Well, he did at least admit as much during his historically dishonest campaign/self-marketing phase: Barack Obama greatly admires Ronald Reagan.
During the marketing phase, Obama tried to pass this off as being about changing “the trajectory of America.” Now we know what codswallop that was.
Now we know that Obama loves Reagan because he IS Reagan 2.0 — a kindly, salable, self-absorbed, well-timed super-stooge for our decrepit, vampirical, Earth-wrecking overclass.
Exhibit A: Consider this pants-melting, hair-graying Reaganesque screamer from Saint Change’s “first 100 days” press conference:
REPORTER: My question tonight is, given this unique and desperate circumstance, what specific policies can you point to that will target these communities? And what’s a timetable for us to see tangible results?
Compare that claim against reality. You might start here. Or perhaps with yesterday’s sickening charade about credit card rape.
As with Reagan, the main question is whether Obama believes his own b.s., and is therefore profoundly stupid, or is in way deep on the self-packaging prevarications. With Obama, I tend to think the latter, but it remains the core issue of his Presidency, which has otherwise been a complete and utter disaster for the poorest 90 percent of the nation, not to mention the rest of the world.
And you might also recall that it was Reagan’s useful idiocy that greased the rails for the tidal wave of heightened class-struggle-from-above under which we’ve been living ever since the Gipper’s rise from the gubernatorial ooze. One effect of that increased level of capitalism has been ordinary people using credit cards to replace the wages and benefits they’ve lost, as our shareholding bail-out takers have gutted the society while building themselves wine cellars and third homes.
What a country!
