Today, The Drudge Report ran a headline ("I'm Here To Fix It") about Pres. Obama's promise to Hurricane Sandy victims in New York, and it reminded me of Pres. Reagan's famous warning.

"We've got some work to do and I want you to know I'm here to do it," Pres. Obama promised while standing in front of a church in storm-torn New York, The Weekly Standard reports in its article titled, "Obama, In Front Of Church Devastated By Sandy: 'I'm Here' To Fix It."

Both headlines reminded me of Pres. Ronald Reagan's famous warning to Americans about the dangers of government "help":

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
