Not only unpatriotic and servile

I don’t much admire Theodore Roosevelt, apart from the National Parks thing (which admittedly is a lot), but he said a good thing about our current issues.

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.

From anĀ editorial he wrote for the “Kansas City Star” during World War I…when he was no longer president, of course.
