The Dems just threw Franklin under the bus and only succeeded in hurting the rest of the country. If anyone thinks the Repubs and their supporters would/will do the same they are sadly mistaken.
‘Rolling over on your back and being the "good guy" is for dogs. It’s gets you a pat on the head and a bone to chew on (if you’re lucky). Winners fight back with everything they can find. There is no such thing as winning in politics by being honest, fair or a good guy!
