 FDR's grandson: Hume should resign

James Roosevelt Jr., grandson of our 32nd president, and former associate commissioner on Social Security, says Brit Hume should resign:
ROOSEVELT: It is really quite amazing that all of the folks supporting privatization, from the president on down, keep invoking the name of my grandfather, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I think it's, in a way, it is flattering to him. It's a testimony to how successful the program that he put in place has been and continues to be. And there's -- on the screen you just saw my dad standing next to my grandfather. There he is again.

OLBERMANN: But you are convinced from all that you know, and if anyone actually literally took all of the words of your grandfather and went through them with the proverbial fine-tooth comb, they would have never found anything in his mind, ultimate privatization, in whole or in part, of Social Security.

ROOSEVELT: I'm definitely convinced of that. And I'm convinced he never intended to phase it out.
