    Perhaps he wrote in Reagan in '88?

      Born in 1967, he'd be 14 for Reagan's first election.  However, he'd be 18 for his re-election.  If you liked everything Ronnie did for the previous four years, everything Scott said is hypothetically true, if from a revisionist POV (smaller government isn't military build-ups or foreign expeditions, which to me is what Ronnie is famous for).

      Not backing Walker in any way, would still like to see him removed from office, but we can't be as misleading as the dishonorable opposition.

        84-67=17. Scotty would have been 17 in November, 1984. He didn't turn 18 until 1985.

        Walker was born in 1967, he would have been 17 for 4 days in 1984 for Reagan's re-election.

      •  That was my problem--I'm the same age (0+ / 0-)

        I HATED HATED HATED Reagan. Now I'm embarrassed to say so, but when he was shot I was unhappy that he wasn't killed. (Teenagers can be awful.) I turned 18 before Reagan's second inauguration, but I wasn't old enough to vote on Election Day. Which really made me angry, it didn't seem fair. I really wanted to vote against him. NYS also changed the drinking age so I closely missed it--again, really didn't seem fair to me!

        •  I was 21 when Reagan was shot (0+ / 0-)

          and all I thought at the time was, "John Lennon dies and Ronald Reagan lives.  Life is not fair."  I can't use the excuse of being a teenager, although I was young.
