DISPATCH: What Would Teddy Do?
Posted on September 24, 2002 by Anita

Is it un-American to criticize a sitting American president during times of war or strife? Theodore Roosevelt -- who stares down from Mount Rushmore alongside George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln -- didn't think so. He said, "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."

Do you have a favorite quote about dissent? Send it to me.
