We could do a lot worse than Calvin Coolidge. When it came to the U.S. economy, he pretty much just let it run itself. The stock market boomed and prosperity spread.
When asked why he never turned down an invitation to any function of any kind, Cal replied, “Well, a man’s got to eat.”
His White House staff was miniscule. Coolidge was a caretaker President and knew his limitations, including a second term, which he turned down in 1928.
We could do a lot worse than Silent Cal and we already have, IMO.
A woman approached President Coolidge and said “My friends bet me I could get you to say more than two words.”
He looked at her and replied “You lose.”.
My FAVORITE “Silent Cal” story.....
He and the First Lady were touring a chicken farm separately - as they often did. When the farmer got embarrassed about a rooster making a big production out of mating a hen the First Lady asked him...
“How many times a day would you say that rooster has his way with a hen?”
“About twenty times a day.” the farmer replied.
“Be sure to tell the President that.” she remarked.
When the President was told, he replied “Every time the same hen?”
“No, every time a different hen.” the farmer answered.
“tell THAT to the First Lady!”.
In behavioral science this is called “the Coolidge effect” where a male will not sexually respond to a presenting female he has already inseminated - but will somehow muster up the gumption to mate with a new female.
