Teddy Roosevelt defeated the evil empire of Nicuragua and some mexicans. he also killed a mexican with his bare hands. was he not a better president than Reagan? Reagan never killed a mexican with his bare hands. Reagan cheated When he tried to stop the awesome power of the Nicuraguan empire that, in addition to being ‘ten days marching distance from Texas’, was also evil. Compared to T. Roosevelt Reagan was a complete douchebag.
