Watching the President deliver the SOTUA the other night made me think of the following excerpt:
There was once a party that came out against concentration of wealth. They called for regulation of food, drugs, and big corporations. Called for a square deal for the average American. And their robust spokesman, the leader of their party, said this of his countrymen:"There is not in the world a more ignoble character than the mere money-getting American, insensitive to every duty, regardless of principle, bent only on amassing a fortune."
That quote was delivered by Teddy Roosevelt as leader of the Republican Party. Seems pretty similar to the other night, right? At the time, I wondered why Biden was wearing a Panama hat and a moustache, but now I know.
