Eisenhower understood that the best way to achieve results in politics was to play dumb. ”76 The best treatment of Eisenhower as a thinker so far was Robert Griffith’s examination of the president’s economic world view. Griffith examined Eisenhower’s conception of what the author termed the corporate commonwealth which was a coherent and consistent view of the American economy and the means needed to guarantee its successful and prosperous operation. According to Griffith, Eisenhower saw inherent contradictions within modern capitalism which could be overcome by a citizenry that avoided class conflicts, restrained greed, and discouraged wicked partisan debates.
3 a. Ike’s Friends and Critics Eisenhower was the subject of many studies even before he became president. His role as Supreme Allied Commander in the European Theater of Operations propelled him to a position of global prominence. 4 The authors of these works explored Eisenhower’s childhood, his adolescence, and his formative years at West Point and as a junior officer as well as his role in formulating major war plans for the conflict against the Axis Powers. These biographies provided little in the way of scholarly analysis, offering instead entertaining, anecdotal material to satisfy the public’s demand for more detail about a national hero.
Eisenhower was not, of course, a profound or original thinker,” Griffith casually remarked. But he did offer other insights into Eisenhower’s thinking. ”77 Griffith’s study of Eisenhower’s conception of the corporate commonwealth integrated several elements of his thinking about a variety of matters and emphasized consistency and purpose rather than contradictory economic and political notions. But Eisenhower did not need to be an intellectual, as Griffith noted, to possess a certain consistent view of things, particularly the value and function of nuclear weapons in service of the American republic.
