FDR Warning about Republicans Should Inspire Democrats Today

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, often referred to by his initials FDR, was the thirty-second President of the United States. Elected to four terms in office, he served from 1933 to 1945. He also ran into the Republican tactic of name calling and division as he helped the nation through the Great Depression. After watching a PBS special on the photographic history of that time, it occured to me that the money interests allowed the country to plunge into that abyss, and lashed out a FDR for trying to help.

FDR came back with this recorded comeback. "A few timid people, who fear progress..."

Don't you wish the Democratic Party would have the courage to say what most people are thinking in the way FDR did?
