Viewer Voices: Obama's Reagan remarks
WASHINGTON -- In combative campaign form, President Barack Obama accused Republican leaders on Tuesday of becoming so radical and dangerously rigid that even the late Ronald Reagan, one of their most cherished heroes, could not win a GOP primary if he were running today.
"Ronald Reagan, who, as I recall, is not accused of being a tax-and-spend socialist, understood repeatedly that when the deficit started to get out of control -- that for him to make a deal -- he would have to propose both spending cuts and tax increases," Obama said. "He could not get through a Republican primary today."
