    But for decades, the growing spinelessness of democrats has been a problem. They made it worse by trying to compete for corporate dollars, even though corporate types were fucking the entire country.

    Reagan's post-expiration emergence of his sainthood status has always amazed me.  At first, I thought it was a joke.  Given the multiple ways he fucked up, and how his last four years were a study in senile dementia,  I always feared that those who controlled his last 4 years, were simply laying the groundwork for their own dominence over our political cystern.

    Why are so many democrats spineless in the face of lies? Why do so many cave in when faced with unadulterated attacks based on bullshit? Why are so many embarrassed about liberal successes?

    Where's the pride? The acknowledgement of huge accomplishments? The bettering of society has always, and will always , be our most honorable goal.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      gets me about Reagan- and it doesn't bother me that much since we have Clinton and Obama- is how it always comes back to Ronnie these days.

      I'm 46 years old, so I was in 8th grade when Reagan was first elected.  I remember very little of that period. AND I'M A HUGELY OVEREDUCATED POLITICO.  There's no way the average voter under 50, and nobody under 40, remembers much about St. Ronnie.   When I hear Paul Ryan wax poorly about Carter or Reagan, I just shake my head.  Paul Ryan has absolutely no earthly idea about any detail in Reagan's presidency.  None.

      Reagan is a far away God object: immortal, omnipresent, omnipotent,  unknowable, unforgettable.

      From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

      •  I'm 55 and I remember. (1+ / 0-)

        I remember:
        Astronomical interest rates
        Massive home foreclosures
        Reagan Ranches (communities of people living under bridges)
        Steel mills closing
        Unemployment
        Union busting (starting with the air traffic controllers)

        I'm always surprised when people reminisce about the "Good ole Reagan days."

        I'm really glad you don't buy into the revisionist history of the Reagan years.
