Famous quotes containing the word taft:

    We should have an army so organized and so officered as to be capable in time of emergency, in cooperation with the National Militia, and under the provision of a proper national volunteer law, rapidly to expand into a force sufficient to resist all probable invasion from abroad and to furnish a respectable expeditionary force if necessary in the maintenance of our traditional American policy which bears the name of President Monroe.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    If I am defeated for the next nomination, I think it will be by [Charles Evans] Hughes. And I don’t think he will allow his name to be used unless he really feels that I have no chance to win. I do not think Theodore Roosevelt will allow his name to come before the convention.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    I think we will live through his term, Archie, and I’ll tell you something, old man, if they don’t stop hammering me, first Bryan for not enforcing the Anti-Trust Law and Wall Street for enforcing it, they may succeed in electing me to another term whether I want it or not.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
