You Sir, Are No Ronald Reagan

Jerry Seib, Assistant Managing Editor of the Wall Street Journal, tries valiantly [see video embedded below] to depict America’s Child Emperor as the second coming of Ronald Reagan. Mr. Seib, this country knew Ronald Reagan and he, sir, is no Ronald Reagan.

Obama is a crooked dealer in a backroom poker game. Neither a negotiator nor a compromiser. He merely took advantage of a hobbled 111th Congress in a lame duck session. He played what amounted to an ace he had hidden up his sleeve.

The Democrats are stuck with this riverboat gambler for two more years and must spend that time searching haplessly for a way out of the trap they set for themselves when they and the state-sponsored media apparatchik failed to vet him.

Earlier in his term, the Child Emperor had left the details of signature issues such as health care and the stimulus package to congressional leaders. After what he called a "shellacking" in the midterms, he took charge of tax negotiations, risking the wrath of his liberal base to win a deal with Republicans quickly.

He pressed forward with a ratification vote on the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia with lukewarm support from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Even some members of his White House had misgivings over the timing, according to officials in the regime.

What we are now witnessing is not POTUS Version 2.0, but rather a president-in-training casting himself as heeding the wishes of voters who demanded bipartisanship when they delivered a “shellacking” to the Democratic Party in the midterm elections.

He has no grit. My apologies to John Wayne.

I am sick and tired of people (talking head pundits) be they from the right or left saying Obama campaigned as post-partisan! This simply is not true.

Yes, his rhetoric in highly publisized speeches sounded as such but in interviews and his website the tone and words were (and are) that of a hard-core socialist. It is ludicrious to say otherwise.

These people (Senate RINO's, socialists and the MSM) are setting-up a new narrative for the very first day of the new congress; Obama and the republicans worked together in the last congress and now the Tea Party are ruining Washington and the country.
