Agreed, which is why I pointed out that FDR died almost 75 years ago.

Oh, the New Deal included vast amounts of money for Jewish enterprises such as the Arts in NYC (Playhouses, etc. etc.)...of course, it also helped Americans of all persuasions.
The New Deal also was drafted to specifically exclude blacks in many cases. FDR did this in order to get the support of Southern Democrats in New Deal legislation. It worked, and he did get their support.

We Americans like to tear down people....but who among us could have done as good of a job as FDR? None. We were very lucky he gave his health and life to US. Unlike current Orange, the idea was not self enrichment or such.......

Damned if you do and damned if you don't. No one measures up to a good actor.
Hilarious that you complain that 'We Americans like to tear down people' and in the very next breath tear down the current POTUS. Can't make this stuff up....

Jbgusa, I usually agree with you but neither Stalin or Hitler coming to power had anything to do with Roosevelt. Stalin for instance, had already murdered his way to the top in the 1920s, while Roosevelt was still Governor of New York.

You can make an Monday morning quarterback argument that Roosevelt could have taken the USA into WW2 earlier or stood up to Stalin as the Soviets overran Eastern Europe. But the reality is that both would have been very difficult historically.

Here in the USA, we tend to be incredibly self-centered, possibly because we were isolationist for so long of our history. We tend to think that everything revolves around the USA or what the President says. But the reality is that other nations, especially the greater powers, are making their own decisions everyday.

Ya know....that 90% of voters GOP remark of Craiggirl's went by me.

By the same token, I'd bet that of the 10,000 bigots who went to hear Farrakhan say "Jews are termites," 90% voted for the Democrat.

It's the Democratic party. You must be a Repugican?

Yeah, good question. Jews are no different than any other group - the are diverse and of different opinions. There is no one block Jewish vote anymore than there is a block Christian vote. To think in such terms is ludicrous. I wonder if the Israelis will see fit to throw Bibi out today before he gets them all in some WW3 situation like the evangelicals are hoping for?

Well, Bibi is fighting to stay out of a possible prison term. We'll see how it goes. Will likely be very close.
