John Tyler was great. In the book "Forgotten Conservatives in American History" by Clyde Wilson& Brion McClanahan (McClanahan highly trustworthy, a professor in Tom Woods' Liberty Classroom) they have a whole chapter on him and another guy in that era. He ticked off his party (The Whigs) left and right cause he wouldnt toe the party line. I grade presidents by era myself, for the Founding Era George Washington for refusing to become a King and Tom Jefferson just from his writings, Then John Tyler Pre Civil War, Post Civil War Grover Cleveland, a veto machine, (also RP's fav Pres and the last good Dem) early 20th Century Calvin Coolidge, cut taxes, cut spending, reduced the national debt, No crazy intenventionist wars or fiscally irresponsible programs. and post WW2 i guess Reagan. He expanded the Federal Gov the least, and did stand up to Communism. Anytime you read that a President "Didnt do anything" Normally means the author didnt like that there was no huge socialist programs or spending, or no warmongering.
