Why Osawatomie? Theodore Roosevelt delivered a speech there in 1910 and President Obama likes to identify with Teddy when he is not identifying with Ronald Reagan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman and Abraham Lincoln.
Don't Kansans have a sense of humor? If there was a sign that said, "I knew Teddy Roosevelt. Teddy Roosevelt was a friend of mine and you're no Teddy Roosevelt," I didn't see it.
