  • I have surfed for an answer and this is all I can find. Attributed: In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens you can bet it was planned that way. There are no records of Roosevelt having made such a statement, and this is most likely a misquotation of the widely reported comment he made in a speech at the Citadel (23 October 1935): Yes. we are on the way back — not by mere chance, not by a turn of the cycle. We are coming back more soundly than ever before because we planned it that way, and don't let anybody tell you differently.

  • Truly said by FDR: 1]"There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny". 2]"This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly". 3]"Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance". 4]"No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country". 5]"A financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W.W. The country is going through a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis". 6]"We are coming back more soundly than ever before because we planned it that way, and don't let anybody tell you differently". These are his principal and most famous quotes. What Gov. Palin said has never been quoted by FDR, perhaps she made her own quote from No. 6 above. Which ever way it is a lie not a mistake.
