Where's Teddy Roosevelt And His "Big Stick" When You Need Him?

Obama is hiding under his bed and waiting for the US Congress or the Russians to bail him out on punishing the Syrian government for the use of chemical weapons against unarmed, innocent civilians.

That's vastly different from Teddy Roosevelt's "gunboat diplomacy" and send in the Marines approach to foreign policy problems.

The "constitutional experts" on this forum will have a stroke over Roosevelt's methods, but he did preserve America's freedom and make this the most powerful country on Earth.

Roosevelt was a brave leader, Obama is a politically correct coward.





Teddy Roosevelt and His Big Stick
http://www.campaignforliberty.org/me...his-big-stick/

"President Theodore Roosevelt’s interventionist foreign policy subverted the Constitution and helped transform America into the most powerful nation on Earth."

"Describing his foreign policy, Roosevelt quoted a West African proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick." As president, Roosevelt used "big stick diplomacy" to seize unprecedented executive power in handling international affairs."

"Roosevelt adhered to the Progressive concept that government should be used to help the needy and combat societal injustice. This, combined with an underlying American sense of manifest destiny, influenced Roosevelt’s attitude toward foreign relations. This attitude led to the perception that any foreign country that did not embrace American views on freedom and democracy was a potential threat to U.S. national security."

Teddy was a progressive, but he was pretty good on foreign policy and he definitely wasn't a Casper Milquetoast.

TR was as much a Republican as was Arne Carlson.

Just because you CARRY a big stick, there is no need to swing it at every mosquito that comes along.

He and Woodrow Wilson were two of the most progressive presidents, until the current occupant came along.

+1000. Somebody gets it. Both were utopian world improvers and probably did as much as anyone to destroy our constitutional form of governance.

Agree or disagree with Teddy. You have to admire his 2 brass ones.

Subverting the Constitution was (is) a good thing?

And that's what's missing from American leadership today.

Teddy Roosevelt's response controlled the event.
Obama let's the event control his response.

What if, in one particular event, the constitution becomes a hindrance and it's imposed limitations are detrimental to national security?

I won't have to twist anything around. You are a dangerously schizophrenic human being.

That would actually be one of those slippery slopes.

Before you have a friggin orgasm, remember I'm asking a question, not making a statement.l

Can you answer the question?

Which has a higher priority, national security or following the constitution?

Liberty and freedom take precedence over anything and everything else.

Besides, the NSA monitoring my iPhone right now isn't keeping anyone safe from anything.

Remember what ol Ben Franklin said.

I don't take kindly to people who say I have too much freedom.

Teddy and every Roosevelt since him are not quite what the Founders had in mind of serving the People or even good care takers of the Republic. SJ 40

Mr. Roosevelt is the Tom Sawyer of the political world of the twentieth century; always showing off; always hunting for a chance to show off; in his frenzied imagination the Great Republic is a vast Barnum circus with him for a clown and the whole world for audience; he would go to Halifax for half a chance to show off and he would go to hell for a whole one.
