The GOP, Ronald Reagan and Obama

We have heard every single Republican who has run for office in the last twenty years mention or claim to be inspired by Ronald Reagan. They talk about it with honor and pride. They all try to claim a little piece of the Reagan Empire as their own and it's so great to watch them try to come up with new names to call the Reagan era. McCain's is the best.

"I was a foot-soldier in the Reagan Revolution."

As many presidential historians have been discussing for months, this campaign is eerily similar to 1980. We have an established insider who has the conventional attributes of an American president and then we have this new face; a challenger.

This video captures that sentiment.
