What are some comparing and contrasting facts on Theodore Roosevelt and Tafts views on presidential power?





I need to write a two page double spaced typed essay on this question from two quotes that are stated in the text book. one quote from Taft and the other from Roosevelt. basically Roosevelt believed that his duty was to do anything the nation was in need or demanded for and Taft believed that a president can only do what the constitutuion allows and not of the public interest.

    Compare — both of Republican party / both married and of high social privilegeContrast — Roosevelt winner of Nobel Peace Prize and most famous quote was “Speak softly and carry a big stick” (by the way he meant an offensive Navy that could strike swiftly)Taft — from your textbook quote you can tell he was a strict “textualist” (like Clarence Thomas on present Supreme Court who oppposes any appication of the literal words of the Constitution’s original meanings by the Founding fathers) . . . he lost the election of 1916 to W. Wilson and Roosevelt his predecessor who felt he had to oppose the Republican standard bearer (that is, Taft)

    .Do yourself a favor: Google “Theodore Roosevelt” and then choose a/the Wikipedia site. Then do the same for “William Howard Taft.”Essentially you are describing the difference between what would be today’s liberal/progressive President (Obama) versus a Ronald Reagan-style President of limited Government, a passive Executive who lets “the free market” do its thing.Taft ignored the clause in the Constitution where it mentions that pesky (pesky, to conservatives) “to promote the general welfare.” Roosevelt and Obama both are consumer-protection guys; Reagan, the Bushes, Ford are the “let Business do its thing” guys, just like Taft.On a side note, Taft was our largest President, at well over 300 pounds. Contrast that with the peripatetic TR, hunting, fishing, hiking everywhere, including in DC’s own Rock Creek Park.TR is known for his “charge up San Juan Hill” in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Taft could barely roll out of his gargantuan bathtub, specialy built for His Hugeness.Also, TR was so incensed at the conservative, stingy, even cruel Republican Party that he broke with them in order to start the Progressive Party (a/k/a Bull Moose Party): that was the BEGINNING of the Health Care Reform that was passed “ONLY” 97 years later in 2010. Makes ya wonder (or me, anyway), “where” the Republicans’ health plan/s have been all that time?You also know, I’m sure, that Taft was later appointed as a Supreme Court justice..
