#1 IMO, anybody, in this day and age, who believes it is (or was) possible to make a lasting deal - on any issue - with Arabs, has shit for brains.

#2 FDR was a disaster in nearly every respect. No surprise that he botched this as well.

#3 Some believe the 'free stuff' programs began under FDR. Might explain his achieving a 4th (albeit unfinished) term in office. Others believed in the 1950's and 60's that, had he lived, he'd still have been president.

Similar to Clinton, with the assistance of loyal staff and a fawning media, FDR masked his 'physical' disability.

#4 And, IIRC, when FDR passed away in Georgia, it was another lady at his bed side, not the First Lady.

#5 Yes, he passed away in Warm Springs, GA. The museum and residence are interesting, but not very. The real treat is the Bullock House, now on main street. If you want to beat the 'Baptists to the buffet' on Sunday, you've better get there before 11:30.

Bullock House restaurant.

#6 I think his 4th term had more to do with Americans reluctance to vote out a President during a time of war.
