Here's what I've gathered

in mid-1932, unemployment hit its high at 33%.  It decreased slowly except for a rise around 1937ish.  The Depression ended when WWII started in 1939 and demand for war materials helped the US economy.

I have a printed page somewhere detailing US unemployment rates from 1930-1940, but don't ask me where it is.

Generally true, except that the depression didn't end in 1939.

In 1939, the US industrial base was still largely crippled.  There was almost no investment for a decade, and our production capacity was not high.  We were producing precious little war material in 1939, and unemployment was still around 17%.

Roosevelt started working with business leaders in 1939-40 regarding war production, and they told him they'd be unable to produce the material needed with their then-current capacity.  They also said that certain of his policies made it too risky for them to invest in expanding production, and said that he would have to change those policies if they were to make the necessary investment.  Roosevelt changed his policies, and effectively abandoned the class warfare of the New Deal.  It never returned as government policy.

It wasn't until 1941 that the depression really ended, once war production was in full swing.

However, although it didn't change the economic state of the country, the New Deal gave hope and confidence to thousands.  The CCC helped make our National Parks tourist-friendly and gave people jobs when they would have had nothing.  The dams built in the Northwest like Grand Coulee and the Tennessee Valley Authority gave electricity and power to many for the first time.  So the New Deal may not have pulled us out of the Depression, but it was NOT a waste.
It may not have been a waste, but it was not the business of the government to "steal from the rich and give to the poor."   

So you'd rather have millions and millions homeless and starving? Tell me, why do you have a Democratic avatar?

 Washington was actually no party affiliation, so since there's only one on the list I choose:
John Adams

Democratic-Republican
James Monroe ( don't know much either way on this one)

Whigs
William Henry Harrison (stupid f--k, wear a hat! maybe you'll actually live to do something as president rather than being the guy they remember for only living a month in office), and you started Tecumseh's curse, so you're directly responsible for the deaths of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Harding, Roosevelt and Kennedy, you murderer Tongue


Democrat
Franklin Delano Roosevelt


Republican
 Abraham Lincoln
