Obama got the best teleprompter joke in at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

He's by no means as Teflon coated as Reagan was... I've heard criticism on both sides of the aisle, some of it deserved. Bill Mahrer went off on him for being wishy washy. It's bunk, but his critics won't hear it.

Keep in mind that when we think of Reagan now, we think more of the Legend of Reagan than of the actual Reagan.

what, the Reagan whose bluster had the Politburo convinced we actually would order a first strike and who's CIA wrote a Terrorism Handbook?

Reagan did some good things and some bad things. He's more popular than he deserves, though, in my opinion.

Every once in a while, I'll reread my old Tom Toles books. Scary how many of the political cartoons were applicable in subsequent administrations.
