Comparative Analysis: Morning vs Mourning

As is from Monkey In The Middle

Mourning In America

Hat tip to Wake Up America

In 1984, the Reagan reelection campaign set the standard for modern political advertising with its fabled "Morning in America" series, which included one of the greatest political ads of all time -- "Better, Prouder, Stronger." The ad captured the zeitgeist -- America under President Reagan was coming back, full of optimism and confidence in the future.

Today, the zeitgeist is exactly the opposite. Americans are worried about their future, and about a government determined to implement policies that just don't work. But like its predecessor, "Mourning in America" offers a new hope -- if we can just get our government to return to time-tested policies that can spark a rebirth of liberty.

Thanks for the Hat Tip.

It has only been a little over a quarter of a century between the 2 videos, but look at the difference in what this nation has become.

Ronald Reagan we need you!

Sometimes it only seems like yesterday that Ronald Reagan was here but everytime I look at the Obama clan it seems like centuries... How much longer can we bear this burdem?
