Presidential History

Keepin' It Coolidge

|

Cato's Gene Healy pens an appreciation for the do-nothing presidency in the Dallas Morning News.  He writes of the feedback he's received:

I received the greatest angry email of all time. I bet none of you people have ever been called "Warren Harding's fluffer".

I'm jealous.  Much of Healy's piece focused on Calvin Coolidge, the greatest libertarian president this side of Grover Cleveland.  The man allegedly took a three-hour nap every day. 

More push-back on Coolidge's bad rep with historians here and here.  And get your very own "Keeping it Coolidge" t-shirt here.
