A few decades ago that was "Sieg Heil" and it sounded just as righteous to the people saying it. Jim

When nothing else works, call the bastard a Nazi. Great technique.

Yeah, we got real Nazis marching in Toledo, and all you can do is call the President a Nazi.
Get real.;

How about a Gaiseric, or a Gaul, or maybe even something as bad as a Vandal? If all else does not please then always resort to Mongolians.

At least you display occasional flashes of literary originality, Boeotian.

Well, at least I didn't come up with some convoluted way to call him a bastard. Jim

Another with Pres. Clinton-- On his visit to commemorate 50 years since D Day. While strolling on Omaha beach, he stoops down and picks up some stones and arranges them in the form of a cross, as a lone battleship glides by in the distance. Press photographers were present at just the right spot to catch the image of the President, the cross of stones and the Battleship. Oh, there are no stones on Pmaha beach-they had been placed there by an aide.
When I read this paragraph, I thought I was going mad.

I lived on the grounds of this military cimetary (and others) and can attest that it would be difficult to casually fashion a pile of stones to represent anything, there are virtually no stones on Omaha beach, you'd have to bring them from the hills right behind.

It seems all is fair in love, war and politics!

Both sides in this discussion can present equally appalling mis-representations by the other side. Without pointing fingers, we should recognize that this can't go further than:

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

Roosevelt standing behind a desk, car, boat rail, etc.
Damn that Roosevelt for getting polio and then having the audacity to think that the country might not have confidence in a president who was a cripple.

The nerve of that punk. Thanks Bot, for setting the record straight.
Dude, you missed the point.

Or are you suggesting that propaganda is okay as long as the goal is something that pleases you?

B
I'm not so sure I did. This isn't the first time you've gone out of your way to take pot-shots at Roosevelt's infirmity. What's the point? The man ought to be saluted for accomplishing as much as he did in spite of it.

Compare Roosevelt's treatment of vets to Hoover's. And yet, Repubs everywhere continue to pillory Roosevelt for having the audacity to help the common man rise out of the deression.

RE: More fake news from the Bush Administration

CMAC2012,
You must have missed the point. Here, let me help you. Bot was not insulting Roosevelt. He was merely stating the obvious that politicians present themselves in a favorable light. ( Isn't it interesting that the new statue to honor Roosevelt shows him in a wheelchair--a pose that he would never have allowed, had he been alive)
Its more subtle than saying " everybody does it".
It is the way of politicians. As long as we have a political ruling class we will have this.
Returning to a citizen legislature might reduce this tendency.
