Reaganism:

And now they are throwing around Reagan’s name when referring to Obama. The Media loves to compare his ‘happy hour’ with the Republicans to the many meetings that President Reagan had with Tip O’Neil. The Media loves to point out that Obama understands that you have to ‘schmooze’ the other side to legislate effectively. The problem with that comparison is that Reagan never had the House on his side. He was never even as close as 50 seats. He had to compromise with Tip O’Neil to get things done. Obama has all of Congress and doesn’t need to compromise.
