It really is comical hearing Kerry trying to pass himself off as being in the Reagan mold (as he tried to do in the second debate). I remember the 80’s and Kerry and the other liberals in Congress fought Reagan tooth and nail every step of the way.
Rich Lowry absolutely nails this here: Senator, You’re No Ronald Regan
I was bothered by a lot of this during the days surrounding Reagan’s funeral. All these people in the news media and Democrats in Congress all said all kinds of nice things about Reagan and how great he was. It’s not that I disagree… I think Reagan was one of the greatest presidents of the 20th Century… it’s just that it was so incredibly hypocritical for liberals to praise him in death when they were so unbelievably vicious toward him while he was president.
Hey, maybe there’s hope for President Bush’s legacy after all….
