Ronald Reagan, he ain’t

The great communicator?  That’d be Ronald Reagan.  And if Tuesday night’s rambling press conference is any indication of how this President will communicate with the American people, it’s clear that Barack Obama is not another RR.  He seriously lacks the ability to connect with the common man.

He may, in fact, be the least effective communicator to occupy the Oval Office since the advent of television. If the American people have any doubt about what’s ahead and the least bit of worry about deficit projections of $9.3 trillion for the next decade, towering deficits that steal quality from our grandchildren’s lives, worry not.  As President Obama reassures, "we have to bend the curve on deficit projections."  And in so doing, the children to come will get on just fine.  We guess. And in some of those "out years" after the curve’s been bent, we’ll all have free Bubble Up and be eating that Rainbow Stew.  Or something.

At times Tuesday night, President Obama appeared to be filibustering the media. Responses wandered aimlessly without enough specifics even to comprehend what he was saying. He keeps referring to spending as "investments," as most liberals do, apparently making the argument that more spending will reduce deficits — though he never quite explained how. 

One response was just simply amusing.  When asked about how he weighed the ethics and morality of his decision to allow federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, he could not bring himself to utter the words "human life."   He almost choked when he’d constructed a sentence that absolutely commanded he utter the words "human life" in proximity to some form of the word "embryo" and finally managed to spit out
uh, you know, human life issues…"

Without the Teleprompter he’s a terribly undisciplined speaker.  And what was the substance of his press conference, the news angle?  Hard to say.  But I’m thinking things will be better in the out-years when those who have benefited from the prosperity of the past eight years have sufficiently transferred the residuals of that prosperity to somebody the President deems more deserving.

“Ronald Reagan, he ain’t”, which begs the question, why would you even bother to compare him with Reagan? Sounds to me like your a bit overwhelmed by Obamas popularity; perhaps your a bit jealous. Is it the ‘great communicator’ thing that has you down, JW? Afraid that somehow this liberal will steal the title from your savior Reagan?

Your thinking here is petty, and extremely stupid. If this is the best arguement the opposition can make to Obamas policies and style then tuck in for the long run. Back to the wilderness with you JW; go bark at the moon for all the good it will do.

As Dubya stated, maybe you “misunderestimated” him. This president is thoughtful and his sentences are clear. His sentences have a subject and a predicate unlike the verbage of the Alaskan governor. I wish the Republicans would come up with an idea that would help the country instead of acting like Rush Limbaugh.

He is less than impressive without the official office of the Teleprompter of the POTUS with him. The occupant of the Teleprompter Office is his BEST FRIEND. He stammers and stutters, duhs and ums with the best of them when off the Prompter as he travels through all “57″ states.

No, he is no Ronald Reagan. I am overwhelmed by his popularity as I am underwhelmed by his experience. I just continue to pray that he is no JIMMY CARTER. Only time will tell.

Ah yes, no one can inspire the American people like an actor who is in the early stages of dementia. Seriously though, the problem with democracy is the majority of people are ignorant or just plain stupid. Ron Paul was clearly what this country needed but he offered logic and intelligence when all the people wanted to hear was “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Ronnie warned us about that. I’ll hand it to him on that one. Brilliant!

He created a special Office of Human Rights which sent a letter to the Shah of Iran as a “polite reminder” of the importance of political rights and freedom. In response the Shah released over 350 Islamic fundamentalist prisoners who would later play roles in the Islamic Revolution and Iran Hostage crisis.

Problem is that Obamalini is acting like a narcissistic dictator in the same form of Mao, Chavez, Castro, and Stalin. To make matters worse, in the Senate, Ben Cardin has put in a bill to move newspapers from for-profit to non-profit provided they don’t do any political endorsements. As much as I dislike the BLT (Bookman-Luckovich-Tucker) gang in the AJC, I don’t wish to see the paper turned into a southern version of “Pravda”. If this bill passes, you can kiss freedom of press goodbye, especially since the same people who want to save newspapers also want to silence talk radio and the Internet.

A sincere plea to Sonny and Romeo: Please don’t embarrass Georgia again.

I can see what you’re up to. You’re already shuffling the political deck so you can play the race card in the next election. Don’t do it. We’ve been hurt enough.

The nation and the state are in worse shape economically than I ever remember. Government needs unity to untangle horrendous problems. We don’t need grandstanding, and we sure as hell don’t need demagoguery and race-baiting to fend off Great Depression II.

While serious lawmakers and a president try to hammer out an economic rescue package in Washington, let’s look in on Sonny and Romeo to see what they’ve been up to back in Atlanta.

Gov. Sonny Perdue has joined the Texas governor in an all-out legal battle to overturn the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

When Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker declined to help our governor rescind federal civil rights laws, Perdue signed up a private lawyer to do the job. His first mission: Go to court to overturn a 40-year-old statute that gives the Justice Department oversight of elections in states with racist records. (That would be “white primary” Texas, “dead man voting” Georgia and a bunch of others.) Such a measure was a hot topic in the 1960s. Then it disappeared from the news. You never heard about it again – until now. This region needs a lawsuit to overturn civil rights laws like it needs another round of military-base closings.

