FDR On The Modern Republican Party
The whole segment with Stewart is great, but the clip of FDR is prime, grade-A television.
It’s just so startlingly relevant and, dare I say, timely in light of the Romney/Ryan plan to balance the budget by adding giant, heaping barrelfuls of new tax cuts to the deficit and not actually tackling entitlement spending by doing anything more than passing the buck. And Roosevelt was speaking long before the onset of supply-side economics.
I suppose one must conclude: the more things change, the more they stay the same. Alas.
