"I welcome their hatred."

"..Business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering... had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs... Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today... I welcome their hatred."

Excerpt from Franklin Roosevelt's Address Announcing the Second New Deal
October 31, 1936

How wonderful it would be to have such a President now, who would dare say such words...
