    Yes, it is, if you read the whole statement. He didn't feel, in his heart, that he was deceiving because he honestly felt it was the right thing and what Americans would want. He was wrong, the facts say so.

    It's really not that hard to understand.

    What's funny is you attacking him for it when he is the only president, in my recollection, that ever had the balls to admit it. And please, let's not pretend any president has served without a lie; that's too naive.

    But they don't take part in the system willingly. You are forced to pay in. There is no hypocrisy in collecting the money you were forced to pay in and still being aginst a program. Take your partisan blinders off and you could probably see that.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    As many times as I've driven the 950 to and from Denver, the upcoming Western trip will be more like 700 a day with my Wife along.
    Over the Big Horns and through Yellowstone to the West Entrance.
    All roads in the park are upgraded and done.
    National Forest roads around Yellowstone/Tetons are also awesome as you know.

    That's hilarious. Times have surely changed. I can't imagine that happening today at an Indian casino.

    I enjoy reading about some of our less known Presidents. Arthur is one of my favorites.

    Incorrect. I understand the reality of how the country works and what the country needs unlike most FDR-haters. The New Deal was the hallmark of social programs that should be held up as an example for others and has done more to HELP this county than things most other Presidents have done. The only people who think that FDR caused harm are people who are just anti-liberals and go along with that belief lockstep with little actually understanding, or people who's ideology dictates their thinking rather than the other way around.

    Did you know that he's the one who really invented the "spoils system" and that "OK" gained prominence in the English vernacular because of him?
