Dwight D. Eisenhower & Ronald Reagan

Dwight David Ike Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 – March 28, 1969) was the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He had previously been a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II, and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe; he had responsibility for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944–45, from the Western Front. Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004) was the 40th President of the United States, serving from 1981 to 1989. Prior to that, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975 and a radio, film and television actor. 5.0/5

Interesting how people are so upset about Crist changing political parties, but is it the change itself or which way the change was? THE OL' SWITCHEROO Ronald Reagan, 1962 He may be the patron saint of limited government, but Ronald Reagan started out as a registered Democrat and New Deal supporter. An F.D.R. fan, the Gipper campaigned for Helen Gahagan Douglas in her fruitless 1950 Senate race against Richard Nixon and encouraged Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President as a Democrat in 1952.
With all of this talk about the Obama Presidential Library/Museum and some entities in Chicago are politicking for this city to be considered as a site, I did 15 minutes worth of research on the topic. I Googled (10) former presidents' libraries; Jimmy Carter, William Jefferson Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Lyndon B. Johnson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, George Herbert Bush, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. I discovered two facts I think are important to consider. All of these Libraries/Museums/Centers came to fruition due to the establishment of private FOUNDATIONS. Not public funding. The other fact is, with the exception of the Reagan Library/Museum, they are all closed. Apparently, there really isn't a lot of public interest in these libraries and I believe had Reagan not been an actor before he was a politician, folks wouldn't care about his either. Therefore, my question for Chicago is,aside from some "bragging rights", how would the people benefit from such an expensive . ...
In honor of Presidents Day, check out the list of United States Presidents who have visited The Citadel: (Note: not all were serving as President at the time of their visit.) - Theodore Roosevelt - Herbert Hoover - Dwight D.

Snape plays Ronald Reagan in The Butler and Dwight D. Eisenhower is played by Robin Williams, so?
GUN FACTS: JFK was one of eight U.S. presidents to "have been lifetime members [of the NRA]." The others were "Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower... Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush." Kennedy stands out as the only Democrat on that list.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY."PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES".I got to see them all, yesterday, and all in one gigantic museum."The Henry Ford." This is adjacent to the World famous "Greenfield Village," in Dearborn, Michigan. When you first walk through the entrance, you look up and there suspended from the ceiling, is the Wright Brothers' plane from Kitty Hawk. A little further in, they have a suspended DC3. These are not reproductions, but the "real deal." They have early helicopters, Admiral Byrd's research plane used in Antarctica. They have dozens of the finest cars ever produced, along with trucks, moving vans, fuel trucks, taxi's, early farming equipment, and the car that broke the Land Speed Record. Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy,and Ronald Reagan, all have their original Presidential cars permanently displayed. And talk about trains, they have real steam engines, cars and cabooses. They even have Canadian train snowplow, used for clearing the tra ...
Ever since Democrat Adlai Stevenson challenged Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956, the odds have significantly favored those with membership in the elite groups. In 1960, both John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon were members. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson was not a member. Neither was his opponent, Barry Goldwater. But Johnson had already staffed his administration with plenty of insiders. In 1968, it was Nixon versus club member Hubert H. Humphrey. In 1972, it was Nixon again against Democratic Party CFR member George Mcgovern. In 1976, it was CFR Republican Gerald Ford losing to CFR Democrat Jimmy Carter. In 1980, Ronald Reagan was not a member, but his running mate, George H.W. Bush, was. So were both of his opponents – Carter and independent John Anderson. Assuming office, however, Reagan quickly named 313 CFR members to his team. In 1984, another CFR member, Walter Mondale, was nominated by the Democratic Party to challenge Reagan. In 1988, CFR member Bush took on CFR member M ...
History The football dates back to Dwight D. Eisenhower, but its current usage came about in the aftermath of the Cuban missile crisis, when John F. Kennedy was concerned that a Soviet commander in Cuba might launch missiles without authorization from Moscow.[5] It has been stated in an Associated Press article that the nickname "football" was derived from an attack plan codenamed "Dropkick".[3] The nickname has led to some confusion as to the nature—and even the shape—of the device; in the graphic novel series Watchmen, Richard Nixon, fictionally depicted as still being President in 1985, was depicted with a literal "nuclear football"—a metal device shaped like a football— handcuffed to his wrist in an emergency. While it is never explicitly stated what it is, it is implied that the device either contains the same materials as the real-life nuclear football, or is an electronic activation source for the nuclear option. During their presidencies, both Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan preferred to ke ...
Now, let’s take a look at how we reached the current federal debt limit of nearly $14.3 trillion. A statutory limit on federal borrowing was first established with the Second Liberty Bond Act of 1917, which helped finance the nation’s entry into World War I, according to the Congressional Research Service. That act allowed separate limits for different forms of debt. In 1939, Congress eliminated those separate limits and set up the first aggregate limit covering nearly all public debt. During the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the debt ceiling was raised annually between 1941 and 1945 to pay for the costs associated with World War II. The limit was increased to $65 billion in 1941. Soon after the debt limit was increased to $300 billion in April 1945, Truman became president. The debt ceiling was reduced to $275 billion in June 1946, and the Korean War was primarily financed by higher taxes, not increased debt. The debt ceiling would not increase until 1954, when Dwight D. Eisenhower was preside ...
Ronald Reagan on unions and collective bargaining: “Where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost.” Dwight D. Eisenhower: “Only a fool would try to deprive working men and working women of their right to join the union of their choice.”
He disgraces the legacy of George Washington, Calvin Coolidge, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan.
So I took the family to Man of Steel tonight (good movie), and one of the previews was a movie called "The Butler " which is about Cecil Gaines, the White House butler who served eight presidents. Looks like a good movie but the casting seems like someone was just kidding around. Imagine John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Liev (Sabretooth) Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, Alan (Snape) Rickman as Ronald Reagan, Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan, James (Cyclops) Marsden as John F Kennedy, Robin Williams as Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Mariah Carey as field slave, Hattie Pearl. I know where next years casting Oscar is going. :)
What do Abraham Lincoln, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King, Jr. have in common??? REPUBLICAN'S who fought for 'Civil Rights'.
Remember I posted the American Romanticist Thomas Cole's Course of Empire series oil paintings? The American and Jewish histories are the similar cycle. When the country is getting blessed by God so much, people and their descendants are prosperous, some of them may finally betray the moral value and make this country decline. The American histories of George Washington to James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln to Chester A. Arthur, Grover Cleveland to Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt to Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower to Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama are like this.

