Paul Dickson talked about his book, Words from the White House: Words and Phrases Coined or Popularized by America’s Presidents. The authors' collection includes Warren G. Harding’s “Founding Fathers,” invoked during his 1920 presidential campaign, Theodore Roosevelt’s use of the word “muckracker” in a 1906 speech critical of specific journalists, and “military-industrial complex,” delivered by President Eisenhower during his final presidential address to the American public in 1961.
