A story told by FCR to his cabinet:
An American Marine, ordered home from Guadalcanal, was disconsolate and downhearted because he hadn’t killed even one Jap. He stated his case to his superior, who said ‘Go up on that hill over there and shout: “To hell with Emperor Hirohito!” That will bring the Japs out of hiding.’
The Marine did as he was bidden. Immediately a Jap soldier came out of the jungle, shouting “To hell with Roosevelt!”
“And of course,” said the Marine, “I could not kill a Republican.”
