Rethinking FDR

I know I have approched this subject before but I am still amazed how poor a job history textbooks teach the true legacy of FDR. It is almost as if criticizing the New Deal is un-American. Apparently FDR not only ended the depression but provided hope to all americans.

Well, here is a website that really sets the record straight. I have not fully explored the entire site but here is a very interesting article. Some very interesting comments about Joseph McCarthy are made. One which blames McCarthy for a lot of Roosevelt's success. - Interesting