The following is a list of 100 Anti-War quotes. Many of them come from America's venerated Founding Fathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams. Many also, come from conservative voices like Pat Buchanan, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Ayn Rand, and even George W. Bush (before he became president and went back on his campaign promises to keep America out of open-ended wars and nation-building). 1. "As far as I am concerned, war itself is immoral." -U.S. WWII General Omar Bradley 2.

  This article was published just before President Ronald Reagan's funeral. If it had been used the bugle would have stayed at the Reagan Library. Thank Goodness it wasn't...   Taps' bugle has a history By KNUT ROYCE, NEWSDAY JUNE 2004   WASHINGTON -- When the Army's top bugler performs the 24 serene notes of taps at Ronald Reagan's burial ceremony in California Friday, Long Island attorney John Vincent Bach will be watching "maybe a little misty-eyed, but proud," he says. The bugle will be a Bach bugle, perhaps the one designed by his late grand-uncle Vincent Bach in 1962 that bade farewell to John F. Kennedy the following year. Or maybe it will be a more evolved model built by the company that bought out Vincent Bach's musical instrument factory in Mount Vernon, N.Y. John Bach and some Reagan family associates said they hope it's the Kennedy bugle, which later sounded taps at the funerals of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1969, Harry S Truman in 1972, and Lyndon B. Johnson in 1973. A close Reagan family fri ...
PRESIDENTS DAY Quotes from the past: Abraham Lincoln - Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. Ronald Reagan - Where free unions & collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost. Ronald Reagan - We establish no religion in this country. We mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church & state are & must remain separate. Teddy Roosevelt - I believe that there should be a very much heavier progressive tax on very large incomes, a tax which should increase in a very marked fashion for the gigantic incomes. Dwight D. Eisenhower - Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws & farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few ...
My favorite president is King George Bush the Second, although Dwight D. Eisenhower is a close second, and third place goes to Woodrow Wilson. I know, Ronald Reagan was a badass, but I base my decision on historical significance.

Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box The above is a book authored by Deitrick and Goldfarb that I finished reading today. I normally do not read books on economics at this stage in my life but this was a gift from one of my conservative friends. The book is an economic chronicle from Herbert Hoover to George W Bush. I am cherry picking one section of the research the authors revealed in the book. If it strikes you as interesting I guess you can read the remainder of the book yourself. What would a $100,000 (401K) look like at the end of each president’s term? 1. Herbert Hoover $17,896 2. Franklin D. Roosevelt $277,500 3. Harry Truman $181,076 4. Dwight D. Eisenhower $208,047 5. JFK/LBJ $158,710 6. Richard Nixon/ Gerald Ford $100,800 7. Jimmy Carter $140,729 8. Ronald Reagan $212,234 9 George H. Bush $157,945 10. Bill Clinton $341,894 11. George W.

Many within the T.E.A party movement rate Ronald Reagan as one of the best Presidents the U.S ever had. I am curious though, how do you rate Dwight D. Eisenhower in comparison to Ronald Reagan, good, bad or indifferent?
Here is a new important day on the History of this Nation, the Presidential Inauguration. For the first time since 1985, this Inauguration is taking back place on the 21st of January instead of the 20th. Barack Obama, is then sworn for the second time, to join a list of US Presidents that served 2 times. This list includes: Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Cleveland was the only one to serve 2 non-consecutive terms.   In the History of the United States, there were also cases of other Presidents who served 2 terms as well, one of them was shortened due to several circumstances, this list includes: George Washington, Harry S. Truman, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Richard M. Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, William Mckinley and Abraham Lincoln.   Of course, the case of Franklin D. Roosevelt is special due to the circumstances of World War II. FDR served t ...
We're making progress ... The Washington National Cathedral, the nation's traditional host of prayer services for presidents and memorial services for national tragedies, announced on Wednesday that it would now also hold weddings for same-sex couples. The cathedral, a neo-Gothic landmark in northwest Washington, is the seat of the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church and the Washington Diocese. [...] [T]he cathedral's step carries weight because of its historic role as the nation's unofficial capitol of worship, where Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan were eulogized, where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his last Sunday sermon and where the nation mourned the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Later this month, the cathedral will host the second inaugural prayer service for President Obama. The cathedral's dean, the Very Rev. Gary Hall, told the AP, "I read the Bible as seriously as fundamentalists do. And my reading of the Bible leads me to want to do this bec ...
Watching Gone With The Wind. Seems appropriate given the current state of affairs. Here's some tidbits about Clark Gable you might enjoy. Gable was politically conservative, though he never publicly spoke about politics. His third wife, Carole Lombard, was an activist liberal Democrat, and she cajoled him into supporting Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal. In 1944, he became an early member of the conservative Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, alongside Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and other conservative actors and filmmakers. In February 1952, he attended a televised rally in New York where he enthusiastically urged General Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President. This was when Eisenhower was still being sought by both parties as their candidate. Despite having suffered a severe coronary thrombosis, Gable still managed to vote by mail in the 1960 presidential election.
It was 4 years ago today -- On Nov. 4, 2008, Democrat Barack Obama was elected the first black president of the United States, defeating Republican John Mccain. Also on this day in the American presidency and vice presidency, Nov. 4: • 1884, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected to his first term as president, defeating Republican James G. Blaine. • 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected president, defeating Democrat Adlai Stevenson. • 1980, Ronald Reagan won the White House as he defeated President Jimmy Carter by a strong margin. • 1991, Ronald Reagan opened his presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.; in attendance were President George H.W. Bush and former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford and Richard Nixon — the first-ever gathering of five past and present U.S. chief executives. • 2002, President George W. Bush barnstormed through four battleground states — Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas — in a final appeal for Republicans in Congress; Democrats worked for a strong vote ...
vAttention all true Republicans...who mold themselves in the cloth of Abraham Lincoln,,Dwight D. Eisenhower, and ...yes Ronald Reagan. It's time to step up to the plate and take one for the Gipper. I respectfully suggest that the best way for Republicans to save the Republican Party is either sitting out this election or voting for President Obama and the Democratic or Idependent candidates. Absurd ? A joke? Hardly! The Republican Party in the last five years has been hijacked by the funding of the Koch Brother's working bees AKA the Tea Party, anonymous Super Pacs, and Republican elected officals & candidates signing of their souls away to the no tax pledge drive of Grover Norquist. They have bullied & intimidated their way in myopic, narrow mindedness, seeking obstructionism over common ground and the betterment of our country, let alone their own party. Such policies have driven out moderate, and reasonable Republicans like Maine Senator Olympia Snowe and Ohio Congressman Steve Latourette. Neither Pres ...
Tuesday is Election Day. We elect a new president Mitt Romney or reelect Pres. Obama on that day. I have read a great deal about all our presidents. We have had l2 army generals who became presidents. George Washington was the first president and the first general to become president, and Dwight D. Eisenhower was the last general to become president in l952, 60 years ago. Who were the best presidents of all the l2 generals? Historians rate George Washington as the best president of the l2 generals. Eisenhower is rated second and Ulysses S Grant is rated a distant third. Generals make great warriors. They are taught to kill as many enemies as quickly and inexpensively as possible. That, as a rule, do not make great presidents, and that is why we have not elected a general as president now for 60 years...Four presidents have been assassinated, all shot to death. The four were Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William Mckinley and JFK. Andrew Jackson and Ronald Reagan were shot but survived. T ...

