Who was Coolidge?

Good guy? Bad guy? Didn't do anything? Or was he an unsung hero?

  • For some strange reason President Coolidge has been mostly left out of the history books, and our politicians never speak about him. Gees, I wonder why, could it have anything to do with his cutting spending? We sure would not want that to get out.

  • If memory serves me correct, he was a President, Calvin Coolidge, I only remember a name if we're talking about the same thing.

  • I think he was the most unsung President of all. He was the one who cut taxes and spending that allowed Americans to thrive (roaring 20s)and the country to prosper. People bought houses and cars, had jobs and expendable cash to put into the Country.
    I don't think they teach that in school.........

  • I can see that some folks watched Glen Beck last night. LOL! I just happened to be surfing through the channels and stopped on the show. It was interesting to learn that 'Cool Cal' did so much to cut spending and create growth.

  • Yep that's who I referring too. I didn't say President, cause I assume most would know he was a president.
