    I would submit that JFK and Teddy Roosevelt should be swapped to make the portraits accurate from a practical standpoint.

    That's a little over the top, BC. I mean a mattress? C'mon!

    TR'd be considered a moderate by today's standards, as would JFK. TR's Bull Moose flirtation only spanned two years of his political life, and by the end of his life, he was a Republican again and had become more conservative. The GOP wanted him to run for President in 1920 and he wanted it too, and likely would've won, but he died in late 1919...It'd be like judging Winston Churchill solely by his years in the Labour party, or only judging Reagan by his near 30 (1930s-1962) years as an FDR supporting Democrat.

    Here Reagan is at age 37, promoting Truman for President, promoting Hubert Humphrey for Congress, blasting the Republican Senate of 1946 for what he saw as their failures and their mistreatment of the American people, and saying how the Taft-Hartley Act is a bad thing.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    even Teddy's daughter Alice (who was much more conservative than her dad) got mad when people said he was a liberal and would have agreed with his cousin's polices.

    Those two "paintings" make the "Dogs Playing Poker" look like the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

    Or swap out TR with Coolidge, wearing the green visor, because Cue is not feeling Teddy.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    A pretty good record, actually.
    Well considering Bush II was 21st Century, I guess that excludes him.

    Who are you calling worst of the 20th Century?