TRR: Romney Gallup Numbers Best Since 1936 ← return to The Robbins Report Mitt Romney’s Gallup daily tracking poll numbers are now better than any presidential challenger dating back to 1936. The Gallup daily tracking poll of likely voters released on October 26 shows Mr. Romney leading Barack Obama 51% to 46%.

Every modern president to be re-elected -- Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Clinton, George W. Bush -- has gotten a bigger share of the vote in their second bid for office than their first, and with it, a chance to claim a mandate. What has never happened before is an incumbent being returned to office after the majority of the electorate voted to throw him out. If the election were held today, that is likely what would be occuring.
An intriguing pattern has emerged over the last 150 years: When the U.S. Presidential election is held on November 6th the Republican candidate always wins. In 1860, the first year the presidential election fell on November 6th, Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, was elected to office. The next time the election was held on the 6th of November, Benjamin Harrison, also Republican, won. On November 6th, 1900, Republican William Mckinley defeated William Jennings Bryan. In 1928, Herbert Hoover, a Republican, won on the 6th. In 1956, on November 6th, Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson to be re-elected. And Republican incumbent Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale on November 6, 1984. The trend doesn't look good for Democrat Barack Obama heading into this year's election. But all might not be lost for this country's Democrats. Just last week OutFront posted a blog about how this year's Oscar results guaranteed an Obama win. Or maybe, despite all of these strange coincidences, it might ...
"Since 1973, the Lovenstein Institute has published its research on each new president, which includes the famous "IQ" report among others. According to statements in the report, there have been twelve presidents over the past 50 years, from F. D. Roosevelt to G. W. Bush who were all rated based on scholarly achievements, writings that they alone produced without aid of staff, their ability to speak with clarity, and several other psychological factors which were then scored in the Swanson/Crain system of intelligence ranking. " The study determined the following IQs of each president as accurate to within five percentage points: 147 Franklin D. Roosevelt (D) 132 Harry Truman (D) 122 Dwight D. Eisenhower (R) 174 John F. Kennedy (D) 126 Lyndon B. Johnson (D) 155 Richard M. Nixon (R) 121 Gerald Ford (R) 175 James E. Carter (D) 105 Ronald Reagan (R) 98 George H. Bush (R) 182 William J. Clinton (D) 91 George W.

Today’s Republican Party is not the same party it was under Lincoln, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan. The true key to this that these presidents where not as extreme right as the party is today. President Lincoln brought the country together after the civil war but ensured the constitutional promise that all man are created equal by freeing the slaves through the emancipation proclamation (executive order) for those keeping count. The Republican Party had not always been so extreme even Eisenhower who was one of the top generals from World War II saw his forces come together and fight for a common purpose and desegregation of the military was under his watch as the supreme allied commander during the war. The part of his Presidency sowed the seeds of change to come during the sixties that led to the Civil Rights movement because many of the men and women who came back from the war got a taste of working hand and hand with all races and after they was coming home from the war and became close f ...
List of my top 10 favorite presidents from 1900-present: 1) FDR 2) JFK 3) Bill Clinton 4) Teddy Roosevelt 5) Lyndon Johnson 6) Dwight D. Eisenhower 7) Harry Truman 8) Barack Obama 9) George H. Bush ( Yes, I put him above Reagan because he had much better control of the federal deficit) 10) Ronald Reagan ($900 billion to $2.8 trillion in federal debt.much larger % increase than Obama) but I would still take him over GWB anyday... This list is just the presidents who I personally liked the most because of certain accomplishments they made and what they personally stood for. None of them are perfect but some had a greater impact on my life than others.
Good morning everyone. Looks like a fine day out there. It is beautiful weather for sleeping. 16 degrees. INTERESTING FACTS: PRESIDENTIAL DINING: Dwight D. Eisenhower liked to watch Westerns while he ate T.V. dinners. Lyndon B. Johnson was the first president to host a barbeque on the White House lawn. Lyndon B. Johnson's favorite foods were canned green peas and tapioca. Thomas Jefferson once ate a tomato in public to prove it wasn't poisonous. Guests at Ronald Reagan's 1980 inaugural parties, consumed 40 million jelly beans. I'll save some of these for a later date. Have a good day folks.

