FDR Booed At Obama Health Care Rally In Minnesota (Video)

President Obama fled the masses in DC today to escape to Minnesots. He gave a speech at a health care rally, days after an address to Congress on health care. The content of the speech was more or less the same as the address to Congress, but this exchange toward the end is a little interesting. Here, Obama reminds the crowd that people against reform will "fight with everything they've got", and tells Washington "pundits" who think he's doing "too much" that "change is not easy." Then, at one point, when Obama refers to FDR, a portion of the crowd boos.

Isn't Obama's dream of socialism and massive government simply an exaggerated version of FDR's vision?

FDR created the "New Deal"; Obama is giving us a "raw deal".

  1. FDR introduced SocialSecurity but I think obama needs to learn something from fdr like the following: to act as a protection to future administrations of the Government against the necessity of going deeply into debt to furnish relief to the needy--
    I am referring to the going into debt part like over 10 TRILLION dollars of debt, ah, fdr did not load up his pocket with our money. This is so messed up and the people behind O in this video shows you they are puppets of the master.

  2. One of us was there. The crowd was well controlled and thoroughly checked; very partisan. Definitely not booing the President, they were booing something about Republican calling things socialism...
