“It’s baffling to me that Obama would speak so favorably about President Reagan.”
– Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), speaking on a conference call sponsored by the Clinton campaign.
“Her list of favorite presidents – Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Truman, George H.W. Bush and Reagan – demonstrates how she thinks.”

P.S. The Clinton campaign is now saying that she was “only complimented President Reagan’s communications skills – an attribute of his that has been widely praised by Americans of all ideological stripes.” Including, for instance, Obama, whom her campaign has attacked all day for doing so. Better hypocrisy, please.
