Rex Tugwell on Herbert Hoover
"When it was all over, I once made a list of New Deal ventures begun during Hoover's years as Secretary of Commerce and then as President.......The New Deal owed much to what he had begun." 1940.......So even Roosevelt's right-hand-man ultimately concluded that Hoover wasn't a laissez-faire capitalist (as asserted by Paul Krugman, Chris Matthews, and other leftist buffoons). Can we PLEASE put this myth to bed once and for all?
