Oh, brother: MSNBC’s Scarborough says Michelle Obama ‘reminds me of Ronald Reagan’

Michelle Obama’s speech at the opening night of the Democratic National Convention prompted a gush-fest in the liberal media.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough went so far as to say it should be placed “in the pantheon of great speeches” and that it “reminded me of Ronald Reagan.”

“I don’t know that Michelle Obama would appreciate that, what I’m about to say,” Scarborough said, “but her optimism and her hope reminded me of Ronald Reagan, who could talk about all of the problems that we were having and then look right at the audience, but always end by saying, I believe that America’s greatest days truly do lie ahead. Despite all the problems that we are facing as a country, despite all of the problems that we have in our economy, despite all of the challenges across the globe, we are Americans. Look where we have been. Look where we are. Look where we are going.”

Scarborough was not done though, as he continued his adulation.

“And Michelle Obama, again, like Barack Obama in 2004, like Ronald Reagan in 1984, like Ronald Reagan in 1980, she spoke the truth!” he said. “We are the last best hope for a dying world. And if you can’t get behind that message as a Republican or a Democrat, then let me buy you a ticket to another country. Because we are the greatest country on the face of the Earth. And I’m proud of where we are and where we’ve been.”
