Is Trump the new Teddy Roosevelt?

by Stephen Beale

"Forget Reagan, Nixon, and Jackson. Trump's real presidential forbearer is Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt — a career politician who sought military service, an avid outdoorsman who hunted elephants and explored the Amazon, and an intellectually curious historian who dabbled in anthropology and zoology — might seem an unlikely model for Trump. But in terms of policy, the parallels are legion." (03/20/17)

    yeah, but can't tell if they think that is a good thing or a bad thing over there at AC.

    One of the few attendant benefits of a Trump presidency is that it presents a marvelous opportunity for libertarianism revisionism to mount a full frontal assault on the American progressive pantheon. Cannot let that go to waste.
