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.

And RR would be sitting there shaking his head in grim amusement, and saying: "What did I tell you? There they go again!"

On the other hand, Reagan was serving in an era when the communist Big Media had a monopoly on the flow of information, and he was fighting a Democratic congress. Bush has neither of these obstacles (yes, there are Democrats with an 'R' by their names in the Senate, but even that is partly Bush's doing).

You don't say. I wasn't aware that George Schultz, Cap Weinberger, and Howard Baker were back at the White House.
