David Gergen was the kindest boss I ever had. He was in charge of me for most of the time I toiled happily as a speechwriter for Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford in 1973 and 1974.

Intelligent, witty, a loving and caring man. I still run into him from time to time at lush watering spots. Still always a man to be admired.

That’s why I was surprised recently to read that Dave had said that Mr. Trump’s first 100 days were the worst of any president ever.

Really, Dave ? Worse than Lincoln’s first 100 days? When 11 southern states seceded and the War Between the States that eventually cost 600,000 lives began? Worse than when Lincoln arrested most of the Maryland legislature to keep them from voting to secede? Ben Stein asks in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
