Bush didn't cut and run like we did after Beirut in '82 and he has, so far, refused to raise taxes after cutting them unlike Ronnie. The amnesty issue and Supreme Court nominees are a wash so far. Rhetorically, Reagan rates much higher.

Ditto. I've been saying this here for a while. Conservatives look back on Reagan with rose-colored glasses. In fact he was almost a carbon copy of Bush - Taxes, national security, judges, education funding, deficit, illegal immigrants, etc. Heck, their administrations even contain the same people!

I knew conservatives in the '80's that were always complaining about Reagan not being conservative enough. Ask them today and Reagan could do no wrong. Now they've turned their wrath on Bush and are saying the exact same things that they used to say about Reagan.

An easy claim to make....out of context. Beirut and 241 Americans is not New York City & Wash. D.C. with almost 3,000 dead. Furthermore, Reagan still had the Soviet Union to deal with, especially in the Middle East. The wise move was to leave. Your defense of Bush with the accusation of cowardice toward Reagan does not do your case any good, in fact, it harms it. Try some other strategery.
