    The majority of the Democratic Party and this administration falls right into line with what Reagan wanted, that bailing out business is more important than supporting the safety net, the poor, the powerless, even unions. That somehow, drowning government in a bathtub is a good idea, no matter how much collateral damage it causes, as long as taxes don't go up on the top 5% and corporations. And yes, Obama has cut the size of the Federal government, substantially. Does that impress the wingnuts? Hell no it doesn't, because they're too fixated on the fact Barack is black.

    Meanwhile, the crazy Teabagging Birching Republican Party of today would kick Reagan out on his ass for being 'too liberal'.

    I'm in absolute wonderment at what has happened to this country, it's as if the very soul of it has been sucked out and left to die under a desert sun.

    When is Barack Obama going to realize that no matter what he does, no matter how much he panders to the optics of Reagan, he will never be accepted by the wingers? When will he stand up for the poor and powerless? This speech had all the trappings of a man possibly getting ready to do just that; nice flowery rhetoric. Means not one goddamn thing if you aren't willing to hold your line.

    Republicans abandoned conservatism in the 1980s
