Nice find. Very true, indeed.

Of course you know a president like T.R., which in some ways we need, would fray the liberal conscience of the press. Force of personality, in an age of political correctness, is a liability. Tragic indeed.

It really isn't shocking. T.R. had a very heavy Classical training.

And yes, very tragic. But risk is the capital of politics. We need someone like him.

Wasn't TR the one who ran as a third party candidate, in order to split the republican vote and allow Wilson to become president, specifically because wilson supported the formation of the federal reserve.

If you mean the Bull Moose party (or the progressive party), then yes. See http://www.highbeam.com/library/docfree.asp?DOCID=1E1:Progrsv&ctrlInfo=Round18%3AMode18c%3ADocG%3AResult&ao=
