Nuevo Acuerdo

Let me warn you and let me warn the Nation against the smooth evasion which says, “Of course we believe all these things; we believe in social security; we believe in work for the unemployed; we believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die, we believe in all these things; but we do not like the way the present Administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them- we will do more of them we will do them better; and, most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything.”

But, my friends, these evaders are banking too heavily on the shortness of our memories. No one will forget that they had their golden opportunity—twelve long years of it.

Remember, too, that the first essential of doing a job well is to want to see the job done. Make no mistake about this: the Republican leadership today is not against the way we have done the job. The Republican leadership is against the job’s being done.

One thought on “Nuevo Acuerdo

  1. a says:

    The choice to be made is for Obama, but what a poor choice we have. We watched the documentary ‘Inside Job’ last night; the same bozos and bought frauds like Hubbard that helped tank the economy are still running the show, largely thanks to appointments by Obama. Summers, really Obama? The Democratic party is no longer the same party that Roosevelt was part of. I am voting for them, though they are merely the best of two poor choices.
