What would Teddy R. think of President Trump, I wonder?


I was literally just about to type that Teddy R. is probably most like Trump of all the Presidents. But they would fucking hate each other, for sure lol.

You put that on your facebook page op?

Haha. Very astute question. I'm currently out of town on a training course for two weeks. My son is trying out for rep hockey and I'm not there to support him. It's been tough and I feel guilty. 

I'm living alone and missing my family. This was a quote one of the presenters used today and I thought it was awesome. 

Fuck cowards and armchair quarterbacks.

For what it's worth I'm typically the guy in the arena. Figuratively speaking.  

If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best!

That quote is kind of stupid. The "man in the arena" shouldn't care what the critic has to say if everything else in the quote is true. Thus, the quote is pointless.

This quote isn't about playing a game, FYI.

Great quote.

It's not a quote to a critic from the man in the arena.

It's to a critic from fellow outsider who could be also a critic, but chooses not to because he realizes the true worth of the man in the arena.

Might wanna know what you're talking about before labeling things / others as "stupid".

I have that same quote, hanging on the wall next to my speed bag.

This. 


At no point does it suggest the man in the arena cares.

The op's quote is the bro equivalent of a Marilyn Monroe inspirational quote.

I am currently reading The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris.

Big fan of Teddy

Teddy would be disgusted by Trump

"To my mind, a coward is the only thing meaner than a liar."

President Bonespurs would shit himself if he were face to face with TR

Teddy believed in America first, assimilation of immigrants, English as the primary language also to be learned by the incoming, and not sucking foreign leader dick.

The man in the arena knows his place.

 

That quote is meant for the critics, to let them know of their place.
