    'All talk FDR is'. FDR felt he saved wall street, yet the folks on wall street called him a socialist (even though he ruled out bank nationalization). I don't think FDR was a tool, but many populists at the time thought he wasn't 'tough enough', he was 'merely a tool for wall street'.

    Yes, I call it 'Obamacare' because Obama cares.

      that the right worked for decades to get rid of FDR's programs and regulations.  As Rush said, "Roosevelt is dead.  His policies live on, but we're doing something about that as well."  (again, paraphrasing.)  And, I do think Roosevelt probably did save capitalism, which is probably a good thing.  Capitalism is probably the best system as long as it is regulated and we are all playing by the same rules.
