(North Africa 1943 - Slow progress - Sicily was next)


Taking a small breather from the news in Arizona, today (July 28th) in 1943 saw the allies making advances in North Africa and Sicily. World War 2 was slowly turning around as the fascist regime of Mussolini was on the verge of collapse. President Roosevelt made an address to the American people, giving a progress report. Even as the tide of war was turning in our favor, there was still partisan bickering going on at home.

Pres. Roosevelt: “I am sorry if I step on the toes of those Americans who, playing party politics at home, call that kind of policy crazy altruism and starry-eyed dreaming.”

The Party of No just never changes, even sixty-seven years ago.
