Faux Pas

Presidential Proclamations


National policy and the global economy often hinge upon the statements of the President of the United States. Despite that incredible power and responsibility, some presidential utterances fail to inspire or motivate:

  • President Lyndon Johnson: “For the first time in history, profits are higher than ever before.”
  • President Dwight D. Eisenhower: “Things have never been more like they are today in history.”
  • President Calvin Coolidge: “When more and more people are thrown out of work, unemployment results.”
  • President George H.W. Bush: “I have opinions of my own — strong opinions — but I don’t always agree with them.”
