You can't have it both ways, you guys!

Was FDR a good conservative or a dangerous liberal?

Steve Benen of the Washington Note:
So, as far as conservatives are concerned, FDR was both an ineffective liberal who made the crisis worse in the 1930s and an effective conservative who helped address the crisis with conservative ideas. The New Deal failed because it was liberal and it succeeded because it was conservative.

Good to know.
