Mike Huckabee: Ronald Reagan Wouldn’t Stand a Chance Today
Finally, a prominent rightwinger admits what everyone else has already noticed. Mike Huckabee said:
“Ronald Reagan would have a very difficult, if not impossible time being nominated in this atmosphere of the Republican party…he raises taxes as governor, he made deals with Democrats, he compromised on things in order to move the ball down the field.”
Teabaggers worship Ronald Reagan, grovel at His feet, have sick twisted fantasies about Him — and yet if He appeared today, they’d crucify Him. Go figure.
And you don’t even want to ask what the teatards think of Richard Nixon. That commie-loving treehugger — they can’t do anything to him now, since he’s been dead seventeen years. So they’ll settle for the next best thing: abolishing the Environmental Protection Agency, which Nixon created forty years ago.
Senator Richard Burr (R—Inbred) is trying to merge the EPA with the Department of Energy (another agency the rightwads have hated since the day it was created). This new consolidated/castrated department would be the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE).
