The laughable propaganda comparing Obama and Reagan

You can tell that Barack Obama is in trouble when his minions and media lickspittles try to compare him to Ronald Reagan, whom he disparaged in the first of his two ghostwritten autobiographies. His aides had him photographed carrying around a book about Reagan, and spread the word that he was learning from the Gipper.

Obama, who earlier refused to acknowledge American exceptionalism as any different from the feeling of Greeks or Brits about their nations, is now trying to rebrand himself as optimistic ("We do big things" -- SOTU, 2011), a builder of a more prosperous America, leader of the world (because we are going down the Spanish path of forcing investment in uneconomic power supply and "high speed" rail).

The latest outrage is that his friends at TIME magazine have put a photoshopped picture of Obama and Reagan together on the cover of their magazine for next week. It was introduced on MSNBC this morning, but is as yet unavailable elsewhere.

This calls to mind TIME's previous attempt to photoshop Obama into Reagan

Now that Obama is turning a downturn into a Depression, just like FDR, the comparison is less flattering.

For my money, The best visual commentary on Obama and Reagan comes from cartoonists Albin mSarad and Robert DeClaire (below):
