    Don't know.

    I believe one thing...every one since (and including) at least Hoover is a big failure - some more then others.
    But not going back to Harding? That's interesting...

    He had nothing to do with it. The longer we sat on the sidelines while the world was at war, the more we benefited.

    I do not attribute our reluctance to go to war on him. That was the American sentiment, and if anything, he pursued policy to alter that opinion.

    Why are you trying to argue with me? I never cited FDR as the greatest. I'd put him in the middle of the field. You can debate someone who cited him as the best, if you'd like.

    It is sad state of affairs that all the “great presidents” are the ones that took us to war or fundamentally changes the political landscape. It’s essentially the squeaky wheel syndrome in disguise.

    Not really, eventually America's involvement in the war was inevitable. The real question is do you want to fight the Nazi's in 1942 when they're bogged down in Stalingrad, or do you want to wait until 1950 when they've already wiped out our allies.

    Eventually, the war would come here. Roosevelt saw the threat that was facism and knew that war would be necessary. Either we could wait for it to come to us, or fight on our terms.

    who says we are arguing?

    You posted "FDR was a failure?".

    I replied with my opinion that he was the worst president in our history.

    I think calling him the worst in a bit of hackery on your part.

    FDR had nothing to do with our ability to fight fascism. We were on the most sound economic platform due to our late entry into the war, and have always been war capable.

    It's my honest opinion. he was an absolute disaster, and the damage he caused is still causing ripple effects.
