President Obama has been compared with FDR many times. Like Roosevelt, President Obama has come to office at a time of great economic upheaval. Unlike Roosevelt, President Obama and his administration have decided that in order to rescue the economy, it is necessary to bail out the banks financially.
However, Obama is very aware of history and he has taken a page from FDR's book. (Of course, he is being criticised for this as well.) To read more, see: Rescue from the Brink of Economic Collapse.
Many people in the media have been criticising Obama. This is nothing new. They say he has reneged on his campaign promises. But I remember what he actually said. To read more, see: President Obama's Inauguration Day.
