    He doesn't prefer chaos. He was raised in a muslim family and is obviously unwilling to lift more of a hand against it than he has to.

    Greetings, Misterveritis.

    Perhaps I listened too long to many of our older senior citizens who lived through those dark days, but FDR is remembered by them as almost a God - he gave them hope when they had none. I have the movie "The Grapes of Wrath," and if that was even partially true, it must have been horrible to live through.

    First banks closed and they couldn't get their savings out; then businesses and factories closed their doors because few people had money to spend, so consumer buying came to a standstill. It was almost like a decade of poverty for everyone except the very wealthy.

    The average person had no knowledge of the political end of things, they just knew that everything had done a 180 from the Roaring 20s, and now they were poor. They didn't riot -they were too busy trying to cope with reality with little or no cash. Then they also had to cope with what we call the "dust bowl days," with little or no rain for years, which hurt food producers. Could we do as well if it happened today? For most people, I think probably not.

    On the contrary, FDR's policies single handedly produced the great middle class and the highest standard of living in the world. The more we stray from them the worse we have become.

    Well sure, with a little help from others who would gain from it, not unlike B-43.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    It was horrible for far longer that was necessary. FDR's policies were the reason.

    First banks closed and they couldn't get their savings out; then businesses and factories closed their doors because few people had money to spend, so consumer buying came to a standstill. It was almost like a decade of poverty for everyone except the very wealthy.
    Of course this is not true. It is the myth. It was hard on the roughly 25% who were not working. That is about double today's actual rate of unemployment. And FDR's policies kept the poor poor much as the Federal policies today keep our poor poor.

    The average person had no knowledge of the political end of things, they just knew that everything had done a 180 from the Roaring 20s, and now they were poor.

    FDR violated the Constitution and should have been impeached. Instead he prolonged the depression with his policies and was lionized. The Effeminate One on the golf course learned his history well. Lie to the people long enough and give them crumbs, use the media to create a myth and the myth will live on for a hundred years.

    It is a clear lie but I can understand how a lazy anti-American poster would not bother to go beyond the lying headline to discover the opposite was true. It took less than two minutes to find the quote and to recognize the lie built into the twisted quote.

    Agreed.

    Whether that is true or not it is clear you have been caught. You cannot be trusted.

    Socialism always looks best in the beginning when there is still plenty of real wealth to plunder. Later on when all we have is the illusion of wealth it begins to lose its luster.

    FDR should have been forced from office. Obama should as well.

    The middle class existed long before FDR.
