    well...

    we saw TIME MAG's sardonic assessment a few posts up---barack hussein, the wannabe reagan

    here's ap TODAY:

    There's a new slogan in town, and it's a winner. At least that's what President Barack Obama has in mind. The president unveiled his "Winning the Future" mantra in his State of the Union address, and now the upbeat but amorphous phrase is part of every speech, policy and pronouncement coming out of the administration.

    What's next on health care? Where to go on energy and education policy? How to improve the jobs picture? It's all about winning the future through innovation and determination, Obama and his aides have argued over the past few days.

    "We've got to up our game," Obama told a crowd in Wisconsin. The nation must ensure "America is still on top" in a decade, the president said on YouTube. The country can't just lead, adds Vice President Joe Biden; it needs to "dominate."

    It's a juiced-up way for Obama to frame his initiatives after two years in which even some of the president's supporters acknowledge that can-do verve sometimes was lacking from the conversation. What it means, though, is still TBD — to be determined.

    It seems that just in time for the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth, Morning in America has arrived once again.

    the lady's look:

    Gone was the president who told the nation in his inaugural speech that it was “time to set aside childish things,” and who spent much of his first two years bemoaning the mess his predecessor had left. In his place was an upbeat and forward-looking Mr. Obama, serving up rosy economic news (“The stock market has come roaring back”) and lauding America’s greatness and can-do spirit. (“We do big things.”)

    It was perhaps no accident that Mr. Obama took Lou Cannon’s biography of that other optimist and purveyor of American exceptionalism, Ronald Reagan, with him to Hawaii over Christmas. Or that one of the Washington wise men the president consulted recently was Kenneth M. Duberstein, a chief of staff to President Reagan.

    is the lady implying the prez is churlish?

    we already saw time mag's take: modeling reagan

    and ap's: the can-do prez, details tbd

    elite analysis appears to have reached consensus---obama's agenda for 2011 as laid out in his sotu is essentially a bunch of empty happy talk

    the rest of nyt's perspective goes on for 2 pages pointing out the risk any optimist may take when times are bad

    ie, not real interesting, mere 2 + 2

    the point---the elites aint swallowing the gipper gambit

    aren't YOU about to gag from all this ronald reagan redux?

    i know reaganites sure are

    take care, stay up

    pray for ms giffords and her family, pray for the others violated

    remember our troops

    work hard, look out for your kids

    america will survive barack obama
