Political Discourse and policy making in the Roosevelt years (1932-1945)
Political discourse during the Roosevelt years refers to how political persuasions were engaged in during 1932 – 1945. The procedures of the political persuasion that Roosevelt adopted had some influence on the American democracy as well as the democracies of other developing democracies in the world. Sprague(13) asserts that “while Roosevelt held a fundamentally international position, he was compelled by the exigencies of local economic concerns as well as congressional politics to take a more nationalist approach to the occurrences in the world.”

There were apparently many constraints on which Roosevelt faced in terms of acting out of the foreign policy of the US. For the US to make an efficient contribution to the international affairs, there was the need of united national opinion and a favorable political climate, in addition to a responsive Congress. Articulating national objectives and connecting them to both the humane and civilized significance, Roosevelt demonstrated an opportunistic political extemporization as exceptional as well as boldness over the Lend-Lease Act and his individual relations with Winston Churchill.
