    That's funny!

    Roosevelt was a republican who lost the nomination to Taft so he formed his own progressive party, the bull moose.

    Rats, you beat me to it! :lol:
    Platform of the Bull Moose Party:

    True to Roosevelt's progressive beliefs, the platform of the party called for major reforms including women's suffrage, social welfare assistance for women and children, farm relief, revisions in banking, health insurance in industries, and worker's compensation. The party also wanted an easier method to amend the constitution

    given that rocky and bullwinkle was one of the more political cartoon shows, and a good chunk of it was about the cold war and them fighting boris badinov and natasha fatale... i'm going to bet they were conservatives. ;)

    on the other hand, bullwinkle's partner was a squirell... so he clearly wasn't pro-segregation...

    maybe he *was* a liberal.

    Teddy Roosevelt was absolutely not a conservative, but back in those days the Republicans were more liberal than they are today and the Democrats more conservative than they are today. The two parties have kind of swapped positions on many issues.
