Perhaps we’ve been wrong all this time about President Obama.
Maybe – just maybe – he really has been as great a president as the late American icon, Ronald Reagan.
Obama has frequently compared himself to Reagan throughout his presidency. Even before that, then-Senator Obama compared his campaign in the Spring of 2008 to that of Reagan, saying the former president had also ushered in an era of hope and change.
“Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not, and a way that Bill Clinton did not,” Obama said. “He put us on a fundamentally different path.”
Obama is right – as this hilarious cartoon proves:
More recently, he compared his outrageous nuclear deal with Iran to the successes of Reagan during the Cold War.
“I have lots of differences with Ronald Reagan,” he stated, “but where I completely admire him was his recognition that if you were able to verify agreements that you would negotiate with the evil empire.”
The following political cartoon however, gives us the only true similarity between Reagan and Obama – the ability to tear down a once great nation. Any guesses as to who Reagan took down, as opposed to Obama?
