You know what's truly scary about this? I don't think this guy is blowing smoke; I think he really believes this crap. This guy has one, for one of a better term, "virtue." He doesn't play the "Reagan was a liberal" card:
And where are the common-sense Republicans who have faded from the scene - intimidated - since virulent Reaganism contaminated the American political landscape more than 30 years ago? And don't tell us Reagan favored the Brady Bill. That was long after he left office, when he risked no political capital.
Yes, before Reagan Republicans were common sense. I'm guessing he means pre-Reagan Republicans like Barry Goldwater. Excuse me now while I wipe the sarcasm off my laptop.
