  •  That is really my only concern/point here. Honest? (0+ / 0-)

    Really? Then post your real name and occupation.

      but my occupation is in higher ed and i prefer to keep my name, like most people in online forums, private. Again we are way off point aren't we? It is just that I see that quote ALL the time and it is usually, like your use, incomplete. i think it is worth being accurate and honest when using small things like that to make a bigger point. Perhaps you do not and that is your prerogative.

        You are trying to create a distraction from the fact that Reagan lead a war against the American middle class.  You have tried every little technique you know to divert attention from the failed policies of conservative politicians.  When other see your "not to be picky but " comments in the future, they will know where you are coming from.  I have found your persistence and your avoidance of the real issue incredibly beneficial.  Thank you.

          stated the full quote, then you jumped onto his view on states rights, racism, public institutions,  etc. Much of which I agree with.  I just stated the full quote and made a case for accuracy & honesty. Not sure why you can't deal with that. I'd do this with any quote by anyone taken out of context. But I see, you're a politician, so perhaps that explains it. Take care.
