    True fact: The Tea Parties of 2010 would despise Reagan as a RINO or something similar.

    That is there opinion what their father would do. Perhaps we should rez the guy and ask him himself what he thinks but we can't do that so we will never know. Isn't that ashame?

    You really should have learned by now to be able to spot the difference between a 'true fact' (and what, I wonder is a 'false fact'?) and an opinion. Then you would realize just how stupid your post is.

    Reagan would never embrace the tea party movement.
    Ronnie embraced evangelicals but was known as very tolerant for his time. He was often known to tell the most outrageous and nastiest jokes, avoided the gay and abortion issues like the plague and hung with the Hollywood crowd.
    One of the most unusual and contradictory things in this area of religion is how high Regan is held in such high esteem and how Carter is scorned. But that is the Republican double standard. Reagan was divorced yet was held up by "conservatives" as the "family values" President while Carter, a man devoted to a Christian life from birth by actions and service, was labeled something worse than a crawling worm by "family values" associations and Republicans.
    Republicans are a dysfunctional lot more so now than ever.
    I am surprised the tea party movement has not started to sell mountable statues of Reagan for automobile dashes.
    They have to do something to pay Sarah.

    Yeah let's do something constructive like arguing over what a dead guy might think.

    Stupid.

    Reagan wouldn't be Conservative enough for today's modern "Conservative."
