No, it probably doesn’t come from the banks or the tea partiers. The photo below which shows Ronald Reagan next to the words ‘Remember Real Hope & Change?’ probably comes from the same folks who posted the ‘Miss Me Yet?’ George W. Bush billboard (which ended up being a group of small business owners in Minnesota who feel Washington is against them).
This anonymous ad is on I-94 in the outskirts of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolis area, just outside of Albertville on the way from St. Cloud to Minneapolis.
Ed Morrissey, himself from Minnesota, notes the irony of the ad.
Ronald Reagan never won Minnesota in either of his two national elections, but clearly someone recalls him fondly. It’s not cheap to pay for this kind of advertising, and it would be interesting to discover who’s behind this one.
I guess people just wish it was morning again in America as President Reagan liked to say.
