Theodore Roosevelt Endorses Sarah Palin

Those of you who know me somewhat know that I have a great affection for Theodore Roosevelt. A great hunter, a great historian, a great true conservationist, a great warrior, and a great man. I am so proud that we finally have a candidate now that I think would make him smile. Someone who is a great person ahead of being a great politician. Someone who has worked with their hands and enjoyed it. Someone who entered political life not as a means to rid themselves of work and sweat. Someone with the nerve to stand up to those in their own party and the wisdom to welcome in those not in their party. Someone with the fortitude to enter the greatest wilderness our country has and hunt among animals that can hunt you. I know Teddy is smiling from ear to ear. His words of the past would endorse such a candidate.



No man can do both effective and decent work in public life unless he is a practical politician on the one hand, and a sturdy believer in Sunday-school politics on the other. He must always strive manfully for the best, and yet, like Abraham Lincoln, must often resign himself to accept the best possible.
– Theodore Roosevelt

One of the fundamental necessities in a representative government such as ours is to make certain that the men to whom the people delegate their power shall serve the people by whom they are elected, and not the special interests. I believe that every national officer, elected or appointed, should be forbidden to perform any service or receive any compensation, directly or indirectly, from interstate corporations; and a similar provision could not fail to be useful within the States.
– Theodore Roosevelt

Success, the real success, does not depend upon the position you hold but upon how you carry yourself in that position.
– Theodore Roosevelt

The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer.
– Theodore Roosevelt

The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
– Theodore Roosevelt

I am as strong as a bull moose. You may use me as you will.
- Theodore Roosevelt

I keep my good health by having a very bad temper, kept under good control.
– Theodore Roosevelt

I wish to preach not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life.
– Theodore Roosevelt

It is impossible to win the great prizes of life without running risks, and the greatest of all prizes are those connected with the home.
– Theodore Roosevelt

Nice pic! I'll bet TR would be happy with Paling!

Oops. I mean, "Palin."

I wish that Sarah Palin were the Republican nominee for President (no VP). I really like her!

Great post, and I know that TR would indeed find a soul mate in Palin.

McCain had a stroke of genius when he chose her for his running mate.

AOW -- I posted this comment over at Z's earlier but it speaks to what you just wrote:

The true BRILLIANCE of this pick is that the other side is just as happy as we are. This pick has completely lulled them into thinking that they now have an advantage. They do not realize that putting the debate of experience front and center is going to work for us every single time. And they have COMPLETELY underestimated this woman and the powerful ideas and common sense she is going to bring to the table by being no respecter of persons or party. They see her as an attempt to "steal" away disenfranchised female voters from Hillary when the truth is that she is a BOLD & POWERFUL statement to say that Hillary is NOT the only kind of woman in America. There are women in America, strong women - smart women - beautiful women (in the true sense of the word), who are beacons of conservative thought and deed. They are fierce protectors of family and country. They are thinkers and bloggers and voters (like Z the blog goddess). She is not the "substitute" for Hillary, she is SO MUCH MORE than Hillary and twice as strong because of her values and conservative ideals. I sure hope they continue to sell her short because it will only make the contrast easier to see and the light all that much brighter against the darkness of liberal thought.

Those are some great quotes. I've got a feeling I'll be back to steal a few of them to use in the not so distant future.

Steal away Farmer!

Cool post, Jason.
I get happier and happier the more I learn about Mrs. Palin.

I notice the news media seems to hate her. Fox had some old bitch from the Democratic Party on last night, and she said "well, she may have the same parts as Hillary but she's no Hillary." Tacky people.

ditto that, teddy.

Sara Palin didn't ride her husband's coat tails into politics. She is self-made and independent, in addition to raising a family.

Sara Pallin is no Hillary Clinton.
