Pearl Harbor Day

Well, today is the 63rd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the worst attack on American soil before 9/11. My dad, who was just a young boy at the time, says he remembers sitting in the living room with his parents and listening to the radio hearing FDR's famous words, "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy". The audio of that speech can be heard here, along with the text.

Meanwhile, while other Americans reverently remember the honor due to our veterans who sacrificed so much, DNC Chair Terry Mcauliffe took the occasion to attack the GOP. Pathetic.
