FDR get knocked down again for the complete mess that was the National Industrial Recovery Act and the formation of the National Recovery Administration. The gross unconstitutionality of the act was eventually recognized by the Supreme Court in a unanimous decision, but I think the damage it did to the economy gets overlooked.
