Barack Hussein Obama is absolutely NO Ronald Wilson Reagan! Reagan loved this country and her people. Obama shows nothing but contempt for both. The difference between the two could not be more extreme! Day and night! Good and evil! Reagan was a leader. Obama is an arrogant, spoiled brat. It’s DEFINITELY time for a change, so we can get back our hope!
