Barack, S.O.S. Thom Hartmann Immediately for His Anti-Reagan Talking Points

Barack Obama made the biggest political blunder...ever!  Invoking the name of Ronald Reagan in what sounded like a good way.

Bigger than admitting drug use; bigger than admitting sexual transgressions; bigger than having been married multiple times; bigger than allowing a city to pay for your mistress' expenses.  Bigger than big.

There's a lot to be said for answering a question honestly, but answering that one honestly was as naive and unthinking of the consequences as when a husband, who's absorbed in his own thoughts, answers 'yes' after his wife asks 'does this dress make me look fat?'

In spite of the talking idiot heads on Hardball yesterday, who said Obama's Reagan comments won't hurt him, his statements are going to haunt him and all Democrats until election day and beyond.

The Republicans are spinning at their most feverish, dizzying pace to use Obama's words against him.

Can't you hear it?  Obama endorses Reagan as the greatest force of change, ever!

I knew what Obama was saying, he just didn't say it correctly.  He was being too politically correct. He should have said:

 Ronald Reagan was the greatest evil force of change. The malevolent political changes he wrought was Robin Hood in reverse.  He unleashed the rich to steal from the poor, and single-handedly shot the middle class in the head, not killing them, but leaving them to die a slow death. Reagan did the same thing to the unions, while opening the door for the mega-corporations to take over the country and the world. 

He should have added that it's the biggest national myth that Reagan had anything to with the demise of the Soviet Union or the downing of the Berlin Wall.  Both fell due to economics.

Reagan also signed the biggest amnesty bill for illegal aliens in history until George Bush came along, but that's for another discussion.

Even if Obama had invoked the dreaded name of Reagan in an un-PC way, the Republicans would take it out of context and still use it to their advantage.

Obama needs to S.O.S. Thom Hartmann immediately if not sooner. 

I've never heard anyone detail a list of Reagan's sins against the country as well as Hartmann does on his radio show.

Thom, whether Obama asks for your talking points or not, fax them to every one of his campaign offices now.  Please!
