He was the best guy when WW2 broke out , most likely the only guy we had that could diplomatically keep the triple alliance together . Stalin was not real big on Churchill , but he did respect FDR , and at that time , the cooperation was critical . Just Sayin
He got 4 terms for a reason , the people loved him .That was from a generation that was not the modern self entitled one we have now , he must have done something right . Did he do the best thing for the great depression ? probably not , but then again , nobody knew what to do , it had never happened before . Some countries turned to fascism , like Germany and Italy among others ………….but he was good at both war and peace , Churchill was pretty much only good for war , and was soon ousted after it was over . And considering we have not won a war sense …………………..again , he must have done something right .
