Looking to channel Theodore Roosevelt, President Obama will deliver an economic speech Tuesday and cite the importance of everyone paying their “fair share.”When he asks the 47% that pay no income taxes to "pay their fair share", then I'll believe he's sincere and not just a socialist in capitalist clothing.
Obama will travel to Osawatomie, Kansas to make the remarks — the site of the progressive Republican Roosevelt’s “New Nationalism” speech in 1910.
The White House confirmed the Roosevelt connection in a press release, stating, “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.”
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 said. “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's obvious that class warfare is the only tool in the Dem toolbox for 2012. They can't run on Obama's record or how he's improved...anything. They can only run on a promise to make the evil rich "pay their fair share".
Of course, if we took every dime the rich have we'd still be short trillions of dollars needed to offset the deficit and national debt. But Obama isn't about solutions that actually fix anything, he's only about demagoguery.
