Interesting quote, Snopes verified.

Snopes: "...the quote from President Dwight D. Eisenhower cited at the head of this page is in fact an accurate one. It wasn't something he uttered but rather something he wrote, and the version reproduced above omits Ike's reference to a specific Texas oil tycoon (H.L. Hunt), but it otherwise is taken verbatim from a letter President Eisenhower penned to his brother, Edgar Newton Eisenhower, on 8 November 1954." Read more at http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/ikesocial.asp#87LS3ALhf6epZEsl.99
