In the 1948 presidential election, communists in government was the go-to Republican issue against incumbent Harry Truman. Truman’s opponent was New York Gov. Tom Dewey, a Republican internationalist who insisted on downplaying the communist issue and would not use it as an attack against Truman. This incensed the base-line, conservative Robert Taft republicans who never forgave Dewey.

For the upcoming national elections, we can expect Trump and most of his party to attack the left-wing ‘socialist’ Democrats and their fake-news NY Times collaborators who are sabotaging our government.

Do Republicans have any Tom Deweys left?
