In a desperate attempt to create some credibility where none exists, the Obama handlers have tried to compare him to FDR, then JFK and now to Ronald Reagan.
Just a few days ago President Obama referred to himself as "the gipper" in a flagrant attempt to associate himself with Ronald Reagan.
If ever there were two Presidents that were polar opposites then it is Barack Hussein Obama and Ronald Reagan.
Reagan created 27 million new jobs, while Obama lost 3 million jobs. Obama has set new records for debt, deficits, unemployment, food stamp users, people living below the poverty level, and has dangerously expanded government. Reagan drove down both inflation and unemployment. Obama has driven both measures steeply upwards.
Reagan won the Cold War, defeating the Soviet Empire through strength and determination, while Obama apologizes to our enemies and alienates our friends. He has bungled every domestic and foreign policy initiative he has touched and made every problem he "inherited" worse.
Reagan cut taxes and brought greater economic opportunity and prosperity to America. Obama raises taxes, borrows money, and throws it around and has very little to show for it.
Reagan's major accomplishments were restoring our economy, rebuilding our military, winning the Cold War, liberating hundreds of millions from communist oppression in Eastern Europe, and ultimately reuniting Germany.
Obama's ONLY accomplishment was "repealing the ban on gays in the military."
Reagan accomplished all this despite not having solid majorities in either the Senate or the House. He had a slim majority in the Senate, and the Democrats had solid control of the House. Obama has had supermajorities in both houses for his first two years, and accomplished almost nothing.
Time Magazine is out this week with a photoshopped cover of President Ronald Reagan with his arm around President Barack Obama. This manipulated image is as outrageous as it is factually dishonest.
Both men may share the same title, but the way they view America and the world is quite different. The differences are even starker when you hear Reagan and Obama speaking about America.
Reagan uplifted our nation after a disastrous administration of high inflation, interest rates and a prolonged hostage crisis in Iran. President Obama, by contrast, has attacked big business, Wall Street and the banking industry. While overseas, he offered our apology for being an arrogant nation. These actions have been far from uplifting.
In 1982, the national debt was about 40% of gross domestic product. For Obama, after more than 15 months in office, the figure is about 90%. Obama is rapidly running out of people to borrow money from, and printing more won't solve the problem. When our dollars become worth less our creditors will simply demand more of them.
|"I'm really disappointed in Obama"|
This bizarre and deceptive political strategy has caused Ronald Reagan to spin in his grave, and motivated the former President to file a greivance with God over the matter.
God was sympathetic, but said he has no influence over President Obama, since he worships Allah, and imposing His own will would violate His doctrine of "free will" and muddy the waters when the time came to judge Obama.
"There really isn't much I can do" God told us. "But I'll tell you one thing, if you reelect this dope, I will stop shedding my grace on America."
