Michael Reagan: Obama's Speeches Have No Feeling

By    |   Thursday, 25 Sep 2014 01:08 PM

President Barack Obama should take a page from President Ronald Reagan's book about leading the country without feeling the need to alert the world in advance or seek permission from the United Nations, political commentator Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Regan, said Thursday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"He took action abroad but he didn't hold press conferences to tell everybody the action he was going to take abroad, whether it was going into Grenada, whether it was going into Tripoli in the middle of the night with a couple of F-14s and what have you," Reagan said.
"He did what was right for America. He didn't do it because it was politically correct, he did it because it was correct for America and correct for the freedom of Americans and to protect American citizens, if you will."

Obama, like so many modern day politicians, has become hyper focused on political correctness, according to Reagan.

"There's too many politicians today who don't listen to their heart," he said. "They listen to their consultant. We've been so over-consulted in this country that that is the problem with the country. If I were president of the United States, I'd sign an executive order firing every consultant in America and let politicians be who they are.

"Speak from the heart, speak to me in parables, tell me what you really feel about America. Don't tell me what your stupid consultant feels about America. Tell me what you feel about America and then go out there and be a president, be a congressman, be a senator, be a janitor, but speak to me from your heart, not from the consultant."

Leadership requires leading, Reagan said.

"I don't know why we got to a point where we think every time the Americans do something we have to pick up the phone and call the United Nations to get permission to be president of the United States, get permission to do something to protect Americans," said Reagan.

He described the United Nations as "a group of people in New York who are in a building they can't even get together to vote to bring the building up to code."

"And we're calling them and saying, hey, can I be president of the United States? Will you listen to me? Balderdash. Go be president of the United States of America. If you lead, trust me, they'll follow."


Once considered a great orator, Obama speaks with "no feeling to the message, just a message," according to Reagan.

"It's getting up and reading a book," he said. "There's no feeling to it."

Reagan also briefly weighed in on the announcement of Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation, calling for a collective "Hallelujah!"

"I mean he's been there a little bit too long," said Reagan. "My question is, is the world now going to be a safer place now that he will be gone than it has been with him at the helm? Will conservatives now be free to do business without the fear of the federal government looking into their very lives?

"There's a lot of hallelujahs going up this morning from conservatives and anybody who pays taxes in the United States of America at this point in time because he certainly hasn't been a friend of the working class American. He's been a friend of God knows who, but certainly not us."