Making Judgments August 4 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven" (Luke 6:37). Have you ever made a judgment about a person or situation only to discover how wrong you were in your assessment? Such was the case in a story told by Os Guinness in his book, The Call. "Arthur F. Burns, the chairman of the United States Federal Reserve System and ambassador to West Germany, was a man of considerable gravity. Medium in height, distinguished, with wavy silver hair and his signature pipe, he was economic counselor to a number of presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Ronald Reagan. When he spoke, his opinions carried weight and Washington listened. Arthur Burns was also Jewish, so when he began attending an informational White House group for prayer and fellowship in the 1970s, he was accorded special respect. In fact, no one knew quite how to involve him in the group and, week after week when different people took turns to end ...

factoid: last time the goverment budget was balanced was when Bill Clinton was in office. The biggest budget deficeit was created when Ronald Reagan was in office. The person that balanced the budget before Bill Clinton was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957.
"Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better." --Harry S. Truman "You do not lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership." --Dwight D. Eisenhower "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done." --Ronald Reagan

Abraham Lincoln came in first place, while Ronald Reagan placed second. Franklin D. Roosevelt came in third, followed by John F.

has no voting record, Oh, I get it, Frank has no “voting record,” ergo, he’s not ‘qualified’ to be a Congressman. Wake up call: Ronald Reagan was elected President of the United States twice, and had NO VOTING RECORD!!! Likewise, Ulysses S. Grant and Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republicans all!!! So, are we supposed to believe that serving for 16 years as a county legislator, with a “voting record,” entitles one to promotion to the United States House of Representatives, while actually serving in the United States Congress for more than 4 years as Counsel for the Constitution on the Senate Judiciary Committee, makes Frank less qualified that Fran??? You must be joking!!! That’s like saying a guy who has been racing go-karts for 16 years is better qualified to drive in the Indianapolis 500 than a guy who spent over 4 years building and servicing Indy cars!!! Absurd!!!
The current Republican Party has been hijacked. It is no longer the party of Dwight D. Eisenhower (moderate). Barry Goldwater (a true conservative), Richard Nixon (moderate), Ronnald Reagan (moderate), and George H. W. Bush (moderate). It is now a party taken over by right wing religious (social interests) and right wing corporate/Koch brothers (economic interests) entities. These entities created the Tea Party Fascist movement. A movement that exists solely because of the election of a "black" President. Even Jeb Bush said his father and Ronald Reagan would lose out in today's GOP.
"According to President Obama, he's a historic figure. That's no figure of speech. ... President Obama ... authorized his staff to add his name to the biographies of former presidents from Calvin Coolidge to George W. Bush on the White House website. ... This massive sense of ego has led Obama to the inevitable conclusion that his is the only opinion that matters. If he is the culmination of Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower, then he is also the culmination of all moral thought for the last several thousand years. ... Obama's ego has disconnected him from everyday Americans. ... Obama's arrogance would be amusing were it not so insanely dangerous. When it comes to the world stage, it is Obama's perverse self-assurance that he can right all wrongs merely by talking at them that has doomed much of the Middle East to generations of darkness. When it comes to domestic policy, it is Obama's egotistic belief that he knows best and that Americans are simply ignorant, which has led him to em ...
Allen West IS George Washington , Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan all rolled into ONE neat package , this man MUST run now, 2016 will be far too late .
Did you know Lincoln was nominated as the Republican candidate through a brokered convention? The favorite at the time was William H. Seward. Lincoln was regarded as a Dark Horse contender with no chance of victory. However, he won the nomination on the third ballot, and as we all know, went on to win the presidency that November. Other Republican presidents who were nominated at a brokered convention include: Rutherford Hayes (7th ballot), James Garfield (36th ballot), Warning Harding (10th ballot), Dwight D. Eisenhower (2nd ballot). The closest we have come to a brokered convention in modern times was in 1976, when neither President Gerald R. Ford nor challenger Ronald Reagan arrived at the convention with a majority of the delegates, but Ford rallied to a win on the first ballot. The bottom line? Republican brokered conventions result in presidential wins! See you at the Convention, Newt!!
