    Reagan & Conservatives -- Revisonist History 101
    1988: Reagan Abandoned, Mocked by Hardline Conservatives

    This is why the GOP lost in 2008 and 2012: They are living in a past that never existed, just like Reagan did. Reagan raised taxes, grew government, backed socialist programs, and more. When a political party lives on myth, sooner or later it all just collapses into a warm pile of shit

    So it was Reagan's becoming more liberal towards the Soviets, that brought about Reagan's deals with the Soviets, that led to a warming of the cold war and the end of the Soviets' hostility distrust of the west and the USA

    How Republicans created the myth of Ronald Reagan
    With the Gipper's reputation flagging after Clinton, neoconservatives launched a stealthy campaign to remake him as a "great" president.

    Taj, information can be power. Information that is powerful often elicits responses like yours and that of whitlesshall

    dispute one fact if you dare

    someday you will be worthy enough to challenge in the Bull Ring. Until then, learn to earn credibility by disputing facts:eusa_whistle:

    To those who might stumble into this thread through curiosity, we ask only one thing...

    notice when ideologues and tools attack yet offer no refutation or argument.

    Reagan left office about as popular as anyone in history. Why on earth would he worry about his enshrined legacy? I can see the desperation in his detractors a quarter of a century after the man left office. Now that's a legacy!

    I see why you were named Meathead (dead from the neck up).

    Fact: Reagan was not loved by conservatives when he left office.

    Do you know what Reagan's popularity was his last year in office? Mostly between 49% & 53%.

    Do you know what it must have been with conservatives? Read the past press he received form conservatives, in their very own words they now try to run away from

    revisionism doesn't work where information is available

    Fact: When Reagan left office his biggest detractors were conservatives

    Trajan won't answer questions, Dante. :lol: He ran himself off a thread last night because he wouldn't or couldn't. He just can't stand being laughed at.

    Now to the point. RR raised taxes three times, had an unemployment rate almost 1% higher than Obama, raised the deficit 16 times, cozied up to the Soviets, lied about Iran-Contra, and was responsible for hundreds of officers and thousands of NCOs leaving the service because of I-C.
