Krauthammer: Obama Has Always Aspired to Be the 'Anti-Reagan'
Charles Krauthammer tonight sounded off on comparisons between President Barack Obama and former President Ronald Reagan.
Obama’s former campaign manager Jim Messina said Wednesday that “President Obama in many ways has helped start the same kind of political evolution that Reagan did 30 years ago.”
Krauthammer said that it’s not a fair comparison, remarking that Obama just had a good week and is being “a little bit cocky about it.”
“He has always had the ambition of being the anti-Reagan,” Krauthammer said of the president, recalling that Obama said in 2008 that Reagan was historically consequential.
Krauthammer noted that ObamaCare has changed the nation, calling the health care law “the most consequential legislation in a generation.” But Krauthammer said that if ObamaCare fails, it will mean the end of “Obamaism.”
