    That Reagan never exisited. It was a role he played and played it well. America bought it. He was playing the Clint Eastwood "Dirty Harry" role domestically and internationally. It made us feel good about being asses. It was an illusion. I and the citizens of California knew him for what he was because he unleashed his bad policies there first.

    •  Symbolic value matters tremendously. (3+ / 0-)

      The failure to effectively recognize and exploit that was one of the Democratic party's key failings over that 30 year conservative stretch.  We sneer because we think we see through Reagan's bullshit, but while we sneer, his bullshit is busy working.
