FDR caused a recession to turn into The Great Depression. Read the book "Americas Great Depression" by Murray Rothbard, one of America's premire economists.
High school/college kids who think they know it all don't really read books, they just read the news and assume they know.
Bush=Hoover in so many ways even with this recent bailout. The Hoover administration had its own version of the TARP (troubled assests relief program) and again like Bush used other Keyensian methods to attempt to fix a recession.
Obama will equal FDR and his socially progressive (socialist if I may) policies will cause another depression in this country.
Economists agree without much disent that FDR and his New Deal did not fix the Great Depression, it did quite the opposite.
He was elected to his first two terms because the nation was in a state of panic and he was a charismatic leader who promised (lied) many great things during his campaigns.
As Goerge W Bush claimed in 2004 (falsely) "You don't change horses in mid stream"
