    FDR sucked horribly other than the WW2 effort.

    FDR was a horrible president. He made the great depression Great. It lasted 8 yrs because he was an elitist, aristocratic prick. He was the first president to make use of the power of broadcast media. He used radio to manipulate a fearful population that was facing hard times in a new age. FDR was an anti-constitutional progressive who loathed the limits placed on the executive branch by the constitution. He was, like many, enthralled by the new academic intellectualism that, inits arrogance, presumed to be smarter and more enlightened than the sum of all human history to that point. That is why they found Marx and Lenin so fascinating. That is why they were so enamored of Stalins Russia. They, like Marx and Lenin, were pretty much wrong about everything. Too bad millions had to die and a bad year had to be turned into a depression...a great depression- before most Americans would stop trusting all the self-described geniuses FDR surrounded himself with.

    You leftists might all know this stuff if you ever bothered to crack a book from time to time.

    If that's luck then I'd hate to see what you consider unlucky.

    Yea__ I'm glad that thousands of Americans could die b/c FDR didn't have the balls to stop Hitler sooner (let alone take the Japs serious for Pearl Harbor).

    I'm also glad that he could fuck up the economic fundamentals of the system for the following generations.

    Not only that__ It's just factually inaccurate. Clinton had plenty of opportunities to flex American might. He always cut and run for the sake of his popularity.
