Theodore Roosevelt

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and
servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

-- Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President (1858-1919)

It's kinda interesting that this comes from Teddy rather than Franklin. My impression of Teddy is based fully on his roughrider days -- his military history.

I wonder what the context is of this quote -- if it's over a domestic issue or not -- because it would surprise me to find a military man expressing approval of disagreeing with a war-time president.
