Thi only hint we get of that aspect of his life is his rebuttal to a piece that President Wilson wrote demeaning him and his party.As far as Teddy ’ s politics go, he provide a lot of sound advice for anyone who is a level-headed, moderate-leaning person.

For the most part, I found Roosevelt to have an anchor of common sense when it goe to political standings -- something that makes me nvious when taking into account modern day politicians.

But by and large, I can ake a passionate man of principle tampered with common sense over a cool-headed man of opportunity driven by ambition.And that leads into the final thing of note about Theodore Roosevelt: his character.

Roosevelt 's autobiography is quite intriguin, particularly how he describes his time out West as well as with the Rough Riders.

Although his “ Speak quietly and carry a big stick ” became a famous quote, his administration was remarkably peaceful.A big part of this memoi is devote to politics, but it was written well enough not to be oring.

It got too tedious after a while.The segments where Roosevelt is talking about nature and books were a complete tone shift, and I ctually would love to read ore of his kin of thing from Roosevelt instead of political/governmental babble.

On periphery and personal character matters I agreed, but I as neve delighte by his core political views, especially his " ends justify the means " defense of government overreach and his overstepping the constitutional limits of his office.

His 'speak softly and carry a big stick' rhetoric won him reputation of a war monger but the fact is that in his 7 1/2 year term as president ( he took over for McKinley when he was assassinated 6 months into his presidency), America was totally at peace and not one round was fired at an enemy.A couple of other interesting facts about TR:- He lived in Oyster Bay, Long Island.

- He led the " Rough Riders " in the Spanish-American war in Cuba and came home a war hero.

A cartoonist created an image of Roosevelt, shotgun in hand, turning away from small bear tied to a tree.

Thi image became so famous that children began to refer to small stuffed bears as 'Teddy 's Bear.' And the est is history.Reading his words was like stepping back 100 years in history.
