This was the last straw. When Obama says how he's tight with Reagan I'm going to be sick. Since the speech, I have been hearing Obama loves Reagan, now. Reagan, a man who wanted small government, is now Obama's man. This strategy is just another "How do we fool them today?" tactic. They take the American people for fools. Just read Obama's books and find out.
It appears bipartisan to invoke Reagan's ideology whenever there is any need for political retreat. Perhaps that speaks to his enduring popularity.
The funny thing about Obama invoking Reagan is that the Democrats absolutely hated Reagan during his time in office, called him all kinds of names from "amiable dunce" to nothing more than a puppet who could read a script really well. But politicians will do whatever they need to do to stay in power.
