There are two clear issues with this characterization:
- Obama babbled on about the importance of having big government decide which industries win (mostly "green" energy) and which will lose (oil, for example) in keeping with a command-and-control approach to the economy. This is the opposite of Reaganesque.
- These journalist who are now praising Obama as "Reaganesque" are the same journalists who, when he was president, hated Reagan with the same passion that they now hate Sarah Palin.
