Some Snippets From The Telegraph:
lavish celebrations marking what would have been the 100th birthday of “the great communicator”.
Perhaps more surprising is that there is a new claimant to the Reagan throne this year: President Barack Obama. Having once routinely derided Reagan as, in the words of Democratic greybeard Clark Clifford, an “amiable dunce”, the liberal establishment is now seeking to embrace him.
There is little doubt that Reagan would have been dryly derisive of Obama’s policies and presidency. “Government is like a baby,” Reagan once quipped. “An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”
Obama, by contrast, views government as a kindly nurse and the people as the baby. According to his mindset, the people should submit to those in government who know better and whose role is to make decisions and control the purse strings.In contrast, Obama has more in common with Castro, Chavez, and the Muslim Brotherhood then he does with Reagan except for the fact that he is human, that's where the comparison ends!
Dear Leader has been packaged as everyone from Lincoln to Reagan. He's been photographed and verbally exalted to be a modern day Christ. While it's all very disgusting, who can blame the guy? After all, just how much does it suck to admit you're really Barack Obama?
