    Interesting role reversal......

    "There's a contradiction here for the GOP, too: At the same time that some Republicans complain that Barack Obama does not believe in -- or care about -- American exceptionalism, they ding the president when he speaks of America's moral responsibilities in the world. And, as a result, some more hawkish Republicans worry, the party looks inconsistent -- and, even worse, weak. "From the party's point of view, the biggest disaster would be to let Barack Obama become Ronald Reagan and our people become Jimmy Carter," Sen. Lindsey Graham told The Hill newspaper."

    That's what's happening.
    And Bush Jr. is Jimmy Carter.
    The Bush recession elected Obama.
    The Carter recession elected Reagan.
