Best Answer

Herbert Hoover is associated with this phrase but there is no evidence that he ever said it.

This was campaign hyperbole used by the Republican Committee and it was printed in several newspapers. I talked to a gentleman at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in Iowa who sent me a copy of the article that appeared in the New York World in October of 1928.
