Riggs: Tea Party Wouldn’t Like Teddy

Riggs (re: When Teddy Roosevelt visited UIdaho): TR described today: Turncoat RINO in favor of class warfare against the rich, anti-states rights federalist stealing state lands by making them parks. Showed his weaknesses by negotiatiating a peace between Russia and Japan instead of standing by our allies and choosing sides. Got an undeserved Nobel Prize for this. Stupidly sent his son Kermit to WWl instead of finding a way out for him. Squandered a fortune on a Central American ditch. Probably the foulest Republican to ever live, save for Abraham Lincoln. The End.

Question: Which past Republican presidents would today's Tea Party embrace?
