  •  Meh, Republicans (0+ / 0-)

    Reagan was awful.  The reason he is revered by the right is because he was the one who started the union busting, media consolidation, military expansion, fundamentalist religious influence on the workings of government, liberal bashing, trickle down economics, and all the other shit that makes the modern GOP.  In short, he started, and won, the war against the middle class and the poor, and showed Republicans how they could get people to vote against their own interests, and cheer about it.

    Now, thirty-plus years of Reaganism has nearly decimated this country, and yet nearly 50% of the people are still conned by it.  Unless, and until, the Republican party is made obsolete by voters awakening, the ghost of Reagan will continue to haunt us.
