President Obama Reads Reagan... Why?

From the known history of the Obama administration, what do you believe would be the purpose of Whitehouse press secretary Robert Gibbs informing Americans that President Obama is reading "President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime", during his Hawaiian vacation? (source ABC Blog).

I wonder what he plans to learn from it... Optimism? Voodoo economics? Leadership? How to be reelected in 2012?

I believe this is an attempt to soften up the 112th Congress and independent voters with a fake move to the center now that he does not have a GOP proof congress. The shellacking he took in November no doubt has caused him to reassess how he will further his agenda. But I doubt their will much in the way of change in the borrowing, spending and nationalization that he desires.

The pundits have already characterized the President's support for the tax extension compromise as a move to the center, so this marketing scheme isn't really necessary.

Dear Mr. President.

Please do not bother with the Reagan book. You won't understand it and the Republicans in congress have already shown that they cannot stand up to any criticism from anyone. They cave on fundamental issues that conservatives know they should be stopping in its tracks such as DADT, your New START treaty, and the tax rates extension.

Thank you for your support.

Another Un-American Program From The Obama Administration.

My co-worker alerts me this story at the Raw Story, Homeland Security ‘messages’ coming to Walmart, hotels, malls
"Shoppers at Walmart will soon have something other than glossy magazines and chewing gum to look at when in the checkout line: A "video message" from the Department of Homeland Security asking them to look out for "suspicious" activity and report it immediately."

Welcome Walmart shoppers. You now have Big Sis* to greet you at the check-out.

Hey, maybe they will implement the technology to see what you are buying and advise you about safety or better deals. You know, for your good.

In 1995 I went on a MIA recovery mission to Vietnam. The communist government broadcast propaganda over their public address system that had speakers on most telephone poles around the city.

What else can this government do?

and it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for......
