Fighting the Depression

Against Drastic Measures
"We are told by the opposition that we must have a change, that we must have a new deal. It is not the change...to which I object but the proposal to alter the whole foundations of our national life which have been built through generations of testing and struggle." -Herbert Hoover, speech at Madison Square Garden, October 31, 1932

For Drastic Measures
"I have recounted to you in other speeches, and it is a matter of general information, that for at least two years after the Crash, the only efforts made by the[Hoover administration] to cope with the distress of unemployment were to deny its existence."-Franklin D. Roosevelt, campaign address, October 13, 1932

Compare the statements.

I seen nothing in common with these two statements. What am I missing?

    Hoover didn't want change, and Roosevelt demanded change.
