Time for a comparison of the two Great White Republican Presidents.
Teddy Roosevelt was a man’s man and a president who flaunted the USA’s emerging military might by sending the United States Navy’s Great White Fleet on a world tour. Sixteen battleships sailed unimpeded into port after port between 1905 and 1907,’’ Teddy let his fleet do his talking. He also won the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating a peace treaty to end a war between Russia and Japan. He was the first American to win a Nobel Prize in anything. Pretty smart guy.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, is officially in charge of the greatest military forces ever assembled on the planet but spends his time screaming and shouting insults and then bragging endlessly about faux accomplishments and his friendship with authoritarian dictators (emphasis on the “Dic”) and gets nothing — absolutely NOTHING in return. Kim’s North Korea still has nukes and missiles, The Saudi Prince still uses us in his proxy war with Yemen. Putin’s forces are still holding eastern Ukraine. China may bankrupt America’s farmers. The list goes on.
So, here’s the bottom line:
Teddy spoke softly and carried a “Big Stick.”
Donny shouts loudly. As for his “Stick,” who knows?
