    Franklin D. Roosevelt, one of THE most progressive, socially conscious, fair minded leaders of our nation-- when he was advocating for his New Deal policies, conservative crybabies at the time accused him of being a communist, socialist, having a direct phone line to commies in the Soviet Union, blah, blah, blah-- did that stop him from pushing through his policies?

      But having huge majorities in both the House and Senate for both his terms might have made a teensy difference.

      73rd Congress:

      Senate: 59 Ds, 36 Rs
      House: 311 Ds, 117 Rs

      74th Congress:

      Senate: 70 Ds, 23 Rs.
      House: 322 Ds, 103 Rs.

      75th Congress:

      Senate: 75 Ds, 16 Rs.
      House: 334 Ds, 88 Rs.

      76th Congress:

      Senate: 70 Ds, 22 Rs
      House: 256 Ds, 173 Rs.

      Imagine what Obama could accomplish with those numbers.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
