Hitler in the beginning had a positive view of FDR. He was astounded at how FDR accomplished an almost overnight transformation of the US govt in the first 100 days and that he ignored his opponents and the Costitition. He correctly saw that the New Deal was more Fascist than Bolshevik and that FDR was elevating the govt above all.
Above is a link to an old FR post about the New Deal. A long booklet written in 1938 by Garet Garrett.
“Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern.
But it could not be so embarrassed and all that line was wasted, because, in the first place, it never intended to make that kind of sense, and secondly, it took off from nothing that was implicit in the American scheme. It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technic it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake.
The test came in the first one hundred days.”
