When FDR said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," he also said too low for the mic to pick up, "Fear itself and Nazis that is."

Lincoln said "A house divided cannot stand," but the end of the quote was ...unless it has steel construction."

Calvin Coolidge said "The business of America is Business." What he actually said was lost in the crowd noise. The reclusive Silent Cal actually said "the business of Americans should be to mind their own business."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