Double-digit unemployment, two wars, trillion-dollar deficits and just-around-the-corner inflation somehow seem more important.

Ah, but no. First things first. Before we take care of childhood diseases, overcrowded schools and runaway unemployment, Perdue sees a need to throw in with Texas to fight yellowing civil rights legislation. Perdue tending to his bass boats or his real-estate portfolio would be more noble and worthwhile tasks.

As for Romeo Richardson, whose face will be carved on the newly planned Mount Rushmore II – the one that will depict America’s most notable idiots – what has he been up to?

Having run out of skirts to chase around the Capitol rotunda, House Speaker Richardson has decided to devote his energies to insulting the Legislative Black Caucus. Understandably, the caucus felt special recognition was due the nation’s first black president, so it prepared a gilded resolution in his honor. The white leadership of the House said no, no, no. The caucus walked out when its resolution – a routine certificate paying homage to a person of note – was sent back to committee. Romeo said the document wasn’t ready for prime time. Its literary style was not up to Georgia’s standards.

Several other GOP leaders said they did not agree with its contents. These are the same dummies who believe that America produces clean coal and that unregulated banks work best to stave off a collapsing economy. This is the same crowd now opposed to the Legislative Black Caucus playing “Hail to the Chief” when Obama walks onto a Georgia stage.

Lest you believe Romeo and Sonny have hit the racial trail out of pure ignorance, think again. GOP strategists are preparing to use the race card as their main issue in the next round of elections in 2010. They’ve worn out gay weddings and illegal aliens as the gravest threats to our republic. Being Republicans, they, of course, do not wish to discuss money matters. Now the elephants have decided to resurrect that old standby political plank: Blacks are too uppity, and the South is still being wrongly persecuted for slavery and a host of other antiquated sins.

In a close election for governor, the old Talmadge strategy might work. “Preserving our way of life” in Georgia is a politician’s most important chore. So says the mantra that seldom fails. The other stuff – health care, better schools, improved highways – doesn’t mean much. Besides, an out-of-work Georgian with no money in the bank who proudly proclaims he’s a member of the Republican Party probably can’t understand such complicated issues as tax digests, land-use plans and unpolluted water. I just hope he’s smart enough to recognize the old racial sleight-of-hand trick when he sees it.

Obama had staffers with crackberries texting someone that loaded his teleprompter after each question. He needed them to tell him what he needed to say. He would look down after the questions and get his info before addressing each question. Of course, you don’t get that from MSNBC.

His entire speach was as if he were running for office, like it was Sept 2008 again. Someone tell him that he only has to run every 4 years, not every year.

Also, I find it appalling that a sitting president would slam the previous administration like he does. It is expected for a candidate to do that, but not a sitting president. Reagan didn’t slam Carter after Reagan took office. Clinton didn’t do it to Bush I, Bush II didn’t do it to Clinton. Yes, Obama inherited a mess, but for crying out loud, take ownership of it and lead, don’t complain.

Final point… dems have been pushing for certain programs for years now. Universal healthcare, green initiatives, an even steeper progressive tax structure, etc. Obama is fearmongering with the current economy to push their agenda. ‘Worst since the depression’, desperate, you need to get on board with what we want so that we can fix the economy. It is the worst economy since the Carter years, no farther. And it will fix itself despite the government, not because of it. Don’t buy into the big govt agenda. Don’t buy into the massive debt spending. Where are all the democrats today that praised Clinton for bringing budget spending into the black?!? C’mon, speak up.

Dawg, it is too easy to hit off of a tee. At least make it a fastball.

#1 – “Just how did this country go from the black to swimming in red ink? ” Answer, it doesn’t matter. Instead of dipping the pen in red ink, Obama wants to pour the red ink bottle all over the paper, and now the paper won’t be worth the paper it is printed on. Kill the govt spending and bring in fiscal responsibility.

#2- On the WH and congress being republicans…Yes, you are correct. They failed to continue the fiscal budget principles Clinton started. Forget that there were wars we can’t pay for, a techno bubble burst and recession that Bush inherited (but didn’t complain about on national TV after elected), and forget that Clinton had $9/bbl oil. I’ll give you a pass on all of that and give you pts on Bush’s budget. So, let’s live in the present and plan for the future, and bring back fiscal responsibility. Why can’t we do that?

Don’t need talking pts, as I don’t pay attention to pundits. You can play your historical blame game all you want, there are plenty of blamees to pick from.

