Citizens United: Mr. Obama, You’re No Reagan

By Jim Meyers   |   Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 05:50 PM

The conservative organization Citizens United has launched a video in response to a new Time magazine cover story comparing President Barack Obama with Ronald Reagan, with the point: “There is no comparison.”

The video contrasts several Reagan statements against those of Obama, including:

Reagan: “It is time for us to realize that we’re too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams.”
“My country has not perfected itself.”

Reagan: “America is the land of the free because she is the home of the brave.”
“In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world.”

Citizens United has produced a documentary, “Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny,” hosted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista.

The organization was also the plaintiff in the case that resulted in the Jan. 21, 2010, Supreme Court decision overturning the provision of McCain-Feingold barring corporations and unions from paying for political ads made independently of candidate campaigns.
