: I can see you like the RR. Fine, shame though that he didnt really decrease taxes and regulations that much, and that he slipped some silly military projects a few extra dollar bills which would have been better shaved off productive americans.

Didn't shave taxes enough, that's for sure, and didn't eliminate enough regulations.

: If he gets points its that he was a) better than Carter, b) better than Clinton (easy one I guess) and c) more fun than Bush (also easy).

: Presidents are fun.

: "Although a butt of jokes by the anointed, Coolidge was the last President of the Century who was within shouting distance of exercising truly responsible and Constitutional government. He knew what his job was supposed to be and said so in plain and direct language -- rarely quoted by the historians who despise his Jeffersonian sense of government and his Calvinist sense of morality"

: "Although still ranking high in the estimation of most American historians, Wilson was a fool, a bigot, and a failure. The first Southerner (and only the second Democrat) elected President since the Civil War, Wilson immediately set out, purging black postmasters, to bring Southern Segregationism into the Federal government"

Uhh, yeah, applying present day standards to historical figures is always good for a couple of yuks.
