Someone once tried to assassinate Theodore Roosevelt. But, he just laughed and proceeded to give a ninety-minute long speech with the bullet lodged in his lung, where it remained for the rest of his life. He tore up his leg muscles after accidentally being thrown into piranha-infested waters while exploring uncharted Brazil. Numerous times he broke his ribs from falling off horses while doing bad-ass jumps. He destroyed the sight in his left eye in a White House boxing match. He was also good with a sword. He killed a cougar in a knife fight (seriously). And, the only way death could finally get to him was in his sleep on January 6, 1919. Death had to take him sleeping. If Teddy Roosevelt had been awake, then there most assuredly would have been a fight. The United States could use another Teddy Roosevelt as our President. But, they say that there are no real men left in the world. The current leadership choices confirm this.
