Information on the rapper
Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt Jr. was born on October 27th, 1858, in New York City, New York. He was an American politician, author, naturalist, explorer, founder of several national parks, and historian who served as the 26th President of the United States.
He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the Progressive "Bull Moose" Party. He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive Movement, as well as his "cowboy" persona and robust masculinity.
Roosevelt first gained fame as a war hero during the Spanish-American War. He was chosen as William McKinley's running mate in the 1900 US Election due to the death of former vice president Garret Hobart. Following McKinley's assassination by Leon Czolgosz in 1901, Roosevelt was inaugurated president.
As president, Roosevelt intended to preserve many natural resources. He also established peace by ending the Russo-Japanese War, and became the first American to win a Nobel Peace Prize.
In 1908, Roosevelt decided not to run for a second full term, and endorsed his friend, William Howard Taft. However, Roosevelt decided that Taft did not do a very good job, so he ran with the Progressive Party, splitting the Republican vote, and ultimately handing the presidency to Woodrow Wilson.
During his 1912 campaign, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Roosevelt was shot in the chest by John Schrank. Roosevelt survived, due to his steel eye glass case and his thick speech inside his jacket.
One lasting popular legacy of Roosevelt are the stuffed teddy bears named after him following a hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902, when Roosevelt famously refused to shoot a defenseless American black bear.
Roosevelt died of cardiovascular disease at the age of sixty on January 6th, 1919, in Cove Neck, New York. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest presidents ever.
Bully! A challenge! I love competition!
Now, where would I mount the stuffed head of a Winston?
(Ha!) I'm into fitness, digging ditches through an isthmus,
Rough riding down to Cuba like, "What's up, bitches?!"
I keep my rhymes pure like my food and drugs!
I'm an American stud, and you're the British Elmer Fudd!
I mean, for Christ's sake, look at that mug!
At least grow a spruce mustache and cover part of it up!
And let's face it, you're not all that great!
You tossed away lives in Gallipoli like they were scraps off your plate!
Your whole miserable country is the size of one state!
I could see my way through running that without donning my pince-nez!
Don't go toe to toe with me, you bloated, drunk, old man!
Why don't you do-si-do on over to a twelve-step program?
I'll bust a trust fund lush with my American muscles,
So walk softly over here and give my big stick a suckles!
My parents died when they were young, and it was morbid,
But at least they didn't ditch me while they were alive like yours did!
Oh shit! World War too soon?
Well, Teddy's dropping bombs, so you best go hide in your tube!
(Ooh!) You should be ashamed of your military honor!
Everyone knows you're back at home like, "Thank God for Pearl Harbor!"
Don't worry, the US will give you a pass!
Just change your poster to "Keep calm and kiss my cousin's ass!"
A bullet can't stop the Bull Moose!
TR will give WC the full deuce!
