Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms”
Advertisements [?]
Via FOK News...

Answer: No snark here: take five minutes and watch this extraordinary vignette from American history – an FDR inauguration of 60 years ago, in which he declared “The Four Freedoms” filmed, in perfect color, by his son-in-law. You’ll see everybody from his son Jimmy in military uniform, walking him to the podium, to the first lady, to Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes in a judicial cap that makes him look like a French magistrate. The audio of the speech is here.
