Leftwingers Still Haunted By Ronald Reagan

I've often thought that the IDEAL Republican candidate would be a Ronald Reagan clone. Yes, if we could clone Ronald Reagan the GOP would have the perfect candidate. However, in a strange way, Ronald Reagan is back haunting the left again. This happened when Barack Obama recently mentioned that Ronald Reagan was a very successful president. However, to even say this obvious fact in passing is considered HERESY by the Left. Despite public gestures of pretending to "respect" Reagan, they really hated him because of the way he completely transformed this country. We have seen examples of the liberal media being flustered by the public's admiriation for Reagan. One instance was Tom Brokaw grumbling about the massive public turnout for Reagan's funeral which made him whine about the coverage of it was "overdone." Yeah, Tom, it must have killed you to see endless crowds of people lined up to pay their respects to Ronald Reagan lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda. Brokaw probably also blew a fuse over the fire engines over the highway leading to Reagan's Simi Valley resting place with their ladders extended in salute to the Gipper. Also of note was the depressed look of Matt Lauer when he had to announce, reluctantly, that Ronald Reagan was voted the Greatest American on his special show devoted to that topic. Sorry for ruining your day, Matt. And now we have the Left in an uproar over Obama's offhand remarks as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Lie of the day: 'Obama simply thinks Reagan was a uniter; not that he was successful'." So let us now watch the DUmmies remain haunted by the ghost of the Gipper in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, happy that Reagan is still riling them, is in the [brackets]

Lie of the day: "Obama simply thinks Reagan was a uniter; not that he was successful"

[Obama has committed a Thought Crime!]

I have heard some Obama supporters warn other readers to be careful and not jump into conclusions, as Obama was simply trying to bring up the fact that Reagan was a uniter. They talk about the mood of the nation, unity, and other abstractions in an attempt to muddy the waters in regards of Obama's feelings about Reagan. But here is what Obama told Meet The Press in a 2006 interview, via Talking Points Memo. Unless Obama inexplicably changed his mind about Reagan within the past year, his position stands:

[The People's Court will now place before the jury evidence of Obama's Thought Crime.]

"But I think, when I think about great presidents, I think about those who transform how we think about ourselves as a country in fundamental ways...And, you know, there are circumstances in which, I would argue, Ronald Reagan was a very successful president, even though I did not agree with him on many issues, partly because at the end of his presidency, people, I think, said, 'You know what? We can regain our greatness. Individual responsibility and personal responsibility are important.' And they transformed the culture and not simply promoted one or two particular issues."

[GASP! Obama just brought a frown to Tom Brokaw's face.]

Note that even though Obama says he disagrees with many of Reagan's issues, this disagreement is not enough to make him anything less than a very successful president".

[Agggggghhhhh!!! Must NOT give credit to Reagan for being successful! And now on to the other DUmmies...]

Yeah a "successful president." AND he used "personal responsibility." scuse me while I puke.

[And admission that Ronald Reagan was successful still makes the Left sick.]

I'm arguing the exact opposite, that he was a very successful president. And that is impossible to deny.


Did he get elected twice? Did he get most of his policies pushed through for good or ill, that is what some would call successful.

[Your tombstoning ceremony will commence IMMEDIATELY.]

What was Reagan's Approval rating when he left?

[Depressingly high.]

Remember there were very few computers in homes. And little independent discours to challeng what the vote, or newspapers claim!

[Yeah, we were all just a bunch of mind-numbed robots blindly following the Gipper.]

Bingo! Things would have been a lot different if there had been computers in people's homes.

[LOL! So Mondull would have won in '84 if ONLY we had computers back then.]

I have a more disgusting statistic for you... As of just last year, 16% of Americans view Reagan as the "Greatest President in History". That's second only to Lincoln at 18%. I can only hope that they're rating him on "influence".

[I have even more depressing news for you. Ronald Reagan was voted as the Greatest American by the public on a show of that name. It was enough to put a gloomy look on the show's host, Matt Lauer.]

I just can't even think straight when I think of reagan and that American's voted for that pos. I am usually very careful with my spelling, syntax and grammar...but right now all I can think of is how much I hate Reagan.

