All three major networks described Pres. Obama's State of the Union address as "Reaganesque," as this MRC video shows (Hat tip: GatewayPundit):

There are two clear issues with this characterization:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
So why is the MSM suddenly and uniformly praising Obama as Reaganesque? Since it seems unlikely to have happened spontaneously, it seems that they must have found a replacement for the now defunct JournoList.
