Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose


Here is an excerpt from a published quotation.  It has to do with the actions of the U.S.A. President.

The quotation asserts that his actions are “.... a menace to political rights and constitutional liberties, a danger to American ideals and institutions.....a detriment to the public welfare...opposed to fundamental conception of democracy and every principal of individual property on which democracy was based....... the people elected a Democratic administration, not a socialistic dictatorship.”
Ah well.  We understand that “Tea Party” adherents have their knickers in a twist.  It’s hard for them to comprehend that we have a wise, intelligent, and stable President in Barack Obama.  We know why they say such stupid things.
Oooops!  I have misled you.  The quotation above was not from the Tea Party regarding our President (although it could well have been).
It was what the publisher William Randolph Hearst had to say about President Franklin Delano Roosevelt back in 1933.
William Randolph Hearst was as wrong in 1933, as the Tea Party adherents are wrong in 2010.
“The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
