    When comparing two American President's speeches commemorating the anniversary of the D-Day Invasion, we see the wide expanse between a President, and a Pretender.

    Ronald Reagan's 40th Anniversary D-Day speech remains a shining example of the right president, sharing the right words, at the right time.

    The sincerity of Reagan's presentation is clear.

    Obama on the other hand, appears far more robotic, uncertain. He is not comfortable wrapping himself in the achievement of America. His words ring hollow, too rehearsed, and like so many of Obama's declarations, turning once again to him personally, attempting to make the moment about himself, and not about those whose actions are being remembered.


    America knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a friend of America. Mr. Obama, you're no Ronald Reagan....

    Reagan wouldn't recognize this GOP
    The Gipper may be the patron saint of Limbaugh and Coulter, but he'd be amazed at what's been done in his name.

    In my mind's eye, I can see Ronald Reagan, wearing wings and a Stetson, perched on a cloud and watching all the goings-on down here in his old earthly home. Laughing, rolling his eyes and whacking his forehead over the absurdities he sees, he's watching his old political party as it twists itself into ever more complex knots, punctuated only by pauses to invoke the Gipper's name. It's been said that God would be amazed by what his followers ascribe to him; believe me, Reagan would be similarly amazed by what his most fervent admirers cite in their desire to be seen as true-blue Reaganites.

    I turned that crap off when Sarkozy compared the epic Overlord battle with gullible warming.

    I couldn't imagine Barry Sotereo Obolshevik's speech being any better than that or any more than another litany of the other inane vagaries that are the hallmarks of his other speeches.

    :lol: Ronald Reagan was no Ronald Reagan either. Nice man but a script reader and sometimes he didn't even get that right.

    Just check out the differences in those two speeches.

    Reagan is head and shoulders above Obama - the difference in the presentation is astounding.

    Reagan is assured emotion, the perfect balance of respectful remembrance and hope for a continued and prosperous future.

    Obama comes off far more scripted - far too aware of the eyes that are on him and trying vainly to appear presidential.

    Reagan simply was presidential, and carried the office so much more easily.
