In his first term, President Franklin Roosevelt denounced "the economic royalists." He drew the line against the heartless rich: "They are unanimous in their hate for me - and I welcome their hatred."
What a different Democratic president we have today.
JG: George Soros is right. Progressives and liberals have to start looking for a better candidate in 2012. Obama is governing from the right. That is the reason progressives and liberals stayed home on November 2nd and the Democrats lost 61 seats in the House and dozens of legislative statehouses. He can't cut it. It is better to go down fighting than continuing supporting Obama. His "new beginning" with Cuba was a huge fraud. He continues Dubbya's policies like the embargo and the travel ban. Anyone but Obama or Palin!
