    gets me about Reagan- and it doesn't bother me that much since we have Clinton and Obama- is how it always comes back to Ronnie these days.

    I'm 46 years old, so I was in 8th grade when Reagan was first elected.  I remember very little of that period. AND I'M A HUGELY OVEREDUCATED POLITICO.  There's no way the average voter under 50, and nobody under 40, remembers much about St. Ronnie.   When I hear Paul Ryan wax poorly about Carter or Reagan, I just shake my head.  Paul Ryan has absolutely no earthly idea about any detail in Reagan's presidency.  None.

    Reagan is a far away God object: immortal, omnipresent, omnipotent,  unknowable, unforgettable.

    From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

    •  I'm 55 and I remember. (1+ / 0-)

      I remember:
      Astronomical interest rates
      Massive home foreclosures
      Reagan Ranches (communities of people living under bridges)
      Steel mills closing
      Unemployment
      Union busting (starting with the air traffic controllers)

      I'm always surprised when people reminisce about the "Good ole Reagan days."

      I'm really glad you don't buy into the revisionist history of the Reagan years.

        What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
