"Square Deal, New Deal, Fair Deal, Big Fucking Deal"
I'm not usually a big fan of Politico, but Ben Smith has got the right idea.

RT @benpolitico: I kind of like Big F-ing Deal as successor to Square Deal, New Deal, New Frontier

2. I kinda sort think its shameful
I mean, the underlying philosophy driving the reform contradicts much of what the New Deal was built upon.

Im sure people expect that from me, and discount it just as quick.

3. Ezra Klein twittered that Ben Smith
In any case, comparing this grotesque corporatist new law to the progressive Square and New Deals is an insult to the memory of great presidents like TR and FDR -- not to mention our intelligence.
