    •  Not really liberals, either (3+ / 0-)

      Although FDR & Truman did have certain neocon tendendies, so I'll allow that you have a point. Classical liberals, of course, would have been indignant at all this, being libertarians. Really, though, they're just hypocrites, being for policies that favor or don't affect them, and against ones that disfavor them.

      •  I strongly disagree. (0+ / 0-)

        People have a very distorted view about liberals and the history of liberalism and tend to equate liberals with leftists and that couldn't be further from the truth.

        •  Are you referring to classical or FDR liberals? (0+ / 0-)

          The former are basically libertarians, the latter left-leaning statist moderates.
