“This is an English and Dutch country! Everyone else is here on sufferance,” - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The source of this FDR quote is...?
The quote is word for word repeated here, it from a July 25, 2012 piece NBC Chicago did on a unnamed Mitt Romney adviser. Can't say if the NBC quote is accurate, it about a third of the way down.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933-1945: A fifth cousin of Theodore Roosevelt, FDR was also descended from Claes Rosenvelt. His mother, Sara Delano, was descended from Dutch Pilgrims who arrived in America shortly after the Mayflower. In the White House, Roosevelt once railed, “This is an English and Dutch country! Everyone else is here on sufferance.”

An Internet blogger says x... so? How is that a credible source? And what does a President dead decades before the show have to do with Star Trek?
