    I was already in my mid 20's when Reagan was elected. I wasn't very politically engaged at the time but I still had strong negative feelings and distrust of republicans from the Nixon era. I do remember that lots of Democrats who moved to the suburbs, including some from my own family became enamored with Regan enough to give him a clear victory when he first ran.

    I remember the ensuing years of his presidency left me wondering how people were claiming to have become so successful. I still remember with sick negativity the rise of yuppie culture and the all the larval stages of modern-day nutbaggery.

    So to equating Obama with Reagan really doesn't work for me. My scars are too deep. No thanks.
