Every argument that he extended the Depression has been debunked by economists.<quoted text>
I think fair minded people today would say FDR's image has been severely tarnished, of course that would never be taught in our public schools and rarely in universities. It's easily argued that his policies extended the great depression and that he goaded Japan into attacking us. Also a rumor he had advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor and did nothing. He certainly set the welfare state into motion.
Fact is, Republiclown demands that he cut back on spending caused the economy to slip back into recession in 1937.
It had nothing to do with Roosevelt but that he caved in to the Senate Republiclowns.
I'm sure you don't want to get into the right wing attempt to field an Army to overthrow Roosevelt.
Gen. Smedley Butler ring any bells in sockpuppet world??
It proved that austerity during an economic crisis is stupid, something that is lost on today's Republiclowns, as well.
