Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - July 14, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days the 1958 Campaign moves no political party not even one that is motivated by pollsters As the republicans Are can Aloid to acknowledge that it faces a Sharp defeat in a forthcoming election. Its motto is always. and it goes Forward with the hopefulness of everlasting youth until it disappears As the whip party disappeared. Nevertheless for practical purposes it is Clear that the Republican party has pursued a suicidal political policy during the Eisenhower administration and that the democrats will take full advantage of the situation in both the 1958 and i960 campaigns. The republicans have however some Hopes i that the recession will be dissipated before election Day and that the people will be cognizant of better times. This can in no manner be affected by advertising television or propaganda in any form it is a matter of individual Well being and a sense of Security. 2. That the democrats will Over j do their anti Republican invest Gallons to tin Point where they will Boomerang the republicans Are not altogether displeased with i Oren Harris s operations of the House committee investigating Sherman Adams it has been a badly done Job which is beginning to evoke sympathy for Adams 3. That individual candidates might draw strength in particular states. It is such a Hope which motivates the candidacy of Nelson j Rockefeller for governor in new York state the Assumption is that the rocket e tiers have done so much for new York City and that they have such a Good name. That it will carry Nelson Rockefeller into the governorship. Such Hopes As la get Are not within the realm of political Pratti j c a 111 y the Republican party by tween 1932 and 1952 managed to keep itself intact As the conservative element in the country opposed to the new Deal and the fair Deal and antagonistic to what i it called creeping socialism a term invented by Herbert Hoover. The character of the party might Best be described by the tact that Dor \ ing most of tins period. Senator Robert a Taft was its Leader. However due entirely to big business influence Taft could never be nominated for president because use pol 1st Era and the Adver a using consultants on Madison Avenue had decided that Taft could not be elected. Their own selections All Bandon Wendell Willkie. Thomas f Dewey also could not be elected which j proves that their political judg a ment As to what it would have taken to defeat Roosevelt or int Man was amateurish until they found Dwight d. Eisenhower a product of the course of events. Politically. Eisenhower made the mistake from the outset of tailing to recognize that he had to be a partisan to operate successfully within the american system. He set out to destroy the conservative republicans and although there is som it appearance of Success the fart is that the rank and file it the Republican party remain conservative and that Many of them have not voted in a presidential election since 1940. I i new York state is an excellent example of what has happened the state party organization has no standing and provides no leadership. Such a mass vote As new York county is irrevocably gone to the democrats and to the Liberal party. The Republican party does not attract Young and new voters in this area except for some Young lawyers who Sci a quicker Chance to emerge in a minority party rut that leads to quarrels among ambitious youngsters seeking the benefits of bipartisan references which bring Money to individuals but not lung to a political party. Thus Nelson Rockefeller who has apparently been assured that he can defeat governor Averell Harriman moves into a strictly political fight without enough of a Patty to support him whereas the i Ibert party has been Friendly to Rockefeller when he was an appointee in the Roosevelt Truman and Eisenhower administrations that party for whatever its strength is Worth will support the democratic party As it always has although some democrats say that James a Farley cannot be nominated for United states senator because of Liberal party opposition no Leader of the Liberal party has made such a statement and it can be prognosticate that should Farley be nominated the party will endorse him and that Farley will be elected.
