Here is something not many people are aware of.


With the Wilson administration coming to an end, Roosevelt began planning for his next run for office. Roosevelt and his associates approached Herbert Hoover about running for the 1920 Democratic presidential nomination, with Roosevelt as his running mate.[89]

Campaign for vice president (1920)

Cox and Roosevelt in Ohio, 1920
Roosevelt's plan to convince Hoover to run for the Democratic nomination fell through after Hoover publicly declared himself to be a Republican, but Roosevelt nonetheless decided to seek the 1920 vice presidential nomination.

Too bad it wasn't 88 years ago. Maybe Stalin wouldn't have been allowed to control half of europe and purge 10 million more people. FDR was a complete disaster, but another example of how leftist media apparatchiks and agitprop can create a cult of personality that feeds a country shit sandwiches and a majority will thank him for stealing their shit in order to give them a fraction of it back with 2 slices of low quality bread.

No question FDR messed up big time with Stalin, particularly at Yalta. He almost did not run in 1940. One wonders what would have happened otherwise.

The Soviet Union was on the brink of falling before the USA and WWII helped bail out UNCLE JOE.

Just 30 million people killed by Stalin...our buddy.

Quite true. I just posted the wiki site for FDR because I found it interesting FDR wanted to be Hoover's VP in 1920.

I was not questioning you posting the Wiki link. FDR is one of the most important people of the 20th century.

We have him to thank for the massive welfare state we now live in,

Because FDR ran and won four times, the nation was ready to accept term limits.

If it had not, we all know who would now be in his fourth term today and indefinitely into the future.

A complicated man in a complicated time in history.

Let us move forward today with more clarity and sharpness of mind, lest we find out own citizens in gulags, even if they are called so in a different language.

What deal do you think FDR could have gotten at Yalta?

FDR ranks up there with Hitler, Mao, and Stalin as one of the worst human beings to ever live. He plunged eastern Europe into 50 years of slavery under communism because he had a man crush on Stalin. He robbed and interned thousands of American citizens in concentration camps because of their race, and he blocked Jewish refugees from the Holocaust entering into the US, turning them around to face certain death in Europe. If there is indeed a Hell, he is in it.

Stalin conquered those countries at great human cost.
How do you propose FDR should have gotten Stalin to give them up?

Ask him nicely?
