Teddy Roosevelt

     By this time Teddy Roosevelt is the president of the United States. The outlook does not appear the most encouraging. Mr. Roosevelt is recognized as a sort of a grand stand [sic] player; a sensationalist who poses for popularity. He may be honest and fair enough, but he will lack when it comes to careful forethought; when occasions arrive that should necessitate calling together his cabinet for consultation; when time rather than pace should be taken in disposing of questions of state.
     Teddy Roosevelt is a man of strong impulses. One of those individuals who believes that his own opinions are never worse and oftimes [sic] better than those of other men. It is this kind of a man that might by hasty action involve our country in a great trouble that would be most disastrous in its consequences.
     Let it be hoped that Mr. Roosevelt will remember that no president ever entered upon an undertaking of any national importance without gravely listening to the voice of his cabinet. And this country has had many able men at its head.
