If he had gone begging to Congress for money like Bush did for TARP he might have gotten at least some sympathy for his administration. As it was he was considered cold and aloof from the suffering and he felt that the pain and starvation was inseparable from capitalism, a lot like some on this board behave I'm afraid..
    And prior to Hoover, it was Warren Harding that gave us the temporal 'roaring twenties' by deregulating the railroads, banks and other industry which culminated in the very painful depression. FDR, did a very good job of easing its pain, but it was his continual manipulation to involve us in the second WW that really put everybody back to work and ended the depression.

That's childish and petty, and it serves no purpose so why bother?
    Did FDR blame Hoover for the Great Depression? No, he got busy fixing the problem by putting men to work who wanted jobs, and they thanked him for that, and we are still enjoying the benefits of his vision today. So who is considered one of the Great Presidents of the 20th Century? Just saying....
    FDR did not "fix" the problems of the great depression. His measures prevented solution. FDR's vision (a socialist Utopia) undid the Revolution of 1776.

    Now back to defeating Islamofascists abroad and their supporters among us.

    He was president during a great conflict and died in office. I suppose that makes one great.

He gave them jobs, but more than that he gave them hope that things would get better, and they needed to hear those words, and they trusted him. They said it was hard work, but they always remark on what projects they worked on with pride. How can you not admire someone who inspires that loyalty?
    It was misplaced loyalty.

    Roosevelt's actions failed to accomplish anything beyond getting Roosevelt re-elected. Had it been possible I am sure there would have been Roosevelt Phones...paid for out of Roosevelt's "stash".

    We have strayed from the destruction of the Islamofascists abroad and their supporters at home.

    So WWII was Roosevelt's war of choice?
