Quote of the Day (Teddy Roosevelt, With a Yardstick for Judging Government by Shutdown)

“We are not to be excused if we fail to hold our public men to a rigid accountability if they fail, in their turn, to see that we have proper legislation and proper administration. No public man worth his salt will be other than glad to be held accountable in that fashion.”– President Theodore Roosevelt, “Speech at the Laying of the Cornerstone of the YMCA Auxiliary Clubhouse,” Vallejo, California, May 14, 1903, in A Compilation of the Messages and Speeches of Theodore Roosevelt, Vol. 1, edited by Alfred Henry Lewis (1906)
