    We were already three years into the Great Depression
    FDR saved the country

    Then he saved the world for Democracy

    "We" didn't have to amend the Constitution after FDR, it was the Republicans that were behind the amendment. Apparently the Republicans were fearful that in the future Iraq would elect Saddam. Good move Republicans.

    So you still applaud a president who violated the constitution

    I take it you'd be in agreement if another president threw anti trust laws out the window in order to let corporations collude to drive competition out of business and raise prices

    The only other President who faced national crisis as bad as FDR was Lincoln

    Both did what needed to be done to save the country
    They are considered our two greatest Presidents

    What did Lincoln do that was unconstitutional?

    By definition if a president violates the Constitution he is not a great president because he has violated his oath of office

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    FDR had created some good economic growth, and ideas. With that said he also was a war criminal, for internment of Japanese, for his admin's bombing of Dresden, and for being involved in the Soviet take-over of most of Central Europe in Tehran, and Yalta Conferences.
