Harry Truman signed press release -- likely as President, of his address at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, the nationally televised annual fundraiser for the Democratic party. Dated 29 March 1952, Truman is unabashedly political in this election year, criticizing the Republican party at length. Speech reads in part, ''…One of the things I like about the [Jefferson-Jackson] dinners is the fact that they are political meetings. I like political meetings, and I like politics. / Politics -- good politics -- is public service…I have been in politics more than thirty years…from precinct to President, and I am a little bit proud of that career.'' He then discusses the 1952 Presidential election, ''For twenty years the Republicans have been wandering in a political desert -- like camels looking for an oasis. They don't drink the same thing that camels do, though. And if they don't find it pretty soon, the Republican Party may die out, altogether…The first reason…they were voted out in 1932 because they had brought the country to the brink of ruin. / In the 1920s, the Republican administrations drew back in petrified isolation from our world responsibilities. They spent all their time trying to help the rich get richer, and paid no attention to the welfare of the workers and the farmers. All in all, they paved the way for the biggest economic smash-up this country has ever seen…People don't want any more 'Great Depressions'...'' Signed by Truman at the conclusion. Seven pages on four sheets measures 8'' x 14''. Folds and last page detached from staple. Overall near fine.
