Ronald Reagan: Bleeding Heart, Atheist, Communist

Why, why are my fellow teabaggers and Biblehumpers all swooning over Ronald Reagan? He was a Hollywood Elitist who got divorced and re-married, and he did NOT attend church regularly.

And that's not all.
Did you know: When Reagan was governor of California, he signed a law liberalizing the state's abortion laws. As a result, more than a million unborn children were yanked, kicking and screaming, out of the womb. Your hero was a Baby-Killer!

As president, Reagan signed a bill that gave amnesty to over three million swarthy foreigners, most of whom were from Mexico. [Eww]

Reagan also greatly expanded the size of government when he was governor and later president. "Limited government" was just a slogan. He didn't mean it. He played y'all for a fool.

And most sickening of all, Ronald Reagan wrote in his memoirs: "My dream...became a world free of nuclear weapons." NOOO!!! And just what did that fuckin' pansy have against nuclear weapons??!?!?

Fellow Biblewipes, please stop trying to turn this godless Hollywood liberal into a teabagger icon just because he's dead.

And as if all this Reagan-worship wasn't enough, now his young whippersnapper son is saying mean things about Sarah Palin. Ronald Reagan, Jr. said:

"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news."

Now you listen here, you little snotnosed punk. Millions of us over-the-hill teajobs have absolutely nothing better to do than dress up like George Washington, wave mis-spelled signs and drool over Sarah Palin. And you ain't takin' that away from us.

I can't remember off hand anything she said, but she sure is purdy when she teabags.

My Republican-raised ex never believed me when I told her these kinds of things. She insists on believing that Reagan was 1) The most effective president of the 20th century, 2) The most popular president of that era and 3) The most conservative president of all time, none of which are true.

Reagan is lionized as an arch-conservative when, were a politician to espouse the same policies today, they would be left of the Democrats.

It was contently brought out during Reagan's run for the presidency that he gladly signed a great many liberal laws while he was governor and this is while he was a conservative star nationally. Willie Brown (one of the hated democrats by republicans in California and in the assembly at that time) said Reagan was quite amicable and easy to talk to. Many California Liberals made more noise of the bills he didn't sign rather then the ones he did. This came out and people didn't care and elected a man they thought was a true conservative.

Jimmy Carter was born again and attended Church regularly while Reagan rarely went and yet polls showed people thought Reagan was more the Christian then Carter.

Forget his liberal union days he "repented" on that one!

As it was Obvious people judged him by what he said rather then his actions (which were quite contrary) were that Reagan was some sort of symbol, an avatar - possibly a puppet of some extreme right wingers who used his name and his charm as a front for their true agenda, especially when you consider all who were close to him agreed that as president he was very hands off and rarely had any idea of what was going on in his administration as well as the country. All agreed, give the man a script and no one could perform better (his own description). This Alzheimer may have started a lot earlier then admitted but I will not use that to excuse him.

His repeated opposition to Civil Rights drove the Californian Black Republican Party (was was big on those days) to the Democrats and endeared him to the Southern Segregationist which were always his strongest supporters.


PS No man I know that likes Sarah Palin can remember anything she ever says - pathetic!

Great minds, Tom - I hit on this in today's Potluck.

Palin hasn't a clue what she's talking about, yet again. LOL!

Reagan created the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and because of that, we have a self-perpetuating war. Of which, I'm sure, the Tea Baggers are happy.

Maybe we could dig up William F. Buckley and make him a liberal what do you think? Tit for tat?

Well Actually Demeur

As Buckeley's didn't shift to the far right as the rest of them in his later years and some of his policies (like legalizing drugs), almost made him a liberal.

Same as Goldwater

If Reagan was president now, he could count on some jerk with a tea bag for brains running a primary against him for the GOP 2012 nomination. Reagan's habit of hobnobbing with the Senate Democratic majority leader after hours would be enough to seal his fate. But then, add the fact he raised taxes not once but several times and still sent the deficit into the stratosphere.

You can bet Sarahbellum would be traveling the $100k-dinner-talk circuit cutting the Gipper up one side and down the other — for fun and profit.

Saint Ronnie was barely conscious for about 6 years of his 8. But he was a piece of work before that.

Tom: The comparisons of Reagan and Jesus are even more striking when you consider what they turned Jesus into after he was no longer around to contradict them.

He didn't like the rich and powerful; made all kinds of anti-capitalist ramblings such as "take no thought for tomorrow, what you shall wear or eat"; never had a single cross word to say about gays (that issue bothered him so much he never mentioned it at all); and since Christians had not been invented yet he spent his entire life as a Jew.

But somehow, the tea baggers seem to think he was a Southern Baptist. It's amazing what history can do for you when you are just making it up as you go along.

I had something to say about Reagan, but now, "I can't recall".

If Reagan is such the icon, how come they couldn't get the stem cells legalized in his name?

Answer his usefulness is gone

These people probably have their own hand-picked scientists working overtime to find a way to reanimate Reagan's corpse so they can run him for president in 2012. That might be just about their only hope of winning back the White House in two years.
