Posted on 04/09/2013 6:44:25 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Having grown up in a family where the term progressive was not used by Republicans as a pejorative to describe their political opponents, Theodore Roosevelt IV tells Newsmax TV that he does not necessarily see todays GOP spinning off a third party any time soon.
Our familys been sort of kind of like a third party for a long time, Roosevelt acknowledged in an exclusive interview on Tuesday. Goes back to 1912. Weve been waiting a long time. Im not sure I see a third party emerging in the near future.
Roosevelt, the great grandson of President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, said that todays Republican Party may, however, want to take a pragmatic look at itself.

I would not bet on that.
Well, I had been a Republican all my life and they spun me off. I’m glad to be gone.
If they keep moving to the left, and leaving some of us behind each time, then there will be one.
Wow, CC! Is there a link to your post? I’ve never seen that before. Was it a rough draft?
I don’t remember the link but It shouldn’t be too hard to find with a search of Charles Davenport + Teddy Roosevelt + Eugenics.
Ditto to what you said.
The spin off is getting close. The GOP no longer represents a Constitutional conservative America and bend to liberal ideals constantly.
They don’t really have any say in the matter. And they will become the third party when it happens.
Teddy was a big fan of breeding the “right kind” of society.
I can see that.
I’m glad that idea didn’t really “catch on” here... but the flip-side is that abortion has.
“Theodore Roosevelt IV: GOP Wont Spin Off Third Party Any Time Soon”
I can’t disagree with TR IV.
Try organizing three or more conservatives to show up and protest a sidewalk tax at a local village council meeting. It won’t happen. Conservatives are more interested in barbecuing ribs, remodeling the kitchen or worshipping mammon.
Conservatives don’t give a flip about their homes, property or children. All they care about is socking away mammon money.
If they did indeed care about their children, they would drag their fat, useless asses out of their homes and show up at schoolboard meetings to throw commies out of school classrooms, attend county board meetings to protect their property rights and elect constitutional sheriffs in their counties to stand up to the fascist federal syndicate.
But that would require ignoring their false god mammon and building a future for their children.
Wow... What a lightweight.
Technically, the guy is Theodore Roosevelt V.
President Roosevelt was a “Jr.” His son who died during WWII (and won the Medal of Honor for his actions on Utah Beach on D-Day) was III and his grandson would be IV. Since the gentleman referenced in the article is President Roosevelt’s great grandson, that would make him number 5, not 4.
However ... President Roosevelt took the suffix “Sr.”, as inaccurate as it might be, following the birth of the son who bore his name.
However, James Buchanan IX says that the GOP will eventually go way like the Whigs...
