Happy President’s Day! Celebrate as we begin a special Quote/Picture/Video theme week with a focus on obscure presidents.
I can get behind that
I may be president of the United States, but my private life is nobody’s damned business.
-Chester A. Arthur
Arthur was the 21st president. He’s best known for being the namesake of legendary bluesman Howlin’ Wolf, whose real name is Chester Arthur Burnett. Judging by this sassy quote I think I’d have gotten along with him.
So you think you’re cool?
Okay, okay, so choosing a president that’s on Mount Rushmore isn’t exactly obscure. Whatever. Teddy Roosevelt is riding a damn moose.
It was when I was bangin’!
