Author Talks About Mama’s Boy Presidents
Stanford Erickson, author of "Mama's Boy Presidents" (Why Do We Keep Electing Them?) today joined 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' to discuss his book. According to Erickson,
Seven of the last nine presidents of the United States have been Mama's Boys. Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush can be characterized as Daddy's Boys.
In addition Erickson says,
Although Mama's Boys have been among our best presidents, they also have been among the most dictatorial. Their emphasis on a strong federal government , one that tends to mother us, is threatening to undermine what has made this nation extraordinary.
