Who is your favorite U.S. President?
We don’t need to go 8th grade essay format on this one, I’m just curious to know.
Although I don’t necessarily agree with all of his economic policies, mine is Theodore Roosevelt.
Some quick points about ‘ol Teddy:
- 26th President of the U.S.
- Medal of Honor winner
- Leader of the ‘Rough Riders’
- Nobel Peace Prize winner
- Advocate for the ‘little guy’
One time, as he was campaigning in Wisconsin, Roosevelt was shot while standing at the podium delivering a speech. Here’s how he responded,
“Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.”
He then proceeded to deliver the speech. 90 minutes later, he went to the hospital.
His motto: “Speek softly. Carry a big stick.” <- Love it.
Briefly, tell me who your favorite president is. Please leave your reply in the comments below.
