    The propaganda bubble that the FDR legacy rests on is awesome. FDR was elected in 1932 and under his ineffective "leadership" the relatively mild recession turned into a freaking bodies in the ditch soup line depression for his next two terms. FDR appointed a former KKK member to the supreme court and the bigot paid him back with a judicial decision that justified incarcerating American citizens and confiscating their property without due process. The FDR administration's racist view of the Japanese led to one of the most notorious examples of negligence in American history when the Japanese killed 3,000 Americans in the Pearl Harbor attack. Thanks to the unrelenting propaganda of the fawning media the Pearl Harbor attack was viewed as some sort of victory. Democrats finally wheeled a virtual corpse around to campaign for his 4th term and true to form the media pretended that FDR was healthy while he was practically comatose due to several strokes. The DNC knew it and dumped the sitting V.P. while he was on vacation and hired a successor. FDR lasted about three months into his 4th term and his medical records disappeared. Almost everything we were taught about the FDR years was political propaganda.

    You were doing fine until you characterized the Great Depression as a "mild recession"
    I stopped reading after that
