In what ways?

Cutting out all of the childish "us vs them" nonsense, do you really believe that there has ever been a president who DOESN'T believe in America? Honestly.

Different scenario back then - nobody knew who Osama Bin Laden was, he was among the many rebels back in the early to mid 1980s, who were considered "allies" of the United States in Afghanistan because they were fighting the Russians who invaded their country.

With the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt's leadership, who are KNOWN enemies of the United States, Obama gave them F-16s, tanks, plus billions in aid. Where's the common sense in this?

1) Apology tour and international indecision. His "could be my son" and "could have been me 35 years ago" remarks, beer summits, etc.

2) Yes! At least Reagan had some redeeming qualities.

3) Yes. Obama!

You're right. I mean who cares that Obama graduated from two of the most prestigious schools in the world while Reagan only got his B.A from some little pissant school, or that Obama was a practicing attorney in Constitutional law while Reagan was an actor.

I know who I would vote for!

Reagan was also the governor of the most populous state for 8 years. Did Obama have any type of governor job ("community organizer" doesn't count!).

Reagan apologist.

Osama Bin Laden was a Muslim radical when he received aid from Reagan

Reagan vs Obama
I liked reagan, but his presidency was marred by out of control defecit spending and serious foreign policy mistakes like selling missiles to people who hated us (Iran) and CIA running drugs to finance terrorists (contras). I do not consider supporting Mujjahaden in Afghanistan a mistake, because the intentions were right.

As for the economy, Obama has proposed (twice) what Reagan did (lower corporate tax and cut loopholes), but the proposals were rejected both times by his opponents.

Ah so, you funny man. Wake up to reality. Obama can't come close to Reagan. Reagan was ten times the President Obama will ever be. Obama will rank with the worst ever in office.
