When Theodore Roosevelt accepted the Progressive "Bull Moose" Party's nomination in 1912, he was often criticized for wanting to turn the Presidency into a monarchy or dictatorship by running for a third term. In this political cartoon Theodore Roosevelt is depicted as resting on his accolades as Rough Rider and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, on an island in the West Indies. Roosevelt's bicorne hat and removal to an island suggest comparison to Napoleon's exile to the island of Elba and his subsequent return to power.
