"I know Tom is a conservative,...."

Tom Hanks a conservative? That's not the impression I had - I was under the impression he was as liberal as his good buddy Speilberg. You sure about that?

Tom Hanks is a conservative? Not the last time I checked. I thought he was a flaming lib.

Even Bill Clinton is conservative by today’s standards.

For a second, I thought this was about the Democrats and their beloved Jim Crowe laws & segregation.

My GGrandfather, Grannies side, lot a fortune in the Panic of ‘96. On the bright side my Grandfather, Born 1886, hated TR, absolutely loathed the man, taught me politics.

Tom Hanks isn't in Blue Bloods. Tom Selleck is.

I made a mistake, but anybody with two brain cells in a row could figure out what I meant.

I guess we know where that puts you.

What’s the little hat in the center of the circle of laurel branches?

Is that the “hat in the ring?”

Only when forced to be due to political expediency. Remember when he was openly championing gays in the military?

Interesting the boarded-up factories with the broken windows in the top left corner of the banner, “Gone Democratic.” Looks exactly like Detroit today, 50 years Democrat.

It’s called “redefining” Conservatism, an effort that is continually in progress and being aided by the GOP candidate, Mitt Romney.

This poster was shown and appraised on Antiques Roadshow last Monday. It was appraised for $3-4,000.

“Even Bill Clinton is conservative by today’s standards.”

That is one harsh reality.

Oh, okay. I looked at the post, and didn't see a reference to antiques roadshow. Awesome poster. Hard to believe how little things change! I was enthralled when I watched it Monday evening.

Teddy was in favor of a federal personal income tax ~ hardly a conservative position.

At the same time he negotiated the handover of Korea to Japan to keep and use as a slave labor camp (colony).

Teddy had his weak points ~ probably why he couldn't get elected on his own ~

Just a reminder.

Still, all of us agree that it's frequently dangerous to evaluate the past in terms of the present ~ TR maybe one of those cases, but I wouldn't vote for him anyway, nor Romney, nor Obama, nor Bill Clinton, nor LBJ

Ton Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are both anti American scumbags.

Your vote must represent a rather high level endorcment rather than simply the best of the available evils.
