    How did he make it worse? Specifics please...

    He created internment camps for Japanese Americans.
    Yes he did which is awful.


    But the worst thing of all, is he doomed our future.
    Oh god.. Howd he do this?

    We will eventually go belly up, and he will be the primary cause.
    Yes a president over 50 years ago. Its his fault

    His fundamental shift in what the federal government has the power do to is directly tied to the lobbyist business we have today,
    How so?

    is the cause of the 15 trillion dollar debt,
    Yes FDR added 15 trillion dollars to the debt!

    our changed view on foreign policy,
    He was an anti imperialist?

    and the bitter divide we see in political discussion today.

    worst.president.ever.
    Dear god.. It seems your blamming a lot of things on FDR with no reason and no factual information to back this up. I kinda think your pulling **** out of your ass.

    you know-when someone who proclaims to be a DemSocialist also proclaims FDR to be a great president, that pretty well proves to all of us who detest the stench of socialism -that FDR was one hell of a turd

    I think its a bad question. You cant judge presidents without considering the era. Clinton was/is a dirtbag personally but was brilliant at working WITH the opposition party to achieve great results. Nixon inherited the Johnson debacle. Reagan inherited the Carter nightmare. Roosevelt served as an extraordinary leader during a brutal time. Washington led the country through its genesis. Lincoln balanced north, south, politicians, and our most horrible era as a people. No way to say how any of them would have handled the crisis and era the other faced.

    I can tell you that as bad as I despise Obama I certainly dont envy him the job.

    There's not a lot of competition yet. So actually, he's the best in this century.

    I think the New Deal was mostly positive, but the Roosevelt Administration did do some very stupid things. For example, the NRA's efforts to fix prices are widely regarded as a failure.

    I wonder... What did he "screw up"?
    Economically that is?
    And i know you might say "taxes were too high". That is a opinion and didnt cause anything to be "screwed up"

    And his "incompetence" lead to the situation in Eastern Europe? How so? Because you do realize that he was not around to see VE day right?

    The massive failure in Yalta-look it up-its in most objective history books. FDR was senile and Stalin took advantage of that.

    The new deal blew away the boundaries on the federal government-wonder why we have a huge deficit today?
