The Neo-Reagan Era is Dead!Submitted by rogerfgay on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 12:49
Ronald Reagan said this. Ronald Reagan said that. In the spirit of Ronald Reagan, how many times can a Republican politician repeat Ronald Reagan's name during a campaign? Anybody know the record? I've been trying to make the point for probably at least a decade now. Through two presidential election cycles, the major players seem to be the last to get the point. The Neo-Reagan Era is Dead! We need to bury its disciples to allow the Republican Party to get a life.
Reagan's political victories during the last century are non-transferable. He was a successful politician back then, not a saint that defined American politics for the next thousand years. Yet, the old guard in the Republican Party seems to want to kick Reagan around in his grave the same way the Communists pulverized Marx. And now we're also seeing the same kind of refusal to give up power, along with cheating, bullying, and violence when the strategy doesn't work.
