Two Quotes to Ponder:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
- H.L. Mencken

“That we are to stand by the president, right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”
-Theodore Roosevelt

Didn't FDR also say something to the effect that he feared a gov't of money as much as a gov't of the mob.

I think he may have. FDR had a very fine political sense.
