    This speech could have just as easily been given yesterday:

    Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum - Our Documents

    Agree or disagree?

    I agree with his sentiments. I disagree with many of his specific policies.

    Righteous indignation does not alone produce good governance.

    It's amusing to listen to the guy who ran an economy worse than the 7 Biblical Lean years talking about things. Wasn't so funny at the time, the same way people 70 years from now will read Obama, and Say, "God! What an asshole!!"

    That the Repubs are claiming we should be outta this ditch in under 2 years is laughable if not downright deceitful to the electorate.

    I am not an FDR fan, but I love that speech. It showed that he had balls and conviction to tackle a real threat.

    It would be awesome to see Obama have balls: to welcome hatred of the ruling class that just pillaged us and sent us into a severe economic crisis in which they mostly benefited from.

    Unfortunately, Obama rather placate people, engage in wishy-washy pragmatism, and compromise with one of the most wretched and vile GOP known to American history.

    Speaking of war-profiteering, anyone know who was invested in the Carlyle Group? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlyle_Group#Political_figures
