The first White House Press secretary came to be in the year 1929 under the presidency of Herbert Hoover. It took me seconds to Google the information. And this is the Cato Institute we are talking about, they used to be a Libertarian organization that would not be sway by politics but by the facts. Now they followed teh example of the Libertarian Party and have become a echo chamber for the Liberal Democrats.
I stand on the Unincorporated Libertarian tag. Nobody with a modicum of selfrespect should have his/her name associated with Cato or the Libertarian party.
