  •  I agree we need a FDR - what he turned out to be. (0+ / 0-)

    But there is a huge difference between then and now. Back then those whiny, angry, sanctimonius, despair-porn peddling commie, pinko, lefty, socialists went on riots, strikes and threatened FDR every which way possible. Like David Korten says, when people lead, the leaders will  follow.

    For sure, FDR was more populist in rhetoric than Obama. But he had to be pushed. But I don't agree with the Obama apologists when they use "make me do it" as an excuse for his inaction.

    NYT reader comment (via Susan Ohanian) : Arne Duncan great example of peter Principle. Failed in Chicago; then promoted so he could repeat failure on national scale.
