Theodore Roosevelt

William Howard Taft

Woodrow Wilson

Report CardTeddy Roosevelt's famous ''square deal'' was a program based on three ideals- conservation of natural resources, control of corporations, and consumer protection. This also lead to business regulation to help protect consumers and the American economy. Teddy Roosevelt was also very 'in touch with nature' and enjoyed the woods. Environmental conservation was a major issue to Roosevelt, especially the dangers of oil mining and the destruction it causes the land. Roosevelt's foreign policy was summed up by a quote from a native American quote, "speak softly and carry a big stick". His foreign policy was laid out in the Roosevelt corollary which states that America should have dominance in the entire western half of the world and is entitled to it. He openly displayed this belief when dealing iwth the Panama canal, which land was not legally bought. But overall he accomplished many major feats and got America back on its feet after the gilded age.Leadership - A+Organization- AProfessionalism- A Contribution- A+

Report CardDollar diplomacy, which states that America should invest in foreign areas, was a major point in Taft's economic and foreign policy. "Trust busting" was also very important to Taft, making small business more accessible and major companies less of a threat. He busted over 90 trusts in one term in office. Taft also passed many social and government reforms,(such as the Man- Elkins Act) although he took no real initiative while in office and was rather indecisive.

Report CardWilson passed the 19th amendment which finally gave women the right to vote. Within the same ideals, Wilson attacked large concentrations of power to give the average citizen as much freedom as they wanted. To do this, he lowered the tariff, making cheap foreign goods more accessible, broke trusts and high finance as well. Wilson was determined not to get America involved in WWI, but eventually he did feel like American involvement was neccessary. He felt neutrality was best when possible. However Wilson was a bit overly involved with Mexico, making him a bit unprofessional and unorganized. ILeadership- A-Organization- C+ Professionalism-C Contribution-B+
