    Teddy Roosevelt and A. Lincoln would have done as much, and we have ample evidence .
    I doubt either would have threatened to pack the court. that was the really blow to the constitution because that caused a court that had struck down lots of the idiocy of FDR to start rolling over and kissing his statist ass after that

They want Govt. discredited and mistrusted too, especially the POTUS who they unnaturally fear to the point of demonization. They say it is what he does but that does not explain the anger. Obama has not really done all that much to warrant the levels I have witnessed. There must be something else, I just can't pinpoint what it is.
    Oh, and things were booming under the Libbos and would boom again, if only eveeryone would get out of Obama's way? Surely you jest!

    If that story about the name has any truth to it, it certainly shows just how amazingly stupid these tea party zealots are.

    U.S. tax burden at lowest level since '58 - USATODAY.com

    Americans are paying the smallest share of their income for taxes since 1958, a reflection of tax cuts and a weak economy, a USA TODAY analysis finds.


    By Karen Bleier, AFP/Getty Images

    The total tax burden — for all federal, state and local taxes — dropped to 23.6% of income in the first quarter, according to Bureau of Economic Analysis data.
    By contrast, individuals spent roughly 27% of income on taxes in the 1970s, 1980s and the 1990s — a rate that would mean $500 billion of extra taxes annually today, one-third of the estimated $1.5 trillion federal deficit this year.
    The analysis comes as President Obama and Congress debate whether to cut federal spending, raise taxes or both.
    Lowest tax rates in several decades and that sparked a sudden movement against high taxes coincidently at the same time we got a Black Prez? Got it.

    In all the times you have made this allegation about a fact of history, why are you unable to actually present any verifiable evidence that it was this event which caused the court to make the decisions it did? The opposite is true however. You have been presented evidence from the Chief Justice himself who stated that the court expansion idea had nothing to do with his decisions or those of the Court.

    You present nothing but rantings based on your hate for FDR combined with conspiratorial speculations. I and others have presented evidence from the historical record that you are simply wrong.

    Just because you don't know the difference between liberal and conservative is not my fault you equate certain people the wrong way.

    George Washington was incredibly liberal and left leaning as well, and I'd say the most left leaning President in history.

    Obviously you don't know the difference between a Leftist and a Classic Liberal. Google is your friend!

    Don't make up catch phrases, liberal is liberal. The US is founded on liberal policies.
