FDR, over and over ...

To all the Republicans calling “socialist” any official that supports programs that actually help working Americans rather than giving tax cuts to the rich: President Franklin Roosevelt was considered a “democratic socialist.” He was elected over and over and over and over — four times. Joe’s take: It’s too bad Huey Long died before the 1936 presidential election. With his “Share the Wealth” programs he would have given FDR a run for the money. Poor Alf Landon never had a chance.
