    That's too bad I like Ronnie and don't think he was a bigot.

    Off topic but if you ever get a chance to see the Killers which Reagan, Lee Marvin, John Cassavetes and others are in do so. Totally underrated movie and Ronnie was awesome as a villain.

    He made his mistakes like they all do but I thought he was a good president, he did play in some good movies..

    I thought it was comical they way his enemy's hated his funeral.

    You have a bad memory, when he was president his own party did not even like him towards the end.. when he started chasing butterflies, then they made him into a god...

    Remember these events..

    IDK Darryl ... when Carter started looking good again I figure it is what it is.

    People tend to forget the bad ... then again maybe the bad was not bad at all ... who knows?

    Reagan is considered by many to be one of the best presidents of modern history. No president, or person, is without faults. That being said, distorting Reagans legacy shouldn't come as a surprise. Just wait until 10-20+ years from now when they make movie about Obama, and everyone is left wondering if they were alive at the same time all those "awesome" things happened.

    This country is becoming so screwed up that by the time they make a movie about "The Great Messiah Obama" anybody who doesn't go and see the movie will be sent to prison.

    Plans are already being made by MSNBC, ABC,CBS,PBS, NPR and Oprah to have Obama put up on Mt Rushmore.

    It's not hard to figure out that Reagan was one of the best, all you have to do is look at the Hatred the left wing has for him.

    Before anybody starts on me, I don't "Hate" Jug Ears it just messes up my mind as to how the hell the people ever elected him in the first place...:confused::confused:

    Maybe if your party could put up anything other than hot garbage he wouldn't have won...twice.

    Well McCain and Romney were certainly garbage, as is their opponent. ;)

    Honestly I'm rooting for Ted Cruz in 2016. That would be a dream come true.

    I love when people say this. While it may certainly be true, the same point could be made about JFK, or even Bill Clinton, and today's democratic party. My point is that neither party is representative of what it used to be. That's not a good thing either.

    How so?

    And no, Bill Clinton would be fine in today's Democratic party.

    Anyway, the evidence shows (at least in the HoR) that the GOP has shifted much further to the right since Reagan than the Democrats have moved to the left. You could argue the Democratic party has become marginally more liberal (I don't really see it, but whatever), but the rightward shift in the GOP has been markedly more pronounced.

    I was going to say the same RW but figured anyone with two brain cells to rub together would see it as obvious.

    JFK, Clinton, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt all say Hello

    Lincoln doesn't really belong on your list, unless you're one of those people who believe the Republicans freed the slaves.

    I don't know where you get off saying Clinton wouldn't be welcomed in today's Democratic party. You realize he spoke at the 2012 convention, right?

    My point is that Lincoln would be closer to modern day Democrats than he would be modern day Republicans. And Clinton would be closer to center than far left (the direction the party has moved).

    Never said anything about "Welcomed".

    Extrapolating analysis...you need a refresher I think.
