FDR + GWB = ? 

Was it just me, or was there a lot of FDR referencing going on in the SOTU.

Bush has the gall to invoke the patron saint of Social Security in a speech whose primary focus is bent towards destroying the program.

First off, Bush ended the speech with a quote from the man who gave birth to the very middle class Bush is trying to murder.
Each age is a dream that is dying, or one that is coming to birth.
Then there was the "freedom from fear" reference.

Can anyone point out any other obvoius ones?

LATE UPDATE:
Browsing some things...Podesta and the "Think Progress Team" have some comments on the same here and here.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
