Rev Al, Teddy Roosevelt is on Mt Rushmore because he was the first president to

stand up to the Tycoons and trusts AND he was the loudest voice to preserve the wilderness via establishing national parks...

That is why his visage is on Mt Rushmore.

1. Didn't watch; did he question this?

Recently found a remarkable speech of TR's.

2. They had a panel talking about Mt Rushmore...

And Al was really focusing on TR.

12. +1 Good speech, but it sure doesn't sound like today's Repukes.

13. TR wasn't one of TODAY's repugs OR EVEN

one of yesterday's. Became a Bull Moose, a man with a country but maybe without a party finally.

3. Can you imagine Teddy trying to discuss environmental preservation with today's Republicans?

8. He'd whip out his big stick

but I doubt he'd talk softly.

7. He's on Mount Rushmore because Gutzon Borglum really dug American imperialism

(but then Borglum was also a big fan of the Confederacy, so...)

10. I watched the PBS special about it and was very informed...

He was far out there on the right, but the idea of owning public lands were also championed by Borglum, at least as presented by PBS.

11. There are some great stories surrounding TR

Life in the Amazon Jungle
The Rigorous Life
and so many others like this

He was a one of a kind that America will never see the likes of again.

He was after all the man that walked and carried that big damn stick.



We need another one of these.

BULLMOOSE!!! The Real MOOSE!!!!
