    “Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”: FDR’s First Inaugural Address
    Franklin D. Roosevelt had campaigned against Herbert Hoover in the 1932 presidential election by saying as little as possible about what he might do if elected. Through even the closest working relationships, none of the president-elect’s most intimate associates felt they knew him well, with the exception perhaps of his wife, Eleanor. The affable, witty Roosevelt used his great personal charm to keep most people at a distance. In campaign speeches, he favored a buoyant, optimistic, gently paternal tone spiced with humor. But his first inaugural address took on an unusually solemn, religious quality. And for good reason—by 1933 the depression had reached its depth. Roosevelt’s first inaugural address outlined in broad terms how he hoped to govern and reminded Americans that the nation’s “common difficulties” concerned “only material things.”
  2. Oh lord can anyone imagine our current fearless leader, Bushy boy, trying to deliver a Roosevelt level speech to the nation? I swear I can hear his voice in my head.

    "" getting...scared.. of know..fear...and.. what was I saying?... oh yeah fear.....fear is know.. hehe"

    Ending with that stupid grin on his face.

    Suicide rate in this country would spike to record proportions right after the speech.
