What would Reagan do?
Ronald Reagan Weighs In On Bain Attacks
Forget all the particulars behind matters of high finance it’s not even clear Bain can fully disclose, Romney isn’t cooperating there, for what it’s worth. They likely don’t matter too much, any way. Think political narrative. Then read this bit about Reagan and assess what’s going on around the Bain Bashing fiasco and ask yourself, which side would Ronald Reagan want to be perceived as being on.
In late 1979, during an economic strategy meeting, Ronald Reagan was talking about his upcoming presidential campaign. At one point, somebody expressed concern that John Connally, the former governor of Texas and another presidential candidate, was gaining support among corporate chief executive officers, with all the financial support and credibility that that entailed. Reagan said this didn’t bother him at all. “Let him have the Fortune 500,” he said. “I want our campaign to stand for Main Street, not Wall Street. I want us to stand for the worker, the shopkeeper, the entrepreneur, and the small businessman.” Reagan’s instincts were right on the mark.
“What would Reagan do... I want us to stand for the worker, the shopkeeper, the entrepreneur, and the small businessman”
Isn’t that what Gingrich is doing? or trying to do?
Thanks for posting that, made my day.
If anyone could come up with that post, it had to be you. Well done.