[Is that you, Tom Brokaw?]

A racist lefty! I'm shocked! Shocked!

However, we need a T-man here to remind us of "progressive" thought.

But it gets tiresome to ALWAYS have victories, trog... Like that Twilight Zone where the guy who dies and always gets anything he wants without challenge realizes he is actually in hell...

We beg the opposition to come up with ANYTHING helpful or productive... or good for America.


Now, you'll read this and either take some (additional) calming meds and veg out in front of "The Price is Right" with some KFC while mumbling "stupid rightwingers" (under your breath for fear of waking your parents) OR, you'll reply with yet another brilliant "oh yeah? Well you're a doody-head!" comebacks.

Prove me wrong.

Unless you're another incarnation of master-spoofer, "true patriot", in which case I salute you for capturing the very essence of the deranged minions of DU.

I think I'm going to stop bothering to answer troggie any more. Not when all he does apparently is C&P out of the libtard playbook, and one can only try to reason with a tape recorder for so long. At least Alex the Parrot at least understood what he was saying. So, on to actual men.

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Reagan's funeral. Imagine representatives from the Sioux and Navajo nations in full regalia, high-ranking German officers, Ghana diplomats in royal kente, and even wannabe reporters from that wacky Truther Freedom TV (who were actually behaving themselves for a change) all standing for hours in the same line just to view him Laying in State.

And when even a man's former enemies acknowledge his greatness, that's a pretty good measure of the man he is.

The two greatest Presidents are both Republicans. Man, that's going to leave a mark! No wonder the DUmmies have their panties in a bunch.

"Remember there were very few computers in homes. And little independent discours to challeng what the vote, or newspapers claim!"

It can't be true! The votes don't count! I demand a recount! And if that doesn't work, recount the recount! Swiftboated! Hanging chads! Diebold! Selected, not Elected! ARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!

Reagan always deserved number two in my book. Lincoln is obviously the finest President we've ever had, in terms of the challenges he overcame. He was a brilliant leader.

With Reagan, I am guided by Sun Tzu "The acme of skill is to subdue the enemy without fighting." He brought down the greatest threat to freedom the world had ever seen and he did it without firing a shot. Oh, and by the way created the biggest economic growth in American history.

DUmmies cannot admit admiration for Reagan, because he more then anyone else proves all their ideas wrong.

My guess for third would be Teddy Roosevelt. Therefore the top 3 would be Republicans

Reagan was not a perfect man, I will not deify him, but he was the greatest president of your country in my lifetime. I was too young to remember the Iranian embassy hostage situation at the time, but that was his first test as president and he passed with flying colours. As he has passed I won't bring up his mistakes, but they were few, and he learned from them. the Reagan Diaries is a great read, I highly suggest it to any one interested in learning what he actually thought. I don't think any candidate has the charisma, wit, and wisdom to match him as either president or as a man. A man of character.

Compared to Jimmy Carter, Elmer Fudd would have been a pretty good president. Compared to anyone except Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln, Reagan was an exceptional president. He ranks with those three. (And Jefferson founded the Republican-Democratic Party.)

Nice DUmmie thread on Pres. Reagan can be found here:

Publius, thanks for that link.

My God, it's frightening to see the incredible level of blind hate and rage the people who are the core of the Socialist Democratic Party of America possess. If we let people like this gain power in 2008, the United States of America will be permanently screwed. Truth2Tell would not know the truth or reality if you carved it into an ironwood 2x4 and smashed him in the face with it. He lacks the intellect and courage to face the real world and he is nothing more than a hate filled Anti-American guttersnipe.

Democrat2theCore appears to be an actual Democrat, and as such will soon be tombstoned from that group as he isn't anywhere close to being a foam at the mouth hate filled guttersnipe.

And speaking of "feeling the love", check out this hate mongering Anti-American Socialist Democrat guttersnipe on YouTube - This flaming jackass is completely deranged.

The mere mention of "Personal Responsibility" makes this Moonbat "puke".

He confirms the truth of the Conservative argument in a single sentence.
