Many historians have called Franklin D. Roosevelt one of the greatest Presidents of the 20th Century. In 1933, FDR stepped into office and assumed responsibility for fixing the biggest economic mess in United States history—the Great Depression. His radical, untested and experimental New Deal programs offered hope to the citizens who had overwhelmingly voted him into office but frightened many rich and powerful people. The 1930s was the era of dictators and demagogues—from Adolph Hitler to Huey Long. FDR was a man of this time. Immediately, he declared a State of Emergency and issued Executive Orders or edicts, with the goal of reducing poverty, unemployment, and fear. He declared war on the failing economy. Many, at the time, thought the U.S.A. should become a fascist state—others wanted Communism. Walking the line in this tumultuous political environment was a challenge for the new president both figuratively and physically, for he was also the first President whose legs were totally paralyzed.
FDR survived an assassination attempt just two weeks before his Inauguration. In 1934 the attacks continued. The survival of his presidency was not guaranteed. By the end of 1934, one conspiratorial attempt to take over his government had been exposed by Congressional investigation. Led by well-known zealous politicians and wealthy business interests, this plot to seize the White House might have succeeded if not for the courageous efforts of the rogue hero, General Smedley Butler, who blew the whistle on treason. Was this the only attempt? Or was the beloved President always only inches away from disaster?
