    Why do intelligent and educated people say the right will one day embrace Obama as an iconic American conservative figure? :eusa_whistle:

    We all know how devious and calculating Obama is. Obama studied Reagan.
    nuff said---almost

    So here is the logic of O's plan: Just as the right was upset with Reagan both during his two terms in office and immediately after he left office, they later embrace Reagan as an iconic conservative figure. This was because of what transpired after he left office.

    The GOP & runaway deficits.
    American conservative icons like Reagan get credit for setting things in motion, not credit for getting anything accomplished during tenure. The things they've actually promised to do take commitement, time and effort, and following through on these things is not as important to great iconic figures as the end result of the actions of others, years later.

    These things that happen, these things that make people like Reagan and Obama iconic American conservative figures, are the seemingly broken promises that eventually come to fruition (often years or decades later), things that are often enacted by, embraced by, and followed through on---caused to become reality---by the actions of mostly political opponents of American conservativism.

    Sure, sure, sure...American conservative leaders appear to whine about and assault these figures during their terms in office or positions of leadership, and during these figure's lifetimes, it may appear the rightist agenda is being stiffed, but the end results of the failed policies and broken promises of great men like Reagan and Obama can only be seen in hindsight, after the right gets to attribute and the world sees that the actions of political opponents of conservatism are actually the actions of dupes and tools of the great conservative agenda.


    now all we know that people from the ideologically challenged think tank Heritage Foundation, keep saying things like "In the 20 years following Reagan’s tax cuts,"-notice the emphasis is always on things like 20 years a-f-t-e-r Reagan left office.


    ....break time......

    :cool:

    "Why the right will one day embrace Obama as an iconic conservative figure" - Devnell

    Outside of waterboarding us, I can't think of any reason at all. I dare say Al Gore waterboarding me might not be enough. Al Gore waterboarding me at the 2010 Climate Conference in Mexico. Al Gore waterboarding me at the 2010 Climate Conference in Mexico while Obama announces a $100b. commitment to third world countries, handing me my $750 penalty for not having health insurance.

    So Al Gore gets your panties all in a bunch? What else is new? Reagan was hated by many on the right and he was tolerated because he was not Carter or Kennedy or any other Dem. Reagan was a huge dissapointment to forgien policy hawks and fiscal conservatives and other conservatives during his terms and immediatley following them.

    Only after Reagan leaves office do we get cons praising the co-star of a fuckin' stupid monkey as a great conservative icon. But the co-star of a fuckin' stupid monkey is an apt image of Reagan as a conservative. All mouth and little brains.

    Dev, you fucking retard.

    You're using an opinion peace from the San Fran Chronicle, and presenting it as an objective piece of journalism, written by "intelligent, educated" ppl, as if that somehow means they aren't far left nutjobs.

    Whenever a partisan says "intelligent, educated" it is code for "far left elitist crapface."

    yeah and you chose to ignore the facts...like the grand father of the latest round of GOP cons called Reagan a useful idiot before he said he was a great conservative. maybe they are one and the same...useful idiots and great conservative?
