    Today whilst walking down Market Street in San Francisco. I passed by a table at which some people were handing out pamphlets. The table was decorated with two posters. One featured a picture of FDR with the subtitle "He Saved America". The other showed a picture of Obama with a Hitler moustache and a subtitle "He Saved Wall St. Banks".

    The members of the group were handing out flyers for a candidate running against Pelosi.

    All of them were young black men - the candidate is from the LaRouche Youth Movement.

    I do not see this as a good sign for the Dems.

    This is true. Further, anyone who claims FDR "saved" America doesn't know history. We have him to thank for many of the Government programs that have been slowly bankrupting the country for years. When you also consider the fact that he served 4 terms and his presidency ceased only because he died in office, he was the closest thing we ever had to a King or Dictator.

    That is exactly how alvin greene won. It is not so much a vote FOR but a vote against. They don't care who it is just so long as its not the party line favorite.

    You want to know how bad it is? The Democrats have nominated a woman who wants to impeach Obama!

    Those Larouche people are getting around, and they make the weirdest people on the right look sane.

    This is malicious neo-Conservative propaganda. Please be specific and site the programs you're referring to.

    FDR's New Deal was responsible for lifting the U.S. out of the Great Depression and initiating the most phenomenal rise to economic supremacy in history -- which lasted until the corporatist puppet bastard, Ronald Reagan, commenced the destruction of the American Middle Class with his union busting and deregulation of the finance industries and major corporations. That sonofabitch is responsible for most of the problems this country is experiencing today.

    The bottom line is it is you who doesn't know history. FDR did save America and it is the Republican Conservatives who are destroying it.

    Why did the depression of 1920-1921 last 2 years while the Great Depression lasted 10+?

    lifting us out of the great depression? No, it made it far worse.

    We were out of the even worse depression of 1920 much faster by cutting spending and taxes.

    FDR wasn't as great as you seem to think. It's not a coincidence that the second he died, we amended the Constitution and installed term limits.
