At least FDR was preparing our military for war, even in 1938 and 1939. We needed it badly and it was priceless once we become directly involved. Don't get me wrong, I am no big fan of FDR, but at least he got this one BIG responsibility correct. President Obama is doing the opposite.

I’ve explained on many occasions that Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal was bad news for the economy. And the same can be said of Herbert Hoover’s policies, since he also expanded the burden of federal spending, raised tax rates, and increased government intervention.

So when I was specifically asked to take part in a symposium on Barack Obama, Franklin Roosevelt, and the New Deal, I quickly said yes.

I was asked to respond to this...
