In an effort to woo Republicans, or something like that, Obama will be touting the “fair share” mentality of the progressive, uber-liberal, trust-busting Teddy Roosevelt, who yes, just happened to be a Republican.
Traveling to Osawatomie, Kansas Tuesday, the site of Roosevelt’s “New Nationalism” speech in 1910, the President will be delivering his typical “pass this bill” economic speech to press his socialist creed of redistributing America’s wealth.
“Just over one hundred years ago, President Teddy Roosevelt came to Osawatomie, Kansas and called for a New Nationalism, where everyone gets a fair chance, a square deal, and an equal opportunity to succeed,” the White House proliferated in a press release, in an obvious attempt to use early 20th-century Republican progressivism to hawk the administration’s Marxist agenda.
Obama will “talk about how he sees this as a make-or-break moment for the middle class and all those working to join it,” the statement further stated. “He’ll lay out the choice we face between a country in which too few do well while too many struggle to get by, and one where we’re all in it together – where everyone engages in fair play, everyone does their fair share, and everyone gets a fair shot.”
Business Insider, describing it as “a huge class warfare speech,” reported:
“The essence of any struggle for healthy liberty has always been, and must always be, to take from some one man or class of men the right to enjoy power, or wealth, or position, or immunity, which has not been earned by service to his or their fellows,” Roosevelt said. “That is what you fought for in the Civil War, and that is what we strive for now.”
Who does Obama think he is kidding? Teddy Roosevelt was only a Republican in name, but in reality, a Rhino version of his envied relative FDR – who is undoubtedly, of course, ambitiously envied by Obama. Teddy was a class warfare statist, just like Obama. Let’s hope the Republican electorate knows at least a hint of American history politics.
