    Quick, call Glenn Beck, Mitt’s going to praise Teddy Roosevelt

    Quick, call Glenn Beck, Mitt’s going to praise Teddy Roosevelt

    …  and claim that the Republican Party of 2012, not Obama, is the true heir to Roosevelt.

    Via Politico, You, sir, are no Teddy Roosevelt:

    In a speech to be delivered in Bedford, N.H., this evening, Mitt Romney will push back explicitly on Barack Obama’s recent invocation of Teddy Roosevelt in a speech the president used to frame the 2012 campaign in terms of “fairness.” Here’s what Romney will say:

    Just a couple of weeks ago in Kansas, President Obama lectured us about Teddy Roosevelt’s philosophy of government. But he failed to mention the important difference between Teddy Roosevelt and Barack Obama. Roosevelt believed that government should level the playing field to create equal opportunities. President Obama believes that government should create equal outcomes.

    So now Beck, in order to be intellectually consistent with his position on Newt, will declare that he would prefer a Ron Paul third party candidacy over Romney and that any Tea Party supporter who chooses Romney over Obama does no on the basis of race, right?

    And Beck will join Ann Coulter in crashing a plane into the conservative aircraft carrier.

    The rest of us will simply bang our heads against the wall.

    Once again, Republican party = Stupid Party.

    But he failed to mention the important difference between Teddy Roosevelt and Barack Obama.

    Teddy didn’t stage a dramatic retreat from San Juan Hill.

    I enjoy these arguments over former Presidents. Nowhere else in the world do countrymen debate former leaders – they accept it happened – ask a Ugandan about Idi Amin. Americans have this notion that somehow had X president done this that or been another -things would be different.

    Then there is the layer effect of what the world thinks . In the case of This Rooseveldt his actions during WW2 make him a HERO. He is seen as being smarter than the American people (it happens ). We are extremely grateful to this President .

    Plus he did wel for the USA for by entering the war he laid the base for American superiority in many areas.

    You won’t find many critics out here.

    Yep I did not see the Teddy . But what on earth is the problem with Teddy R. He started Yellowstone & introduced Teddy Bears to the world.

    If the guy did any society /financial engineering surely you have had about 100 years to right the ship ?

    By this measure I am going off to complain about Queen Victoria. Actually the guy after her was pissweak & only cared about his tamp collection but we have survived that.
