President Bush said: “We will pass along to our children all the freedoms we enjoy — and chief among them is freedom from fear. … As Franklin Roosevelt once reminded Americans, ‘each age is a dream that is dying, or one that is coming to birth.’”

FACT: FDR’s grandson James Roosevelt Jr.: “This summer, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s name and legacy were invoked by almost a dozen speakers at the Republican National Convention. But George W. Bush is not, and never will be, a president like FDR.”

FACT: “The implication that FDR would support privatization of America’s greatest national program is an attempt to deceive the American people and an outrage.”
