Reagan was an actor.

His face was known, with some fondness, and he had trained to play a part. Being an actor means being able to pull your audience into the story, no matter what the script.

Most politicians are not actors. They don’t have that skill set.

In other words, it was the acting, not just ideas, that won.

That’s too simplistic. I suggest you read up on Reagan’s bio, espeically his early days working for GE.

That was a good thing.

Unfortunately, Obama is also an actor, and that's a bad thing. Yes, there are differences--Obama needs his script in front of him on a teleprompter. And, IMHO, he's a force for left-wing evil rather than conservative good. But, he is an actor. He pretends amused knowledge and friendly compassion, when in fact he's a selfish, personally cold, close-minded, rather lazy individual.

Reagan was much more than an actor, his degree was in economics, he was very successful in college politics, and he was a many times life saving hero (even a gun using hero) and a real man, before he ever entered acting, Reagan entered acting the very same year that he started his pre-WWII military career that came to be 8 years of active and active reserves.

Romney is mush, and a Mitten, and always has been.

Reagan said he was not an actor and he had thirty movies to prove it.

Received wisdom. Or rather an old propaganda line of the Left against Reagan. YAWN!
