Hilarious, George. All praise to Silent Cal for his blissful ignorance as the
great economic calamity in this nation's history took shape under his
"leadership." Calvin Coolidge and George W. Bush, both simple men with
simple minds, nearly destroyed the US economy by trusting Big Ol' Wall
Street to do the right thing.
@Irony Guy "...simple minds...Yeah, what we need are really
clever guys like Roosevelt and Obama who have the genius to take a market crash
and turn it into a long decade of pain.Reagan (another supposedly
simple mind) knew what to do and -- more importantly -- what *not* to do with
the 1987 crash. He followed the Coolidge way, and our recovery was fairly quick.
