hey I’m not talking about 1984 now... he was unbeatable then...totally different story.. but nobody in 1980 could have imagined what a great President RR would become.. some of us thought of him as highly as the koolaiders think of Obama but we never worshipped him and the country cetainly didn’t know he’d turn out to be the greatest President in the 20th century.. I first knew he was something special when he warned and then fired the PATCO air traffic controllers.. that’s when the country started to understand what a very special leader he was.. the left never thought he had the stones to do it... and they never forgave him for bouncing their boys....
More nonsense, millions of us were already seeing Reagan as a man of destiny, a world shaker, he had earned a reputation as a hard core right winger, and he had to convince the public that they could risk voting for him in exchange for a chance to neuter the Soviet Union, and save the world.
In 1980 there was an element of fear and tingling involved in voting for Reagan. We knew that things were going to be very, very, different, if we gave the presidency to the famous, fire breathing, already legendary, "Ronnie Raygun".
To this day, nobody even knows what Mitt's beliefs or politics are, or why he was so obsessed with wanting to be president.
Even on this politically sophisticated site, the pro-Romney points were, "He isn't Muslim", and "Anybody but Obama" mixed in with "no, he reversed all those positions in 2006".
