President Obama frequently says nice things about him.

I never believed for an instant that George W. Bush was reading all the books Karl Rove wanted us to think he was reading, so the “holiday Presidential reading list” genre always has to be taken with a grain of salt. But still…

Mr. Obama is reading the biography “President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime,” by Lou Cannon, aides said, and recently completed “The Clinton Tapes,” by Taylor Branch, who chronicled the 42nd president through a series of private interviews.

Ay-yi-yi.

I don’t know about the Clinton book, but here’s the book Obama should be reading about Ronald Reagan.
