Calvin Coolidge was famous for being quiet. His nickname was "Silent Cal".

There is a story that someone sitting next to him at a White House dinner said the him, "Mr. President....tonight I bet I can get you to say more than two words." The President's response was, "You lose.".

Another story: Coolidge came home from church and was asked what the sermon was about. Cal replied, "Sin" .

The questioner asked,"What did the preacher say about sin?"

Coolidge said," He was against it."

Probably Calvin Coolidge, (1923-1929). He was called "Silent Cal" because of his brief speeches, laconic utterances (The business of America is business), and his minimalist approach to government. He was the type of president the people wanted at that time--don't do anything to upset the current economic and social situation in America.

Calvin Coolidge was nicknamed 'Silent Cal'. According to legend, his wife once made him a bet that she could get him to say more than 3 words in one hour. The only 2 words he said were "you lose." But legends aside, the truth about Coolidge is more nuanced. While it is true he was taciturn and not the sort who enjoyed making small talk with strangers, he actually spoke quite a bit and was a very effective politician. He also embraced the new medium of radio, giving speeches on the air, and even joking about his nasal on-air voice.
