    a damn..I though "chant" only refers to stuff like the people shout during football machtes or similar...that what you are talking about is called "Chorus" here. (And I was handicapped by being Lutheran *g*)

    Wrong on the actor and the historian saint.

    This one is too vague I think...the answer is The Naval War of 1812.

    New Question:Who did Teddy consider"Perhaps the most incapable Executive that ever filled the presidential chair....."?

    Ok fine,here's the quote in its' entirety "Perhaps the most incapable Executive that ever filled the presidential chair......it would be difficult to imagine a man less fit to guide the state with honor and safety through the stormy times that marked the opening of the present century" 19th century that is....

    I'll give it to you Tarek because I'm confident you'll find it.It was Thomas Jefferson.....Teddy was incensed at the shape TJ and Madison left the American Navy in.He felt that witha strong Navy the War of 1812 might not have even had to be fought.Your question bud.
