Teddy Roosevelt was the youngest President. He became President after the assassination of William McKinley.
He was a rough rider from New York.
He was a distant relative of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even though FDR was a Democrat, Teddy was a Republican. He was a Nationalist.
Even though he was from New York, he loved North Dakota. To him, North Dakota was God’s country. He had a vacation home in North Dakota. It was a place he came to, to go hunting. He loved hunting.
He was in the top ten of the best President. It depends on what polls where he ranks.
You can find his likeness on Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota.
One of the things that you probably didn’t know about him. He was an Environmentalist. Now that is an oxymoron for being a Republican; since those on the Left thinks that Republicans cannot be an environmentalist.
He was also known as a Progressive. Back then Progressive means something totally different than what it does now.
His most famous quote was “Walk softly and carry a big stick.”
With what we know about Teddy Roosevelt, I was wondering what he would think about the oil boom in North Dakota?
What would he thinks about the Keystone pipeline?
I will tell you what I think he would think. First of all he would like the idea of harvesting our resources.
Yet at the same time, he would not approve of the pipeline. He wouldn’t approve of the pipeline going through the badlands of North Dakota.
When the Native Americans were protesting the pipeline being built across their burial ground. I was on their side. It went too far when those on the far left got involved. They took it to the point of being violent.
I also thinks that Teddy would approve of Pres. Trump. He would sees him as a man after his own heart.
