Barack Obama Biography

Barack Obama Biography, (AFP) – As the U.S. prepares to mark 100 years since the birth of the conservative icon Ronald Reagan, the besieged President Barack Obama aims to tap into the political magic of his deceased predecessor.
Shortly after what Obama described as his November elections’ shellacking, “the White House trumpeted that it was read a biography of Ronald Reagan, who occupied the White House from 1981 to 1989 and died in 2004.
Like Reagan, Obama swept to power on a wave of political euphoria, promising to restore optimism in the United States and revive a sputtering economy – and then suffered a defeat in midterm elections two years later supplied by the high unemployment.
But Reagan has roared back in a landslide reelection in 1984 romp through an economic boom that has led voters agree with him that they were better off than they were four years earlier and that it was “morning in America.”
The actor-turned-political-prophet supporters credit him with bringing the Soviet Union, reining in government out of American control, and to rekindle the company of Americans and the sense of the overall objective.
Barry Goldwater was the first. A few years ago her granddaughter liberal produced a documentary in which almost all the evidence has been leading the Liberals like Hillary Clinton and James Carville. Almost overnight, the man LBJ cast as a hate-filled demagogue who condemns the world to nuclear war became a kind grandfather and avuncular sage. In the memory hole has one of the most despicable campaign of demonization politics in American history. Even Sarah Palin has not been an ad in The New York Times signed by more than 1,000 psychiatrists saying she is too crazy to be president (though I do not want to give anyone ideas).
Then there was William F. Buckley, the founder of National Review magazine, I call home. For over four decades, Buckley has been subjected to a conviction for his alleged extremism. Jack Paar (Johnny Carson / Jay Leno’s time for you young people) was among the first of many to try to paint like a Nazi Buckley. Now, Sam Tanenhaus, editor of the section of the New York Times Book Review, is writing a biography of Buckley, insists that the mission of the life of the bill was to increase liberalism.
But it’s Ronald Reagan that really stands out. As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth, the Gipper still faces another update status among liberals. Barack Obama took a Reagan biography with him on vacation. A bunch of liberals and mainstream journalists (but I repeat myself) commended the State of Obama’s address to the Union as “Reaganesque.” Time Magazine recently featured the cover article “Why Obama (Hearts) Reagan. “Meanwhile, the usual suspects are rewriting the same columns about how Reagan was a pragmatist who could not run for president today because he was too nice, too reasonable, too (shudder) liberal for the Republican Party today.
Now, on the one hand, there is something wonderful about the overflowing love Reagan. When Presidents resign or die, their party affiliation is cleared and, for larger, eventually decays. Reagan was a truly great president, one of the largest according to historians, even liberal, like the late John Patrick Diggins. As you can tell from the gnashing of teeth and rending of cloth from the extreme left, Lionize Reagan is a great victory for the right and the Conservatives should welcome more of it.
On the other hand, it is not welcome is almost an airbrush Soviet past to serve the agenda of today’s liberalism. For starters, if the Liberals will celebrate Reagan, they could try to take account of the fact that they fought each of his movements, alternating between ridicules and slander in the process. As Steven Hayward, author of the two-volume history The Age of Reagan, demand in the current National Review, “Who can forget the relentless scorn heaped on Reagan’s speech” evil empire “and the Strategic Defense initiative? ” Hayward notes that historian Henry Steele Commager said the “evil empire” speech “was the worst presidential speech in American history, and I read them all.”
