"Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake there would have been a fight." --Vice President Thomas Marshall
The quote above inspired this picture. Teddy Roosevelt was the most awesome president we've ever had. What made him such a tremendous badass?
-Was an explorer.
-Was a cattle rancher.
-Was a deputy sheriff.
-Formed the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, better known as the Rough Riders.
-The Rough Riders' charge up San Juan Hill.
-Carried a pistol around in the White House at all times.
-Had a pet bear.
-Had a pet lion.
-Was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 2001, making him the only president to recieve it.
-Was the first U.S. president to study judo.
And, of course...
-Delivered a 90-minute speech after being shot in the chest, and carried the bullet inside him until he died seven years later of an unrelated illness. His statement to the audience regarding the attempt: "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."
When Teddy Roosevelt rises from the grave, we are all fucked.
