In case you didn't know, it was Eisenhower that created the Arctic Wildlife Refuge.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower had the foresight in 1960 to set aside this arctic treasure for future generations. Congress reaffirmed the value of the Arctic Refuge in 1980, expanding the Refuge to 19 million acres and designating most of Eisenhower’s orginal Arctic Range as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. The coastal plain was denied this critical wilderness designation because of last-minute pressure from the oil industry.
I am beginning to think there's a new way to frame the division in this country. We are not Republicans and Democrats, divided against one another. We are divided along the lines of who thinks that the President is competent and does things in our best interests, and then there are those of us who can read, tell time and tie our shoes. There are plenty of smart Republicans out there, I just wonder what they are doing and why they aren't being louder.
