Always Trust a Teddy

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
                -Theodore Roosevelt

Great quote.

It was written by Roosevelt in 1918 towards the end of his life. (See full quote here: http://www.theodoreroosevelt.org/life/quotes.htm)

Given the date ("Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star", May 7, 1918) it was probably written in context to his opposition to the Wilson adminstration during the mid-term elections of 1918.
