Where is the equivalent outrage for the Clinton Reagan "lovefest"?
Advertisements [?]
Brokaw writes that Clinton believes that modern conservatives such as Karl Rove are obsessed with defeating her.

She prefers the godfather of the modern conservative movement, Ronald Reagan, Brokaw writes on Page 404. He was, she says, 'a child of the Depression, so he understood it . When he had those big tax cuts and they went too far, he oversaw the largest tax increase. He could call the Soviet Union the Evil Empire and then negotiate arms-control agreements. He played the balance and the music beautifully. "

This is absolutely disgusting and contemptible she is practically gushing at his abilities. But I guess the outrage at Obama was just faux outrage.

Shut up and sit down on this one Hillbots.
