"Tear down those taxcuts for the rich!"Does anyone out there recall President Ronald Reagan promoting trillion dollar spending bills, appeasing enemies, slashing defense spending, raising taxes on the rich, expanding the welfare state, redistributing wealth, funding foreign abortions, and promoting socialized medicine?White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the Barack Obama will give a Reaganesque speech tonight to Congress.The Politico reported:
President Barack Obama won’t speak until prime-time, but his aides fanned out to the morning shows Tuesday morning to talk up his first speech before a joint session of Congress. And the word they used to preview it: “Reaganesque.” “The president believes very clearly that we have to be honest with the American people about where we are,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He will,” Gibbs said, “tell the country that we’ve faced … greater challenges than the ones we face now, but we as Americans always meet those challenges. But in the Reaganesque words, there are always better days ahead.” Good luck with that.Unfortunately, Gibbs and Democrats forget that Reagan was much more than a great speaker.Reagan actually got results.President Reagan's taxcuts and economic reform resulted in the largest peacetime economic boom in American history and nearly 35 million more jobs.