All anyone with even a modicum of intelligence needs to do is read some of the many ‘Myths of Ronald Reagan’ to understand that the country was, and has been, conned about this guy for thirty years and more. Then again, as I read the examples of his deceit and phoniness, I realize that those that love him so are incapable of accepting the reality of who he really was

I’ve asked some of my Republican friends that if they were to finally be convinced that the ‘The October Surprise’, where RR and his butt-boy GHW Bush, along the vile William Casey, bribed the Iranians with missiles and much more in military hardware (all against the law) so they would hold on-to the Embassy hostages until after the election just to make sure Jimmy Carter would be sure to lose, was true, would they have a problem with it. To a man, or woman, they say ‘not really’…anything that means Republicans are in power and Democrats ain’t is fine with them. Lies, torture, greed, bigotry and prejudice…it doesn’t matter if it keeps them in office. And as for Georgia, so long as Republicans are in the majority, we’ll be the sorriest of the sorry…and that’s saying a lot.

There was a time, late in his second term, when it looked like Big Buddy might’ve been overmatched by the busy beavers who dissembled over Nicaragua on his behalf. In retrospect that episode seems to have foreshadowed Reagan’s slow death from Alzheimer’s Disease. And yet when his juniors were caught makin’ book on the Contras, what did Reagan do? He stared straight into the camera and took the blame onto himself. And later, when the Alzheimer writing was on the wall, what did he do then? He wrote us a letter, and exited Stage Right.

In short, he was in control. He commanded.

You stimulate your way out of a mess of this magnitude hoping that the stimulus stems the tide of newly created joblessness and it’s associated mega problems, or you can cut everything in sight to include the military and slash and burn your way back toward the black but create more carnage along the way. I guess as long as one was not part of the collateral damage from that approach they might go in that direction. OR…as all the Mitt Romneys of the world would like for us to believe, all we have to do is wait for the market to correct itself. I.E. business as usual. Yeah right!

If last night doesn’t prove what a Pelosi Puppet this nation elected, then nothing will. I have never heard such a dry, monotonous, fumbling, bumbling, vague, spin fest ever – and yes, that includes W. It was excruciating to watch, tiresome to try and get any real information out of Obama Telepromptless ramblings, and humorous at times watching Obama try and spin his way out of an Iraq or Afghanistan question by reverting back to the economy. It is apparent this guy has no CLUE what he’s doing, unlike, say, Nannypants, Sin Cityboy Reid, and Bidenplugs – they KNOW what they are doing to this nation.

One answer of Obama’s really caught my attention: ‘we must act NOW for a greener environment and to stop climate change’ – or something along those lines. Act NOW, huh? You mean like acting NOW when a stimulus bill was ramrodded through congress before most of it was even READ? Line by line, huh? Yeah that was a rip roaring success.

Can you imagine the train wreck ahead with these fumbling, bumbling liberal Democlowns in Washington ramrodding “green” mandates and legislation without Americans so much as even knowing what hit them? We’ve got just a year and a half before the next major national election (congress). It would behoove those of us who do not want America turned into a fascist state run by liberals to start supporting district candidates running up against these buffoons – conservative Democrats will do just fine at the very least. Nannypants will be the hardest to deal with because she hails from pinko moonbat land.

What is really interesting about watching what’s happening to this nation under pure liberal Democrat rule is how their supporters are just smiling with that blank glaze in their eyes to every word these bozos say – totally not comprehending WHAT they are saying. It reminds me of how it must have been on the Jim Jones farm in South America right before everyone took a sip of that Kool Aid. Steve Kroft was right on 60 Minutes to insinuate that Obama is punch drunk. ALL of the bozos in Washington on the left are drunk: drunk on liberal stupidity.

What to do? That is pretty easy. If you are going to assume $1T of spending, only a portion of which will filter down to us citizens to be put to use (also assuming of course, that there is a need to stimulate the economy to begin with), then take that $1T, divide by $350M citizens, and cut all of us a $2,857 check and that will stimulate the heck out of everything. People holding on to their old clunker might be able to buy a car. GM would like that too. The UAW cat that gets to hold onto his job will like that too.

But this all assumes that we HAVE to do something. Where is it said that the economy always has to be moving in a positive direction? Where is it that investments have to always be increasing, and not cyclical? This premise assumes high inflation, increased prices, increased wages needed to cover increased prices – a vicious circle. A downturn, or a correction, is needed periodically. In this particular case, there are two huge victims, housing and banking. Housing was caused by bad banking, spurred by the notion that homeownership should be increased, particularly for those that really shouldn’t be able to afford a house (circa ‘94 during Clinton). Sounds good when market forces are going up. In reality, it is a bad idea, and when it became time to pay the piper, there was an implosion. Why can’t we let badly managed companies fail?

The first blogger did not get the point of Mr. Wooten’s comment that Oduma is no Ronald Reagan. The fact is that many liberals and sychophants in the electronic and print media have been comparing the new President to RR (and others) as a communicator. He simply is NOT a Reagan. Reagan was a marvelous speaker and did well off the cuff. Kennedy was good at that also. Eisenhower was probably the best at press conferences of any President except Franklin Roosevelt. Roosevelt screened questions, though. Oduma’s main problem is that he just is trying to do too much at once and he is willing to spend too much money to do it. Even the EU President thinks that he has gone overboard. That’s really bad.

He also dealt drugs to get money to subvert the will of the people in Nicaragua. he ordered the murder of Maurice Bishop and stomped all over the freedoms of Grenada.
