: I have searched all the quotation books for this well-known phrase.
I believe the original was "America was dragged . . . etc.
: Can anyone help me? What is the exact phrase, and who said it when?
I don't really think that is has a know origin, it is just a phrase that has been used time and time agian througout history.
