It's possible that in his 3rd term FDR had been a victim of several strokes and he may have been as mentally incompetent as our current president. The media covered for democrat Woodrow Wilson's debilitating stroke to the point that they wiped the drool off his face and wheeled him out for photo ops pretending that he was fine. It wasn't hard to cover up FDR's mental issues. Democrats were aware that FDR was in bad shape when they ran the virtual corpse for his 4th term but as usual they lied to the public. After FDR died in April of 1945 his medical records disappeared from a locked safe and the media wasn't interested in pursuing the issue.
In Biden's case, the mental deterioration isn't as important, as he didn't author the policies.....the party did.
But FDR was evil.....well before any mental decay: he used the power he had in petty revenge against thise who did what he could not do: be successful in business. He hated capitalism and capitalists.....so the direction the other dictators took was perfect for this wanna-be.
Early on he made his proclivitie known: he demanded a communist and devotee of Russia as vice president.
When warned that the delegates might revolt, Roosevelt made it clear that "they will go for Wallace or I won't run, and you can jolly well tell them so." Party leaders reluctantly capitulated to the president's demand and nominated Wallace, but the convention's mood was so sour that Wallace decided not to make an acceptance speech.

- …historian John Lewis Gaddis has written that “there is Soviet documentation that Wallace was regularly reporting to the Kremlin in 1945 and 1946 while he was in the Truman administration,” and that later, when Truman was considering a secret effort to approach the Soviets, his effort was “blown wide open by Wallace when he was running for president on the Progressive Party ticket” in 1948. This was after Truman fired Wallace for giving an address in Madison Square Garden attacking the Truman administration for excessive anti-Communist zeal.
