"Is this Reagan versus Carter?" (Did I hear Hannity correctly?
4/25/2012 | Laissez-Faire Capitalist

Posted on 04/25/2012 4:21:52 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

On Hannity's show "Hannity's America," last night I could swear that near the end of his show he asked those on the invited panel "Is this Reagan versus Carter?"

Did anyone watch his show last night and hear this, as he said this pretty fast?

As if Romney is Reagan.

Obama is Carter, but Romney is no Reagan. Romney is a Rinocrat.

I don’t see him coming out and saying that.. but I don’t know. I’ve been out of my car the last two days and I’ve missed his show. He’s stayed relatively neutral on the republican candidates thus far.

Wonder how much the Romney campaign is paying Hannity.

Well, Obama is no Carter either. I believe Jimmy Carter loves his country, though he is very misguided. Deep down, Obama hates America.

Not having heard the program, I would guess he means in terms of landslide, not idealogy. At least I HOPE that’s what he means, cuz Romney is no Reagan.

But I hope it IS a landslide. See tagline.

Did Bain Capital buy Clear Channel? Hmmm?

If so, did Hannity, Beck, Rush, etc, remind/say to listners (say within the first month of Romney tossing his hat in the ring) anything about this?

Nope. Four years earlier.

This is FORD vs. Carter.

And we all know how THAT ended up.

I haven’t seen any pollster (be it Dem, GOP or one ideologically independent) that has projected a landslide for Romney. They all seem to say it is going to be a close election, and that Romney might pick up (take away from Obama) Pennsylvania and Wisconsin/Michigan at best.

Oh, I can see the differences. For example, Romney is the most successful liberal governor in history, and Obama is the most successful liberal [alleged] president in history. That's a shade of difference.

So what's your point?

Romney may not be Reagan, but Obama is even worse than Carter, and he does not have to win by as much as Reagan did. Romney just have to get one more electoral vote than the wanna be king.

"Is this Reagan versus Carter?"

I didn't hear it, so I can't help you. But, have to say, in no way whatsoever is this Reagan versus Carter.

Reagan won by an enormous landslide - Romney will likely lose to Obama, simply because HE IS NOWHERE NEAR REAGAN - in fact he is the polar opposite of Reagan.

Democrats in the media (90+%) generally talk up their candidate's chances. If their projections had held up, we would have had a solid block of Democratic presidents in the last 50 years.

In 1980 it was Reagan vs. Carter vs. Anderson

We have our Carter and Anderson clones and are now awaiting the Reagan candidate to emerge.

Same here. Romney is not Reagan, but he IS better than our Dear Leader.

Now, as I slip on my flame-retardant undergarments, let me say that the speech Romney gave last night in New Hampshire was downright inspiring. After nearly four years of speeches filled with veiled hints of racism, imperialism, (insert -ism here), it was so nice to hear someone singing the praises of this wonderful country. Say what you will about Romney, he loves America. Barack Hussein Obama despises this country.

I do, the social conservatives pushed Carter over the top and saddled the rest of us with a miserable four years. From all of posts on FR, they might do it again.

This youtube is a “Best of” Reagan in his debates with Carter. A lot (all?) of it is just like today.

“Americans keep getting told that we have an Energy problem. When we only use 1/8 of the coal available to us and 22,000 miners are out of work. When nuclear plants aren’t finished because it takes twice as long to meet the government rules than in Japan or Western Europe. That is not an energy problem - that is a GOVERNMENT problem”

Taxes, government waste, excessive regulations, minimum wages, etc.

The question could be interpreted in such a way as to absurd by noting the Romney is no Reagan, being at best an American analogue of a British “Wet” Tory, though surely worse on social issues, and possibly better on some aspects of economic issues.

Of course, it might also be interpreted in a way which is not absurd by noting that Obama is no Carter, but rather an actively anti-American, post-colonialist, multiculturalist Red-diaper baby (albeit with elements of Carter-style incompetence), and so far left that although Romney too far left for the comfort of FReepers, he is enough to the right of Obama that the analogy works.

I think there are alot of similarities. You have a dem running for re-election in a stagnate/bad economy who has made it clear he’s going to go super negative to win re-election. A really good book about the 1980 election is Craig Shirley’s book Rendevous With Destiny.

The interesting thing about Romney is that Mormons think he is the fulfillment of a Mormon prophesy about a Mormon becoming President and saving the Constitution. If Romney thinks he is that man he is suppose to concentrate on saving the Constitution, which seems quite different than the direction he has been heading.
