Obama and a majority of the D party elite will fall all over themselves to praise Reagan.

They refuse to investigate or prosecute the blatant crimes of the Cheney/Bush regime.

They refuse to investigate or prosecute the financial criminals (who gave lots of money to the Obama campaign) and Banskters who crashed the economy. Instead of jail cells, they recieved trillions in TARP and QE 1 and 2 monies from the Treasury and Fed.

The country is being run by and for the criminal Kleptocratic Oligarchy.

This much ought to be clear, yet it is deemed to inflamatory - even for so-called progressive audiences.

Obama is continuing the neo-liberal economic policies of Reagan, GWB and the Chicago boys seamlesssly, with much better rhetoric, spin and PR management skill. (credit is due here)

As for foreign policy, one could easily make the case that Obama is worse than Reagan. Just take a look at all the war appropriations bills, DOD budgets, military aid packages, and security state budgets that he has signed. The largest outlay in the histroy of the world.

Reagan seems like a lightweight in comparison.
