"Far from being a 'middle way' between the founders and the Progressivism of Woodrow Wilson, as Tulis argued [Jeffrey Tulis in The Rhetorical Presidency (1987)], T.R.'s words and deeds put him squarely in the latter camp. In fact, when Wilson penned his famous vision for the modern presidency in Constitutional Government in the United States (1908), he was clearly inspired by then President Roosevelt's example."
