It was a B0bot that read the transcript of this latest much praised speech on economy and uncovered the buried lede
Now, we have a different vision for the future. See, I’ve never believed that government has all the answers to our problems. I’ve never believed that government’s role is to create jobs or prosperity. I believe it’s the drive and the ingenuity of our entrepreneurs, our small businesses; the skill and dedication of our workers — (applause) — that’s made us the wealthiest nation on Earth. (Applause.) I believe it’s the private sector that must be the main engine for our recovery.
I believe government should be lean; government should be efficient. I believe government should leave people free to make the choices they think are best for themselves and their families, so long as those choices don’t hurt others. (Applause.)
I agree, this was his Reagan posing at most brazen. Few noticed as they were so deliriously happy that he was attacking the GOP – even as he was embracing their agenda – which pretty much sums up Jr.jr.
Earlier this year, they had a clue
but somehow the fluffers sprinked pixie dust over that and threw it down the memory hole.
Not much awareness came from the media praising Jr.jr’s Reagan-like actions
While the first family attended a dance performance in the Center’s main theater, an impressive showing of Republicans gathered on the top floor to take in the premiere of “Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny,” a new film narrated by Newt and Callista Gingrich which paints a glowing portrait of our 40th president.
While Barack, Michelle, Sasha and Malia were treated like rock stars down below, it was Ronald Reagan being toasted up above by such GOP notables as Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich, George Allen, Ollie North, Bob Livingston, Al Regnery, Craig Shirley, David Bossie, Saul Anuzis, Jim Pinkerton and Fred Thompson.
Nor did they pay attention to his campaigning as Reagan
In January, Obama came under fire from within his party after casting himself as an emotive heir to Reagan. “Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America,”
especially when courting the fundies
Barack Obama dusted off a Ronald Reagan line from the past at his recent meeting with religious leaders in Chicago. In a 1980 convention of Evangelical Ministers Reagan once famously said, “I know you can’t endorse me, but I endorse you.”
Reagan’s central insight–that the liberal welfare state had grown complacent and overly bureaucratic, with Democratic policy makers more obsessed with slicing the economic pie than with growing he pie–contained a good deal of truth.”
.So now who is shocked to hear that trickle down? Not the fluffers who find new ways to justify this
7. He’s from the anti-authoritarian left.
It was creative to add in the line about staying out of the way of Wall Street even though he passed more regulation against them. They were harming others, so more regulation to stop that harm was necessary. Permalink
The implication being that Clinton, Johnson, FDR were the authoritarian left.
It finally dawns on some what this means
He is telling you where he stands and what he “believes”… and he is confident in doing so. He will not be contradicted; he will be supported. Look around you.
The Party of FDR is dead.
Hey, remember what Obama said to those anxious that the November elections will be a repeat of 1994? “This time you got me”
Suddenly, this competition with Clinton takes new dimensions
