His Mother’s Watchin’ Him, and She Won’t Let Him Go Too Far, But I Aint Got No Mother Left – “Huey Long”, T. Harry Williams

September 3rd, 2012 · No Comments · Extremism, Means and Ends, Politics, Quotes

Of Roosevelt (Long) said scornfully: “I can take him. He’s a phony… He’s scared of me. I can outpromise him, and he knows it. People will believe me and they won’t believe him. His mother’s watchin’ him, and she won’t let him go too far, but I aint got no mother left, and if I had, she’d think anything I said was all right. He’s livin’ on an inherited income. I got nothin’, so I don’t have to bother about that.”
