Times are different but much the same. Country was in a mess back then and now. Carter left it for Reagan and Bush left it for Obama. So what does a leader do?? Reagan went out and told the world how great America was and will be at every chance. The American dream can be achieved. He took on the biggest threat not with a war but with idea's. The wall came down and that made every liberal very upset. Why they can't even tell anyone. Reagan spoke of responsibility, accountability, family and country something liberals can't ever imagine. A great leader. A man who loved his country

Now we go to Obama. After being elected he goes on an apology tour across the world telling of how America is wrong, tells us all that we didn't build anything the government did and divides the country on every issue he can think of. There is no American dream just evil people who are trying to steal everything from you. Most important to the great Obama is taking our guns, gay weddings and wars on women according to him. Obama cares nothing about America, he despises it being here even though he is the greatest recipient of this country.

Reagan was a great leader. Obama a divider.

In terms of policy, they did just about the same thing.

There's a lot of things taken out of context and twisted up in your post. Cite your remarks and you'll put together a more accurate statement and realize how far it falls from the way in which you have currently presented it.

Reagan belived in America. He believed in the people. I'm not arguing his policies were right or wrong. The man was a great president. Obama thinks America is wrong. That is where the problem is. Show me where Obama has spoken about America like Reagan did? The "light" of the world so to say which the US is. Now if you don't believe that then you are on Obama's level. The US was ready to go down in '80 and Reagan brought us back with his policies (not gonna debate that in this thread) and mostly his attitude that the US is great. First thing the man did was get our hostages back. USA........USA......USA.......we need that attitude back and Obama isn't bringing it.

The mindset and the tone it set for the country certainly are a very sharp contrast.

Obama isn't the divider. its the nutcase gop who are the dividers. rather than compromise on trying to grow the economy, they rather focus on legislating reproductive rights of women, redefine "rape", and provide no alternative to the horrendous health care situation in our country.

I think the point was that Obama hasn't been the best president by any means. The fact that the republican party is full of incompetent people is another topic altogether.

The role of congress is not to unite the country. The President, however, does in fact have that responsibility. That you would gloss over.....ignore...such a glaring and obvious truth shows us that you are nothing more than a sheep in the Obama Pasture whose opinions, frankly, aren't worth consideration.

Yes the point is Reagan spoke about the greatness of America, the "light" etc. We were coming out of some bad times when he became president. Contrast to Obama..............?? I can't remember a speech Obama made that called out how great America is and I can't remember a speech Reagan had that didn't do that very thing. I'm not talking about policy but attitude. Reagan got the US back on course so to say. The US was the greatest country in the world and he told everybody about it.

Yep they were virtually identical. They both shut down oil drilling, tried to pass cap & trade and gun control, apologized for America's arrogance, told Israel to stop their settlements, instituted government mandated healthcare, got rid of tax cuts, supported gay marriage and gays in the military, supported unions, refused to compromise with their political opposition in congress, supported abortion, and expanded welfare.

Oh, wait. Reagan did none of those things.

Maybe they weren't so similar after all.

Reagan was a great president and leader. obama is neither. Looking at a couple comments here shows us how little the left understands anything but division and hatred.
