    Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels elicited several hushed gasps and raised eyebrows late last week as he lectured a
    AP
    conservative crowd that it was “time to let Ronald Reagan go.”

    The governor delivered his remarks to a room full of fellow red-staters at the Fund for American Studies’ annual conference and donor retreat at the Newseum.

    “Nostalgia is fine and Reagan’s economic plan was good,” Daniels said. “But we need to look towards the future rather than staying in the past.” Daniels added that the GOP needed to work on uniting behind Sen. John McCain instead of constantly comparing the Arizona senator with the Gipper.

    While he prefaced his remarks with the disclaimer that his thoughts were “somewhat controversial,” he hoped that he “would not be misunderstood.”

    Incidentally, applause was somewhat less enthusiastic as he left the stage than when he began by poking fun at Barack Obama.

    He's probably got the right idea, but the old saying goes something like "an elephant never forgets".

    I don't personally see what's so great about Reagan. He's always referred to as some type of icon of conservatism, but if you ask me, he left a lot to be desired.

    He was a better actor as president than he was an actor as an actor.

    When you can read and project as well as he did, people assume you must be the great constipator or whatever they called him.

    Yeah, now that's the approach that is going to win us over….whatta dumbshit.

    The only reason that Juan McPain the RINO looks even remotely appealing is that he's up against one of the most far left liberals ever spawned by the Democrat Socialists....

    ...but then maybe Hill the Pill will be the medicine to swallow…..:lol:

    My interpretation of Smeagle's logic:

    Hmmmm? A war hero, a black guy or a broad??

    Come on now, that's a no brainer!!!

    Looks like whining eagle is having another bad day....

    I still find it amusing that someone who's never done anything for his country or anyone else can't manage to use people's proper names simply because they disagree with his ignorant little constructs....

    What a maroon... :cuckoo:
