President Obama, though no fan of Ronald Reagan’s policies, spoke during his 2008 campaign and during the early days of his new administration about wanting to emulate the 40th president’s impact on American politics.

An article from Sierra Rayne at the American Thinker website shows how far short of the mark the 44th president has fallen. Perhaps the most interesting element is a series of charts that show the contrast between Reagan’s and Obama’s records.
