They forget that FDR ran as an economic conservative. An excerpt from a newpaper column of the day, as recorded in Time Magazine:
"The Republican party is a discredited failure and the Democratic party a contemptible imitation of a discredited failure.
"The Republican party is going out of power because it has followed Mr. Hoover, and the Democratic party is trying to come into power by following the same blind leadership.
"When the blind lead the blind, both fall into the ditch and when the blind lead the dumb the same catastrophe occurs.
"Mr. Hoover is an internationalist of the Wilson order. . . . Mr. Roosevelt is the same kind of an internationalist and so is Mr. Baker and so is Mr. Ritchie and so is Mr. Al Smith--all Wall Street internationalists.
"The hope of the Republican party is in Calvin Coolidge. The hope of the Democratic party is in John N. Garner. Failing these, the hope of the public is in a third party.
"Hee! Haw! Perhaps the jackasses are NOT coming back.
... that Hillary Clinton was fine with Florida and Michigan voters being disenfranchised by their Republican state legislators until after Super Tuesday, when she realized that Obama was going to beat her in the other 48 states.
Pretending otherwise is exactly the sort of blinded, cultish behavior of which you accuse Obama supporters.
Take it out on those who really did the dirty deed on you, and on your own Congressional delegation, who also worked to blocke a legitimate Summer primary.
... or any of that gotcha crap. That's old Rovian politics. Americans are disgusted with that noise.
The polls are tightening because the dwindling Reagan Democrats who Rendell says aren't ready to vote for a black guy are being overwhelmed by the new registrations of younger Democrats who are enthused about voting for the best candidate for the job.
That's why Obama is up in the polls, and that's why Obama will win in the GE.
Lin's heart-rending propoganda screed was certainly effective, but it was at its base unscrupulously dishonest, in that it took a tiny excerpt of Obama's words and horribly twisted their meaning, while she appeals like a Republican to white folks' resentments about affirmative action.
Pretending that Obama has been race-baiting is pure projection, especially given her long anti-Obama history.
I found her "oh, we poor, poor white people are so put-upon" very similar to Mr. Duke's long-stated beliefs, and his words are certainly consitent with hers.
