Old Give 'em Hell Harry stuck to his guns. At the time, it did not make him popular but he faired well in the history books.

One anecdote about him that allways comes to mind is:

Truman once referred to a Republican politician's speech as "a bunch of horse manure." When an aide suggested to First Lady Bess Truman that she might want to tell her husband to "tone down" his language, she replied:

       "You don't know how many years it's taken me
       to get him to say horse manure!"
