Krauthammer: Obama’s Inauguration Speech Was an "Ode to Big Government" That Declared the "End of Reaganism"
Following President Obama’s inauguration speech, Charles Krauthammer provided reaction to the address, which he believes will be considered historically important because it revealed “Obama unbound.”
He argued that in the address, the president declared “the end of Reaganism.”
In Reagan’s 1981 inaugural address, he changed the ideology of the country by declaring that “government is not the solution, government is the problem.”
Krauthammer said, “Today’s inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. This speech today was an ode to big government, it was a hymn to big government.”
He cited the president’s focus on climate change and civil rights.
“This speech was a declaration the era of big government is back,” Krauthammer said.
