Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. (October 27, 1858 - January 6, 1919), also known as T.R. and to the public as Teddy, was the 26th President of the United States (1901-1909). He was the 25th Vice President before becoming President upon the assassination of President William McKinley. At age 42, he was the youngest President to date. Within the Republican Party he was a Progressive reformer who sought to bring his party's conservative ideals into the 20th century. He broke with his friend and appointed successor William Howard Taft and ran as a third-party candidate in 1912 on the Progressive Party ticket.


(Franklin Delano Roosevelt is also an acceptable answer)

Great, Teaser of the Day . It is at 3.06 fun rating right now, and 2.02 difficulty. Lets just play the typical game that I have to: How low can it go down to?

Good Scrambler - but I would have thought that the words that you initially had to unscramble (although linked) would have had something to do with the President???

Thanks.

The V in the first word solved it;and unscrambling words is a good brain descrambler for me

I got halfway there (all the kitchen scrambles, and microwave was a good one!) but then gave up before trying too hard with the president... just didn't ever learn them, being Canadian and all, and so I figured I'd look up a list and save myself the brain power. I probably could've gotten it if I kept at it, since I have heard of the guy, but once I got the letters to say "LOSTROVER" I couldn't keep a straight face anymore.

Great fun! A nice gentle working scrambler that was relaxing, not taxing. Thank you!

I thought it was hard. I worked the anagrams and president together, anagrams being difficult for me ( I didn't even see oven for a while). The length of the name cut out many presidents and I got it from that and what was missing in the anagram letters. That gave me clues to guess the other anagrams but not microwave. All in all challenging but not frustrating. Just right. A good teaser!

GREAT QUIZ!! :

The ov in oven gave me the answer so I didn't bother to figure out the other words. I should have done them anyway, but I don't think I would have gotten microwave.

Funny, how one of the only presidents I know was the answer! Lolz.

i also had it figured out once I had the OV. Not being American, I couldn't name every president but could not think of any others with a V in his name.

I was about to give up when I recognized the theme of the scrambled words. That was a very nice touch. Thank you! I enjoyed this one very much.
