Bitter partisan political memes are rarely thesis-level social commentary.

I would've given Chula **** for it but he acknowledged that it's lame so he gets a pass on this one.

If it took a person twelve years to save someone drowning in quicksand would you consider that an achievement too?

"FDR got us out of ... a world war." He died more than three weeks before Germany's surrender. So why exactly are you bestowing FDR with this posthumous achievement award?

wow more than 3 weeks you're right he had nothing to do with it

I'm assuming he's saying FDR helped the US win the war, which really is something you can't deny, though it was Truman who dropped the bomb.

Yes when they had to fight off the guy that wanted to let me drown

And let's not forget that Republican president Herbert Hoover did not get us out of the Great Depression. But that's potentially meaningless just as tiger-repellant rocks are not proof of repelling tigers.

He didn't say "win," he clearly said "got us out of ..."

"FDR helped the US win the war" - The Allies and the resistance and British spies helped the US armed forces to win the war. It wasn't FDR alone.

so tedious

When he has nothing to say he switches to pedantic trolling without even realizing it.
