    Funny how political ideologues whine and criticize FDR 80 or 90 years after his era, but the folks who lived during that period and era kept electing him over and over. He was truly a beloved President.

    Coolidge and Hoover gave Republicans 12 years of Presidential control. The result was obscene wealth for a small percentage of the richest Americans and destitution and starvation for the poor and working class along with rhe worst depression in history. And the depression went global causing fascism and authoritarian dictatorships in Europe which eventually led to WWII.

    You forgot Harding, one of the worst Presidents in history and the most like Trump in his personal failings

    So was Saddam Hussein, I guess. He was re-elected by wide margins.

    Oh, great, now we are comparing Sadam era Iraq elections to American elections of the 1930's and 40's. Because Iraq during rhe 1980's and 90's was just like America in rhe 1930's and 49's.

    You set the standard. I just pointed out another example. Need some more? Or are you starting to get the idea of why we had to amend the Constitution after the fucking scumbag fdr?
