the fact that he was a decorated general during World War II and people respected his leadership. He "endeared himself to the American people with his plain talk, charming smile, and sense of confidence"(Pach, 2016) that popularity is reflected in the political cartoons. Most of the cartoons I studied were more or less a gentle poke at the presidency. Many of them portrayed him golfing such as the one with Sputnik flying overhead, or the one of him putting in the oval office. There were depictions of more serious matters but on the whole they are not mean-spirited.
