27. Yes, he said that but, "Romney could have been Reagan..."

is only half the sentence, "but the party was an albatross around his neck." The full context of the conversation was about how the GOP is on the ropes.

32. that is still insanely ludricrious

I certainly have no respect for the policies of Reagan but he was a master politician. Romney might have been the worst politician ever to win the nomination of a major party.

2. Reagan...

was the beginning of the end of this economy. This is where the ill-fated trickle-down economics did us in, weakened the middle class, and started the class warfare. Yeah, just what we want/need.

3. But it's 30 years on, and even Reagan couldn't get elected dog-catcher now.

 

Not running as an (R) anyway.

A political failure whose lack of accomplishment in life is eclipsed only by Sarah Plain and stupid.

9. Well he's technically not wrong...

When you consider that Reagan had a history of screwing over the poor and the middle class, and his hatred for every thing modern and a tendency to want to take back to some weird Honeymooners / Dick Van Dyke era that never existed in the first place.

When he tries to play with numbers, it is clear that he does not really understand these numbers

13. If not for the success of the right wing revisionist history

makers out there, this would not be considered a compliment. I hate how this cartoonish superhero image of Reagan goes unquestioned and promoted in the media.

14. I watched the statement. What Todd meant was that given the economy, if Romney

had run on a more moderate platform, he would have won given the effects that the economy would have had on President Obama. Remember that when Jimmy Carter lost in 80, the nation had slipped into a recession and was losing jobs.

20. The Republicans kepting saying:

"No president has been re-elected with unemployment at 8%"

I think that is why so many nut jobs were involved. They were convinced all they had to do was get nominated and they would win by default.

23. I thought they wanted to lower the national debt

or would he have another banking crisis or lead us right into recession or spend trillions on missile defense against a country that no longer exists...

He had the dying the hair down.

26. BS: Frum tried this line too...

Reagan's greatest skill was selling an absolute crap sandwich to a chunk of the American people under the auspices of furthering American Exceptionalism. No Repuke since has sold that crap sandwich as well.

Romney was probably the worst candidate the GOP fielded in 50+ years. No bravado, arrogant superiority oozing out of his pores, and no Reagan-esque way of selling the crap sandwich that is conservatism at its core.

set back advances toward alternative energy a quarter of a century....

Yep. Romney would have been another Reagan.

One overprivileged rich-boy idiot bag of shit was president for eight years; the other one never will be.
