Obama has used FDR's playbook from day one. FDR taxed the rich and caused a 2nd recession in the process - but he got reelected for putting it to the "evil" capitalists. Demonize your enemies and support your friends. FDR and the other early "progressives" praised Hitler and Mussolini - until that game proved unwieldy. O's doing the same thing with the Muslim extremists. FDR used WWII to deflect attention from his failed economic policies, but still failed to save millions of Jews from the gas chambers. The Middle East is setting up to become WWIII - and O has already said he'd side with the Muslims against Israel.
