  •  I never understood the 'Reagan had charisma' bit (5+ / 0-)

    Even my parents, who voted for Nixon (over Kennedy), hated Reagan.  Looking at Reagan made me wince.  Listening to Reagan made me cringe.  I could hear his speechwriters with every mouthful he spewed.  I could see the puppet strings dangling from his back.  His racism was never hiding too deep.  Sure, he was nice to 'The Butler', but he gave a wink and a nod to everything racist.  He was a disaster that this country may never recover from.
