Gotta love* these kids and their crazy Reagan talk. It’s the usual classic cargo-cult thinking, coupled with an equally-classic why-won’t-these-conservatives-in-real-life-act-like-the-conservatives-living-in-my-head? For the slow of brain (which is to say, the online progressive movement), let me deign to explain why invoking the Gipper should only be done by experts.
- Obama is no Reagan. We know this because Reagan was competent, while Obama had difficulty getting his signature job- and economy-killing legislation passed in a Congress with a partisan breakdown that would have made Reagan green with envy.
- It’s not actually magic, what Reagan did. The American economy is not amenable to someone casting a spell on it; also, the economy of thirty years ago is not the economy of today. In other words, tell me what Reagan would do today, not what Reagan did then. Of course, that answer is not something that the Left would like.
- The Online Left hates us, hated Reagan, and wished that we all had died in a fire. Self-explanatory, really.
Just putting that on the record, like.
*Well… no, not really.
