6. But earlier in Obama's Presidency he was almost worshiping
Reagan like a hero. Must have gone back and read the history of Reagan's administration.

8. I'm not sure that he ever liked Reagan's policies, but he was vocal about...
...wanting to be a transformational president like Reagan.

I remember hoping that he wasn't advocating Reagan's policies.

7. He used Reagan's budget director
to slam Ryan (called it a not serious plan). That was my favorite part cuz the teabaggers worship Reagan.

11. He praised Reagan for "saving" Social Security.
Or did you miss that?

15. Why would he go after Reaganism the way he did and then add that?

19. I hate it when he muddies the waters like that - better to make things clear.

12. Sure, it's great
but it's too bad it came from President Weathervane,
it's bound to change, just depends on which way the political wind is blowing.

I've seen that movie before -- a populist while campaigning, and a Republican after election. :puke:

20. He did it in a veiled way. He should've gone harder.
To me the best part was how he pledge not to cut taxes again.

21. You're right, it was veiled - but Hartmann was sure the prez was repudiating Reagan...
Listening to the cuts he played on his show today, it did seem that way.
