Franklin Delano Roosevelt is my favorite President. His solutions to problems were not perfect. But neither is a mass migration of poor people starving and without jobs. I am not so sure that he ever intended his programs to be anything but a temporary solution to help people while long term solutions were implemented.
He faced a great economic crisis, and then a foreign policy crisis. According to General Butler he also faced a crisis at home from people who wanted to maintain a terrible status quo. But he did try to solve the crisis. He did not just watch jobs fly away and homes get foreclosed, and neither will I.
