  •  FDR had a lot more support in Congress to pass (0+ / 0-)

    bills and start programs like the WPA to get people working again.

    FDR did not face a Teabagger House and a constant filibustering Senate. Good Grief, I think the Republicans set a record for Filibusters in Obama's first term!

    Granted, it was tough for FDR but he did not face a right wing radical teabagging heavy House.

      a completely different argument.

      While I'm not sure that FDR had an easier job of it, either way that's a completely different argument than whether the recovery in the 1930's was a lot better than the current one.
