Quotation President Obama has not, unfortunately, done nearly as much as F.D.R. to earn the hatred of the undeserving rich. But he has done more than many progressives give him credit for, and like F.D.R., both he and progressives in general should welcome that hatred, because it's a sign that they're doing something right. - Paul Krugman, NYTimes, 1/26/14
