Yes I guess he was criticized quite heavily for his pre-WWII policies.
It's just hard not to have a high opinion of him after WWII.
Haha well, the other Roosevelt basically did a spray and pray tactic. So many of the programs he did were unconstitutional. He really had no clue what he was doing. But at least he was doing something I guess....

I don't know, I think the other Roosevelt could give him a run for his money.
You'll be a politician some day.
