Obama: Today’s GOP would reject Reagan
WASHINGTON – In combative campaign form, President Barack Obama accused Republican leaders Tuesday of becoming so radical and dangerously rigid that even the late Ronald Reagan, one of their most cherished heroes, could not win a GOP primary if he were running today.
Obama, in a stinging speech to an audience of news executives, had unsparing words for Republicans on Capitol Hill as well as the man he is most likely to face off against in November, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The president depicted the election as a choice between a Democratic candidate who wants to use government to help people succeed and Republicans who would abandon a basic compact with society and let most people struggle at the expense of the rich.
He framed his address around a new House Republican budget plan, saying it represents a bleak, backward “radical vision.”
