Obama is REAGANESQUE?
You probably saw this story on FOX tonight: Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour and Andrea Mitchell (and I think a few others but I can't think of them right now) all mentioned how REAGONESQUE Obama appeared during his SOTU speech. And, of course, they meant that as a compliment.....this time. These are people who hated ANYTHING REAGAN and now OBAMA is REAGANESQUE and they LIKE it?
Here's MY take on the FOX story: You know how I'm frequently saying I think the White House sends out media memos..."say this, say that..?" Ya, this has to be what that was..........connect the minds of Americans with THE REPUBLICAN MOST AMERICANS LOVE in the fight to keep a leftwing Democrat president popular.....let them think he loves the country like Reagan, let them think he puts America first like Reagan, let them think he's a Republican like Reagan..........gad, who'd have thought?
Could I be wrong? Not on this one. "Oh, how REAGANESQUE!" ya, RIGHT. But pretty darned clever.
