Really? Would it change your point of view at all if he said he was going to take away all the stuff you want, but then says he cares about them?
Frankly, I'll take that over Obama castigating those rubes who don't know what's best for themselves because they cling to their guns even with the obligatory "I care about their welfare nevertheless".
I don't agree with Reaganomics, but I think he was much closer to Obama in terms of saying I care about people with whom I neither identify nor agree. Reagan either believed or tried to sell (I'm inclined to say the former) that trickle down economics benefited everyone. Romney comes pretty close to saying if you're poor, fvck you. I would probably vote against both Reagan and Romney, but I find it easier to support and respect Reagan, agree with him or not, than I do Romney.
