The Best Case for Supporting a Tariff

 

I doubt the veracity of George Pendle’s humorous, but unkind, comment about Millard Fillmore’s views:

 

“His firm support for tariffs, . . . , seems to have been based on a misapprehension that a tariff was a long-legged marsh bird.”

 

Pendle is quoted in: 

THOMAS VINCIGUERRA.  "Why He Gets the Laughs."  The New York Times, Section 4  (Sun., March 18, 2007):  5.

(Note:  ellipsis added.)

 

Pendle’s forthcoming book, is:

Pendle, George.  The Remarkable Millard Fillmore: The Unbelievable Life of a Forgotten President.  Three Rivers Press, 2007.
