Time to Shake off Shackles of Control Fastened upon us by Conservatism, Reaction, and Appeasement

So it turns out that FDR wrote this back in 1940.

Just how long have we been letting these assholes control the debate because they are immature and we are too nice?

This is against our nature as Democrats, too nice for our own good...

but we need to tell the current crop of Republicans, and their corporate media whores

to Sit Down and Shut the Fuck up.

WE WON!

WE ARE RIGHT!

The nation supports us, we know what to do to fix the problems.

They are behaving like three year olds, they need a time out. WE need to let them whine and cry in the corner while we do what is right for the nation. It is for their own good.

1. FDR knew just how to handle them.

I hope Obama studies up on his techniques.

3. This is more about US actually- We the People pushed FDR into his greatness

 


Obama needs US to push him.

Just as our great ancestors fought for US, we need to fight for our children's future.

He doesn't want to take all the blame, and he needs to be able to tell his corporate backers 'hey, I had to. The people made me do it'

4. Agreed but FDR really went after people to push him.

I think Obama has done some of that but we may need a bigger push.

5. Someone here must have the quote...

 


Didn't Obama already tell us we must push him into acting?

Maybe we can put in on a picture and spread it around facebook.

12. I also saw a 1-on-1 interview where he

said: "...that's why the progressives need to keep fighting..."

I've looked and looked but can't find the interview. I think it was some time
after the extension of the tax breaks and the within the next 30 days or so.

I wish someone smarter than me would look for it...
