A wonderful vuncular man. The build up for WW II is what got us out of the Great Depression, not his alphabet soup of work programs. However, he gets credit for trying and giving people hope. My main beef with him is how he caved into Stalin's demands for post war Europe. He enslaved 100's of millions of Eastern Europeans to Communism. I have a Polish acquintance that told me, "You'll never see a street named after FDR in my country, we already have four named after Reagan. Reagan did more for freeing us from the yoke of Communism than any other U.S. President"!!!
