Bring Back the Square Deal

Obama Administration

I have to say, this warms my heart — President Obama will speak in Osawatomie, Kansas, on Tuesday. Osawatomie is where Theodore Roosevelt delivered his great New Nationalism speech to a group of Civil War veterans in 1910.

“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 release states.

“The President will talk about how he sees this as a make-or-break moment for the middle class and all those working to join it. 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,” it states.

Teddy would agree.
