Let’s Make One Thing Perfectly Clear … Barack Hussein Obama is Not Ronald Reagan
Let’s just make one thing perfectly clear …. BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, YOU ARE NO RONALD WILSON REAGAN!
The MSM just will not stop making excuses, comparisons or carrying the water for Barack Hussein Obama. Their constant reference that Obama is Lincolnesque or comparable to Ronald Reagan is laughable. Obama is neither the “Great Communicator” nor is he the fantastic orator that the MSM makes him out to be. However, the WAPO once again feels the need to justify and make excuses for Barack Obama, ‘Reagan’s first term offers measuring stick for Obama’.
“Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem”. (Ronald Reagan)
Obama’s presidency has looked like Reagan’s in some broad ways. Both men succeeded unpopular presidents of the opposite party. Both offered big and bold plans — Reagan with massive tax cuts, Obama with a massive stimulus package and national health care — that set the country in a new direction. Reagan’s goal was to shrink government. Obama’s efforts have enlarged government.
Both presidents were forced by events that preceded their elections to contend with economies in serious trouble. Both saw the unemployment rate rise sharply during their first two years in office — under Reagan, the rate hit 10.8 percent by November 1982 — and both saw their approval ratings decline as the numbers of jobless grew.
For much of this year, Obama and his team have taken some solace from the fact that Reagan’s approval ratings were even lower at comparable points in his presidency. That is no longer the case. In the past week, Obama has hit a new low in his approval rating, according to Gallup’s daily tracking. It now stands at 42 percent, virtually identical to Reagan’s in August 1982. (Both Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter dipped below 40 percent during their second year in office.)
Let’s get a couple thing straight that the MSM refuses to acknowledge. One, Reagan became President following Jimmy Carter with double digit, unemployment, inflation and interest rates. Two, gas prices were through the roof as odd-even rationing existed. Three, the Soviet Union was in Afghanistan and the hostages were just released from Iran. Four and most importantly, Democrats controlled the House of Representatives during Reagan’s first term in office. Also do not forget what happened when Reagan was sworn into office, the US hostages being held captive in Iran were formally released into United States custody the following day, just minutes after the new American president Ronald Reagan was sworn in.
However, here are the biggest differences between the two Presidents where Obama should never be referenced in the same sentence as Ronald Wilson Reagan. Just because a President is a disaster in the polls does not make them Reagan-like.
- Ronald Reagan was trusted by the American people, Barack Hussein Obama is not.
- Ronald Reagan spoke of promise and a brighter future and that America was a “shining city on the hill”. Obama does nothing but makes apologies for America.
- Reagan empowered people, Obama provides them record food stamps.
- Reagan did what he said and said what he did, Obama through a lack of promised transparency shoved unpopular policies and programs like the stimulus and Obamacare down the throats of Americans.
- Reagan spoke directly and connected with the American people, Obama lectures the American people.
- Reagan brought people together and created the coalition of the “Reagan Democrats”, Obama has become the most polarizing President in history.
- Reagan was a capitalist, Obama is a big government socialist.
How can you compare two President like Obama and Reagan when they are polar-opposites? Obama is in fact the anti-Reagan. Reagan believed in cutting taxes which lead to one of the greatest economic prosperous periods ever. Obama believe in government spending, raising taxes and being anti-business. We are comparing the two how again?
Also and most importantly, Ronald Regan believed that government was the problem, not the solution. Obama believes that “big government” and the nanny state is the answer to all of societies ills.
Make no mistake about it, Obama, you are no Ronald Reagan, you are not even close. Obama’s Presidency will go down as one of the worst in US history, rivaling Carter’s. We can only hope that we have a country left to fix and that we can undo the damage that Obama and his extremist Democrats have brought upon the USA.

Great article! Good 7 points….add another
(A BIG LIAR)
Reagan was one of the worst presidents in US history.
SM: Yea, you are a rocket scientists I see. Let me guess, we have touched a nerve with the liberal moonbats.
Nice try in thinking that you could get a link with your comment.
LOL, Obama like Ronald Reagan. Hell, BO ain’t even like Brad Reagan, my HS baseball coach.
The media may want to start writing that Obama’s presidency is more like Carter’s than Reagan. BO is going to lose in a landslide in 2012.
Ha! Looks like Reagan’s presidency in NO way! 1/2 through Reagan’s first term, the majority of the population was not wanting Jimmy Carter back! Bush now beats the Obamster in generic polls!
Hey libtard – really? One of the worst? What proof do you have of that?
You mean the same President who created over 20M jobs during his Presidency?
You mean the same President who rescued the economy from the 1987 “crash?”
You mean the same President who didn’t get us into any wars but showed the strength of our military when we scared Qadafi into hiding?
You mean the same President who ended the Cold War with the Soviet Union and was prevelant in getting the Wall taken down?
You’re an idiot.
Scott, what do you expect from an individual who has a screen name that not only suggests they are a liberal, but a homosexual? Such a person WOULD prefer B.O. to Reagan, not surprised at all.
Rememeber, those who served Hitler thought he was like a savior/their god too……
Great post. For those interested, look at how well Gerald Ford had the economy going before that nitwit Carter took over. The Dems just had to have their pound of flesh over Nixon, so we got Carter instead of Gerald Ford, who I regard as the second best US President of the last 100 years behind Reagan.
not only islamfobic butalso homofobic?
wasn’t Grenada on Reagans watch?
and the Iran affair?
I would hardly call those wars….btw the way its phobic
i like how you display that you have a lack of histoy and reality.
1. pretending that obama raised taxes but can’t name one.
2. pretend that reagan only cut taxes when he really raised taxes like crazy.
SM: Do you even have a clue as to what you are talking about?
Iraq war was a walk in the park too (both of them).
