Conservatives hated Roosevelt and the New Deal. Watch out for revisionist myths as we enter an era that seems to rhyme with, if not repeat, some of the Depression-era conditions.
I don’t pretend to have any great knowledge of the Depression, Roosevelt, or the New Deal. But, at least, I’d be very skeptical of historical analyses of Roosevelt’s policies coming from folks who are philosophically inclined toward maintaining the status quo that suggest that the rich should not have been relieved of some of their money and power. That’s not to say such analyses are necessarily wrong; only that the potential for bias to skew the analysis is very strong.
