Discussion: Obama's Goal: Be The Progressive Ronald Reagan

Discussion for article #232249

Except Reagan consistently promoted his goals across 8 years while Obama has only discovered his in the end game.

It is hard to call yourself a progressive when you still support domestic espionage, unrestricted assassinations, and appointment of Wall Street insiders to regulate Wall Street.


Sahil - shove it!!! You have no tricking clue. Obama does not want to be any form of RonaldReagan.


Fuck of and find a new meme Firedog lake is waiting for you.

I absolutely hate, with a reckless abandon,the left. That was an unashamedly left speech and yet it wan’t good enough. Nothing is ever good enough. I give up. I detest the left. Die!


A willing and complicit media would help. A liberal news juggernaut equal to foxnews will be needed and the creation of a web cast like limbaugh created talk radio aimed at countering everything they say or do. Then maybe in 10-15 years we’ll be finishing up flushing the right wing down their bigoted sewers.


Some people are dirt stupid, and some people are Tea Party stupid. I’m sick of Tea Party-like rhetoric from the radical left. This was a great speech from Obama. Hard to find anything in there that I disagree with.


“I know because I won both of them,” Obama quipped.

GOTPers took that bait and shook it like a dog toy! F’*#'d it like a chicken they did!!!

Then…acknowledging the rapid clapping and cheering came this masterful smacking down…

“I know, because I won both of them”

Frickin’ BOOM!!!

GOTPers walked right into it and all butt hurt and whimpering…


And now…

Bring us Joni!!!

The not so sultry bitch with the crazy in here eyes!!!

Homage to Capt. “Trapper” John Francis Xavier McIntyre from the original MASH***

“”“Barack Obama wants to mainline progressivism into the bloodstream of America the way Ronald Reagan ushered in a generation of conservatism.”""

President Obama has said nothing of the kind. That is the opinion. and opinion only, of Sahil Kapur, the author of the comment. Fact are, Mr. Sahil Kapur has no fucking idea what President Obama wants,


I think he wasn’t all that far from the truth. I say we all hope the center moves further left in the future.

I certainly hope the GOP realizes the utter futility of their rightward binge of the last decade. When I was a kid (a very long time ago) the republicans were far more reasonable. But these days a moderate republican is as common as an Ivory Billed Woodpecker. These days the GOP makes Mussolini look like a liberal.


I hear that.

My younger friends have no idea how things have changed since Reagan, or hell, even Nixon, and they don’t want to hear about it either.

He never has had a clue. He is worthless and you can almost know in advance what his stupid stories will say

No she wash.t

The GOP held a retreat in 2009 soon after Obama was sworn in. And they invited him. They thought they could make him kowtow. They learned differently. I wish I’d been a fly on the wall at that meeting. Too many times repubs think Obama isn’t what he is…the smartest quickest thinker and the adult in the room. I expect some in the GOP will need it 'splained to them that they got schooled …on NATIONAL TV.


Joni has that deer in the headlights look.
She has that look my mom had when she was talking to the dog.


The GOP just got humiliated. Going to be a loooooong two years for them.
