Enemies Galore -- and Loving It!

From a May 1945 radio broadcast of New York Mayor Fiorella LaGuardia. As I like to say: Don't trust a man who has no enemies.

Yes, I have the proof, the living proof. My friends, you must have noticed it too. Isn't it grand? -- there isn't a single, solitary County Chairman of either party who is in favor of my administration. Isn't that grand? There isn't a single, solitary district leader of the political machines who wants to see me re-elected. There isn't a clubhouse loafer who is not out shouting his head off against my administration. There is the proof, my friends, that these twelve years have not been in vain. We must talk now of what we are going to do and plan accordingly.
