Someone should start a Teddy Roosevelt Appreciation Thread - give a thread to a badass president instead of lame ones.

Teddy was pretty badass.  Also a racist, though.  Then again, considering the times, most white people were racist then.  Come to think of it, looking to polls, it seems like most white people are racist today, too.

I think it's more accurate to say that most white people are not racist, but are not so opposed to racists as to avoid consorting with them.

Good idea, we need a more positive thread in here. Racism aside.

Thank you for volunteering!

Thank you!

So, today's Teddy Roosevelt fact:

Most people know about his Bull Moose Party, and how he led the Rough Riders in a charge up San Juan Hill. But far fewer people know about the time when he teamed up with Thomas Edison's ghost to steal a time machine from H.G. Wells and use it to prevent Hitler's clone from conquering the Martians.

Speaking of the 'bully pulpit' - Teddy's the one that originated the phrase.  At the time, the word 'bully' had a far different connotation, and rather than meaning 'using ones office to browbeat others', the phrase meant 'Gee, this is a really great way for me to get the word out to a lot of people!'
