Theodore Roosevelt by DJ-Bapho Theodore Roosevelt by DJ-Bapho
"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.

Quite a remarkable character.  The comment was made by two term Vice President (under Woodrow Wilson), Thomas Riley Marshall - the greatest wit among our Vice President's.  His best known comment (a delightful put-down of a pompous Senator expounding on the needs of the country to a bored Senate): "What this country really needs is a good five-cent cigar!".  The red-faced Senator sat down.

Fun fact: Roosevelt never died, he just killed death itself so he could do a better job than death. Not long after the Spanish flu ended, killing a few hundred million.

He would be the worst Zombie to have to deal with.

And if Rasputin's there too...

GAME OVER.

If Roosevelt were president today, he would have personally hunted down and killed Osama bin Laden. Also, North Korea and Iran would be collectively shitting themselves.

There's a lot to be said for Washington as well. A general who fights with his own troops is a man to be respected by his friends and feared by his enemies.
