Saint Ronnie

About that "bullet-proof" majority the Democrats enjoy in Congress? Here's how much it's worth - today President Obama "proudly" signed the "Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission" act, establishing a commission which "will plan and carry out activities to honor Ronald Reagan on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth, and will also provide assistance to federal, state, and local governmental agencies and civic groups to carry out such activities."

The vote on the bill in that Democratic-dominated Congress? 371-19 in the House, and "unanimous consent" in the Senate. Exactly 19 members of Congress could be mustered to protest the outrage of honoring one of the worst Presidents ever, a man who, among his many other sins, described both the Contras fighting the progressive Sandinista government in Nicaragua as well as the mujahedin (including Osama bin Laden) fighting a progressive government in Afghanistan as "the moral equivalent of our founding fathers."

Obama's praise of Reagan today came as no surprise to me, as he had explicitly praised Reagan during his campaign for President.
