Judicial Activism 67 Years Ago?

| | Comments (0)

For some interesting parallels between our current situation with Supreme Court justices and the president, with very similar rhetoric, but the parties reversed, see this post at Rooftop Blog. The president in question: Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the first liberal (in the modern sense). These historical comparisons are always fascinating, since most pundits don't know their history, but of course you also have to be aware of where there are differences and not assume a few things in common means even the crucial issues are the same. I have no view either way on this, but the similarity in language was just so striking that I couldn't resist pointing some more traffic toward this.
