Obama’s Reagan Comparison Sparks Debate? Why?


Here’s a journalist feeding the inane , idiotic “interpretations/twisting” of what Obama was saying (rather clearly, and simply,  I might add…..leave it to blood-seeking journalists to add fuel to political inanities (started by the unbelievable claims of Hillary that Obama was saying here that he “liked” Reagan’s ideas).  This journalist feeds into it by his “Ronald REAGAN? The Democrats’ mortal enemy?” 

But here’s a debate no one saw coming in the Democratic primary: the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

Sen. Barack Obama opened the door when he said the following in an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal:

I don’t want to present myself as some sort of singular figure. I think part of what’s different are the times…I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and in a way that Bill Clinton did not. He put us on a fundamentally different path because the country was ready for it. I think they felt like with all the excesses of the 1960s and 1970s and government had grown and grown but there wasn’t much sense of accountability in terms of how it was operating. I think people, he just tapped into what people were already feeling, which was we want clarity we want optimism, we want a return to that sense of dynamism and entrepreneurship that had been missing.

Ronald REAGAN? The Democrats’ mortal enemy, that smiling, supposedly simple-minded actor who expanded the Republican party by wooing all those white, working-class voters?

Why the debate?  The media’s lust for blood.  Jon Stewart had a good jab at this kind of thing the other night with his “Romney erupts?” bit
