When this progressive writer asked such questions of Democrats in my own community, the only response offered was to charge if I were a "secret agent for Romney." That's how pathetically the partisanistas respond on questions such as the above as well as when will THEIR President end the Bush-Obama Wars.
A long time ago, a very wise person said: "We get the government we deserve." Maybe. Or is it now perhaps: We get the government that someone buys." Either way, and no matter how egregiously unrepresentative a partisan faction of that government might be, it's to be expected that any reasonable question of its integrity and actions will be defended with partisan fervor all the way down to street level by the loyal members who are themselves most betrayed.
Ah, FDR, we hardly know you, and hardly deserve your once proud partisan banner.
