Obama Stands Up For Liberalism In Kansas Speech
E.J. Dionne argues that President Obama channeled both Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt on Tuesday, in his new column “Obama’s New Square Deal:”
President Obama has decided that he is more likely to win if the election is about big things rather than small ones. He hopes to turn the 2012 campaign from a plebiscite about the current state of the economy into a referendum about the broader progressive tradition that made us a middle-class nation. For the second time, he intends to stake his fate on a battle for the future.
