  •  I completely contested your point (0+ / 0-)

    and in full and directly.

    You asserted that ordinary people's love of FDR is why we use that one quote which is unrepresentative of his practice.
    Rebutted in my last paragraph above.

    ... that progressives are looking through rose colored glasses at FDR
    Rebutted in previous comment, as it was policy and rhetoric we are focused on

    ...he didn't fight fiercely for people, Implying that he didn't advance peoples situation when the voter turnout in 3 elections, including blacks and women, confirms they felt he did.

    If you can't address the rebuttals to your own plainly stated points, ... claiming I'm moving goal posts might make it so you don't have to formally cede the points, but it doesn't change what you wrote and what I wrote in response. Anyone can read the thread.

    •  we're going to disagree then (0+ / 0-)

      because contesting the point had nothing to do with much of your rebuttal and in point of fact the policies of FDR especailly the ones that were not progressive is exactly what I was talking about that you are now ignoring

      You're right anyone can read the thread and before this devolves I choose to leave it here.

        constant.

        BO progressive policies: Few and intermittent.

        FDR rhetoric and action against our enemies in finance, and for people needing work: Strong and Unrelenting

        BO rhetoric and action against our enemies in finance, and for people needing work: Light and Sporadic

        I don't see how that's arguable.
