I recently received several emails from liberals upset with comparisons I made between the economic records of President Obama and President Reagan, who died 10 years ago today on June 5.

Like the old ad:

This is your brain: (picture of Reagan.)

This is your brain on drugs: (picture of Obama).

Really??? The only thing that Obama can compare to Ronald Reagan is that they both sat in the same office space. That’s it. It is a crime to even think that Obama could compare to Ronald Reagan.

Obama is the ‘62 Mets. Reagan is the ‘76 Reds.

I don’t even bother trying to equate a patriot with a phony communist usurper.

Well, there you go again! I see it this way, metaphorically Reagan’s record is the boot and obama’s record is the Ant. Boot, Ant, nuff said.

According to Rand Paul’s description of Reagan, Reagan and Obama, and Rand Paul, are all pretty much the same on foreign policy, timid and weak, libertarian.

Hey, kewel.

I stood exactly where you are standing and cried as I looked over the valley.

Best Day trip ever and it was a birthday present from a friend who despised him.

Funny, two years later, she ordered cuff links and a tie clip for a costume party, where I was requested to dress ala Reagan, which I did and even had my old Corum American Eagle Time Piece serviced for the occasion...

Reagan = Josiah, last righteous king to reign in Judah

Obama = Manasseh, most evil king in history of Judah

Need I say more?

When Reagan died, even his political enemies were lionizing him. There was no denying his greatness, and they even acknowledged, after the fact, all the great things he accomplished. When we are finally rid of Obama from this planet, a day which cannot come too soon, I think all will remember him as a buffoon who was in over in his head and who accomplished only negative and transient goals that no one except a small fringe really wanted. He will be thought of as a charlatan, and, like Germans, people will say, “what were we thinking?”

Like 0 bummer is the Houston Colt 45s and Astros, and Reagan is the Dallas Cowboys.

This can’t be a serious question. Sorry, this question deserves no answer.

How does Obama's record compare to Reagan's?

The same way a lighting bug compares to lighting?

If you're a liberal then Obama's record is a whole lot better. If you're a conservative then the record is a whole lot worse.

If you are and you live between The Bay Area and the library we could do a day trip.

I think it would be fun to go with someone next time. My friend, who paid for my birthday present, stayed in the parking lot all day.

I was probably in there 5 hours or so and thought she was pretty patient. Heck, she called me to ensure I took my time and saw everything.

One of the leading headlines on Bing is “Nancy Reagan death” but the subject has to do with President Reagan’s passing. Bad choice of words.
