By today's 'tea-party' standards, yes, undoubtedly.

Sorry we don't have the masses of maniacs to powder each other's you know what's. Things that are against your mindset hurt your feelings huh? Reagan would be laughed out of your party today, yet you hold him up as a god.

Forget them, the 'new' right wing.

Reagan was a great politician because he kept alot of things close to the vest. That, and back then, one still kept religion and politics at at least an arms length.

Reagan was for sure a Republican, but was very much a man of the times, he was a diplomat and knew how to work with various parties / factions, etc. to get results. If that meant straying from his parties principles, then so be it.

This TEA party citizen wouldn't vote him out in favor of some typical leftwing marxist douschebag.

Whatever Regean was or wasn't, he wasn't a liberal progressive with a communist leaning.

A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. As the Tower board reported, what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages. This runs counter to my own beliefs, to administration policy, and to the original strategy we had in mind.
Reagan didn't even know what he was himself. How can one expect anyone else to know?

This is the same logic the left used to get behind Obama. Are you trying to rationalize your own misbegotten vote?

Reagan did one good thing, He fired the air traffic controllers that went on strike. He gave them 48 hours to go back to work, they didn't so he fired them. Bet obammy wouldn't have the guts to do that. He'd cave to the unions before they even made a demand. He owes way too much to the unions to stand up to them.

By the looks of this list he owes a lot more to WallStreet. The evil unions again!
