On the Fact that FDR Won Four Elections and this Being Submitted as Evidence of Him Being a Great President

Roosevelt bought those last three elections and anybody with even a scant knowledge of history knows it. The man pumped millions (back when a million was a lot of cash) of New Deal dollars into the purple states (this, while practically ignoring the red and even the blue states) and in almost every instance it was enough to push him over the finish-line. I mean, yeah, you gotta give some some credit (I guess) for political astuteness and being Machiavellian about it but that isn't the same as being a great President and Roosevelt plainly wasn't, in my estimation (my criteria being peace, prosperity, and liberty).......Oh, and, yeah, the war helped.
