FDR Shows the Way

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

There is an amazing video clip that I first saw on Chris Matthews show on MSNBC of Franklin Roosevelt talking about the Republicans’ approach to domestic policy. It is an exquisite clip.  A perfect critique of Republican political deceit.  I’m struck by it’s precise rhetorical construction and  the dripping sarcasm he shows, but most of all, Roosevelt’s good humor in delivering it.  He finishes up with that famous grin, so pleased with himself for delivering the shot so well.  It is a classic.

For some reason, the clip can not be embedded, so click here to watch it.
