Ronald Reagan, Wild-Eyed Liberal

At least he was compared to the current crop of Republicans who all claim to bear his mantle and message of hard-core Reaganesque conservatism.

St. Ronnie was pro-immigration, including amnesty; he raised taxes eleven times during his term; he signed pro-abortion legislation while governor of California; he pushed for the Brady hand-gun control bill, and did his best to compromise and collaborate with Democrats on Capitol Hill when he was in the White House.

Try to imagine how far he’d get if he tried to wedge his way on stage at the debate tomorrow night at the Reagan Library in California where I’m sure every candidate will bow with great respect to his legacy.
