  •  In fact I did diary this example... (0+ / 0-)

    it was one of my most popular diaries, and he wasn't exactly taking it in stride at the time.

    Of course -- if I were arguing your point of view, I wouldn't exactly be bringing that up in this case, because FDR was "loudly" silent on the mid-30s Costigan-Wagner anti-lynching bill, much to the disturbment of a number of civil rights activists who had backed him in '32.  In fact - a fair number of historical sources explicitly claim that FDR essentially traded his silence on the bill for votes on other legislation.
