Last quote by Douglas Brinkley

What's unusual about Phoenix is you have an elected official publicly begging the president not to come to his town. Usually a president coming to your town is an economic boom, and it's something all elected officials welcome.feedback

Douglas Brinkley quotes

Apr 13 2017

President Obama constantly reminded us that our own times are not uniquely oppressive. There's a feeling due to the 24-7 news cycle that everything is a crisis mode, when the fact of the matter is, Americans have it better now than ever before.feedback

Apr 06 2017

He sulked at the downstairs bar, muttering cryptic things like, My time has come to die, Dougie, .feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Russia

There's a smell of treason in the air. Imagine if J. Edgar Hoover or any other FBI director would have testified against a sitting president? It would have been a mind-boggling event.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Russia

To be as low as he is in the polls, in the thirties, while the FBI director is on television saying they launched an investigation into your ties with Russia, I don't know how it can get much worse.feedback

Having the president be your commencement speaker is usually winning the big prize, but in the age of Donald Trump in the White House it might be an albatross around the university's neck. 2016 was the nastiest election on record, and we're in the middle of a cultural war. ... So if you give protesters a time that Donald Trump is going to be giving a commencement address the amount of acrimony surrounding it could lose the message, which is that the stars of the day are supposed to be the students who are graduating.feedback

Feb 18 2017

There tends to be kind of an upward mobility, particularly if you are a president who had no major scandals.feedback

Feb 18 2017

You never want to be lower than William Henry Harrison. If you're below Harrison, the thought is that that you really damaged the executive branch during your tenure in office.feedback

Feb 18 2017

Once again the big three are Lincoln, Washington and FDR - as it should be. That Obama came in at number 12 his first time out is quite impressive.feedback

Feb 17 2017

There has never been a kind of holistic jihad against the news media like Trump is executing. Trump is determined to beat and bloody the press whenever he finds himself in a hole, and that's unique. He's trying to show that he's King Kong and the press are little gnats. That has box office appeal to a certain segment of the population.feedback

Feb 16 2017

It was bizarre theater. He turned a presidential press conference into a reality TV show in which he can be the star and browbeat anyone who objects to him with the power of his office.feedback

Feb 01 2017

This is definitely bizarre, rapid-fire presidential policy making. It really is a 'shock and awe' strategy that every day there's a new, radical initiative, and it doesn't give journalists or the public a chance to get a grip on what just happened. I think he feels the 100 days of FDR and Ronald Reagan is passe, that in a speeded-up media environment, he wants to be known in history as having his first 100 hours be revolutionary.feedback

It's like the football player who starts throwing Hail Mary passes on the first down. It's exciting and he might make a touchdown or two, but there's a reason most professional coaches don't do that. In the long run it's a good way to lose the game.feedback

Jan 20 2017

Any time you don't win the popular vote but you win by the Electoral College it makes people come unglued. It angers people that somebody can win the popular vote but you're not president.feedback

Jan 19 2017

He's somebody who brags about it as this is a big event and he's the maestro.feedback

Jan 19 2017

I don't think Trump has a great sense of the history of the White House. When you don't know your history, it's hard to fully respect the traditions. This is not somebody who brags about how many history biographies he's read.feedback
