He Cannot Shoot Off His Mouth

Henry Eliot, letter to his brother T.S. Eliot (September 12, 1935):
The President of this Republic is not free. He cannot, like the humblest citizen, take his ease in his inn, shoot off his mouth, and curse Congress to his heart's content. He has to 'watch his step.'
Hat tip: Ian Jackson.
