David Sirota is one of the few progressives that will go on Faux Noise and debate the rightwing nutjobs. This particular clip is interesting in that the wingnuts are blaming FDR for continuing the Depression because of the implementation of his programs that put America back to work.
From Sirota himself on this interview:
I appeared on Fox News to discuss the economic recovery package. As you’ll see, the anchor and the other guest assert that historians agree that Franklin Roosevelt prolonged the Great Depression – and they actually laugh at me when I say that’s a lie.
The wingnuts are losing it folks…they are pushing blatant lies as facts about a President that held office over 50 years ago.
