Excellent article, but did you read the comments?  Don't criticize the Messiah!

Yeah, if WWII hadn't come along it is entirely possible that the great depression would have lasted until the 1960's under Roosevelt's policies. 

I got a question for you kathyP, since you're so boared because of the snow:  Has any other president-elect created an official logo (office of the President-elect) and began interferring with national policy so soon after an election and prior to actually taking office?

not to my knowledge, but since i'm snowed in a bored... smiley  i'll look into it.  research used to be easy.  you'd go to the library and get a pile of books and work your way through the subject.   now you google something and can go of on so many side tracks, it takes forever!  still, i always learn something  grin

on the office logo, i can pretty much give you a NO for an answer.  he's not even the president elect technically until the electoral college votes.  he had his logo going way before that.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2008/12/01/obama-americas-president/

this was the most even handed report i could find.  the others were written by FDR worshipers, and not worth reading.  i am finding more and more comparisons to FDR and obama in both this transition phase and in plans to come.  we can only hope that the comparison is a mistake.  funny what history can do to a persons....history....
