Obama Not Even On the Same Planet as Ronald Reagan Was

The comparison by overzealous Left-wing media commentators of Obama to Reagan is completely absurd. They forget a couple of key items: policy wise, Reagan was as conservative as those who they despise; Reagan was a pro-business capitalist, an optimist and pro-life. Obama is the opposite of all of these. Second, we have been told repeatedly that the Reagan era is dead, that Reagan was dangerous and that the GOP can't keep clinging to Reagan if they want to win elections. The strained comparison to Obama shows that Reagan's ideas are both popular and relevant and the GOP needs to embrace them.

The only thing that can be said is that Obama sticks to his Marxist, Left-wing principles just like Reagan stuck to his free-market, pro-growth principles.
