NUMBER:250
AUTHOR:Harry S. Truman (1884–1972)
QUOTATION:People are very much wrought up about the Communist bugaboo.
ATTRIBUTION:President HARRY S. TRUMAN, letter to George H. Earle, former governor of Pennsylvania, received February 28, 1947.—The New York Times, April 3, 1947, p. 17, quoting Earle.

  That same day, in response to a question at his press conference, Truman said, “I am not worried about the Communist Party taking over the Government of the United States, but I am against a person, whose loyalty is not to the Government of the United States, holding a Government job. They are entirely different things. I am not worried about this country ever going Communist. We have too much sense for that.”—Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: Harry S. Truman, 1947, p. 191.
SUBJECTS:Communism
