1. why is the obama admin echoing reagan? it wasn't 'morning' then & i doubt

 

it is now.

if i assume obama's 'morning' is anything like reagan's, i will expect 30 more years of attacks on workers, deregulation, and increased concentration of wealth & power.

i don't think we can take another 'morning'.


"Morning in America" is the common name of a political campaign television commercial, formally titled "Prouder, Stronger, Better" and featuring the opening line "It's morning again in America." The ad was part of the 1984 U.S. presidential campaign of Republican Party candidate Ronald Reagan. It featured a montage of images of Americans going to work and a calm, optimistic narration that suggested the improvements to the U.S. economy since his 1980 election were due to Reagan's policies and asked voters why they would want to return to the pre-Reagan policies of Democrats like his opponent Walter Mondale, who had served as the Vice President under Reagan's immediate predecessor Jimmy Carter.

2. Ummm... that's not from the administration

It's a Facebook meme made by somebody else.

6. Because it's a nice graphic

And because I am happy that Obama is being inaugurated again.

The implied ridicule of the Cult of Reagan just makes it all the better.

7. Some people have no sense of humor

The "in 'yer face" aspect of that graphic should be obvious to anyone.

12. Yep. Didn't realize nobody could ever have

morning in America again after RR used it once. Especially now that it really will BE morning in America. And just think of that Breath Of Fresh Air we're all breathing since Romney lost, not to mention the Sigh Of Relief.
