Lionel Mandrake: The real Reagan that would get primaried in a run for the House, or the mythical Reagan that was hard-line on immigration, never raised taxes, didn't cut and run after a terrorist attack and only sold weapons to our close allies in transparent, legal transactions?
edmo: My views are unchanged and, I suspect, so are Reagan's.
impaler: They want an imaginary Reagan that never existed, along with an imaginary 1950s America that never existed.

Mentat: Remember, the problem isn't the Republican message which the people largely hate, it's how the Republican Party is getting that message out that matters.
Smeggy Smurf: Mentat: Remember, the problem isn't the Republican message which the people largely hate, it's how the Republican Party is getting that message out that matters.You mean rape isn't a good message?
Pincy: How could they be pinning for Reagan...
Bslim: If Reagan were alive today he would be screaming and desperately trying to get out.
bunner: Then you get a shovel and you get a voodoo priestess and you f*cking well dig up your dime store, failed B actor Jesus and you spend the rest of your born days playing backstab turf wars with the country you claim to love as the football. You do that until your straw bosses have scraped the last nickel out of the register and moved shop but they are NOT going to save you a place in the getaway car, and God help you when people finally decide to dismantle what's left of your little fourth reich greed orgy when there's nothing left to steal. God speed, you covetous, obstructionist "do what we want or we'll burn it all down", false patriot jagoffs. You do that.
Muta: Would a 35 or 40 y.o. have any first hand memories of Reagan's presidency?

Muta: The GOP can't idolize W, he is a pariah and H.W. Bush raised taxes (can't have that). Nixon administration didn't go well and Eisenhower spoke against the military industrial complex. After Eisehhower, you have to go back to the guys who caused the Depression. Reagan is really all the GOPs got.If all you've got to live for is what you left behind,Get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine.

doyner: edmo: My views are unchanged and, I suspect, so are Reagan's.I'd venture to say Reagan's views have been unchanged since at least 2004.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Reagan, the divorced union president who ducked military service to make movies with a monkey in Hollyweird before becoming governor of the most liberal state in human history?Good luck in the Fox News debate, Ronnie!
jcb274: "from this diverse group, Republicans say, could emerge a Moses-like figure - maybe several of them - to lead the party out of its wilderness"Didn't Moses lead his people into the wilderness and die there? Methinks they want a new metaphor. Unless their "Moses" is leading them out of Egypt and Egypt is America. Then, please proceed, GOP.
IBelieveYouHaveMyStapler: The only reason that the GOP is still standing is because it had been nailed there.
