All I can think of upon reading this hatchet job on FDR is Voltaire's admonition that "the perfect need not be the enemy of the good". It is easy in retrospect to condemn FDR for not fully recognizing the Nazi evil or for not acting more forcefully against it. We will never know whether FDR's inattention was willful or benign and it easy to forget that he had domestic enemies and isolationists who opposed any U.S. involvement in the European wars. Think of LIndbergh and the Bundt movements. When I go now and check out the Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation I fully expect to find a right-wing cracker operation. Who are you going to believe - wingnuts or the real historical record??
