Colonel Teddy Roosevelt
This is striking portrait of Colonel Teddy Roosevelt. The picture was taken shortly before he left for Cuba for the Spanish American War.
I have mentioned before that I thought that Teddy Roosevelt was the greatest president ever. He was the one guy who really worked for the people. He set up the National Parks, he busted up the giant corporate monopolies that had gotten too powerful. At the same time, he established the United States as a major world military power. Politicians hated him, corporate titans hated him, special interest groups hated him, but he was loved by the people.
I have completely, utterly, totally lost confidence in BOTH the republican and democratic parties. I think it is time to bring back Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose Party!
