Happy Birthday Calvin Coolidge

A regular Yankee Doodle Dandy (born July 4, 1872) was Calvin Coolidge, 30th president of the US 1923-1929. During his administration:

He cut taxes for the wealthy, resulting in an economic boom and speculation bubble that would blow up right after he left office, resulting in the Great Depression. He also cut immigration, aid for farmers and a bonus for veterans of World War One (this was restored by Congress over his veto).  Although a winner of the GOP nomination almost 86 years ago, he might be a front runner today; the spirituality of Grover Norquist and the charm of Mitt Romney.
