To "Roosevelt that hoe," means to help your woman out of depression by doing something nice for her, as former President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) helped the United States of America out of The Great Depression by providing the depressed and unemployed with his New Deal.
FDR once said, "If you treat people right they will treat you right . . . ninety percent of the time."
Your woman does not need to be literally depressed before you "Roosevelt that hoe." She can just be down, bummed out, bored, sad, or tired. You should "Roosevelt that hoe" on a regular basis whether or not she expresses the need for Roosevelting. However, don't "Over-Roosevelt that hoe" to the point where "Roosevelting that hoe" loses meaning. You need to have a few "Roosevelting ideas" in the back of your head in case times get tough for your woman, and you should save up a few of these for special "Roosevelting occasions."
Ways of "Roosevelting that hoe" include: buying her flowers, getting her chocolates, assuring her that things will change for the better (and making sure they do), writing her a poem, telling her how beautiful she is, surprising her by doing a chore that she is dreading, talking to her about what is stressing her out, hugging her, cooking for her, planning an event that requires her to wear a dress, boosting her confidence about a stressful job by reminding her about her related good qualities and skills, leaving her alone when otherwise you ask her a question, making her feel special by doing something that requires a lot of work or effort without bringing up how much work or effort it required, pointing out little things she does that you like, being on time, not complaining, and, last but not least, trusting her and siding with her even if you have your doubts.
This is not a complete list, and the list needs to be tailored to your woman. As FDR said, "One thing is sure. We have to do something. We have to do the best we know how at the moment . . . . If it doesn't turn out right, we can modify it as we go along."
"My girl is stressed out. I can 'Roosevelt that hoe' by giving her flowers. It won't eliminate her stress, but I think it will help."
