Well said. I fear that BHO is - abetted by the press - poised to repeat FDR's mistakes.

Hoover gets blamed for the Depression, because it was triggered on his watch. But he had it for but one year and FDR had more than eight years to really foul things up. Yet, FDR is warmly remembered as the guy who got us through it - mainly because he made nice speeches (sound familiar?). You are right, too, it was the Japanese (via Pearl Harbor) that took us out of the depression... not any of FDR's socialist programs.
