President Bush invoked the name of former President Harry Truman 17 times today in his West Point commencement address. “Bush drew parallels between Mr Truman’s Cold War efforts and his own in fighting global terrorism.” One Truman quote that Bush did not invoke today: “I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”
