It must really kill those on the far left to see the spontaneous outpouring of love bestowed on Ronald Reagan. People erroneously claim that the eighties were less ppartisan. I remember the hysterical cries from the left about a cowboy who wants to usher in the end of days. I remember the moronic far left talking about Reagans lack of intelligence an absurdity if you read the book of his letters. I remember the defenders of the Sandanistas and the moronic nuclear freeze nuts. Reagan triumphed becauise he had vision and did not compromise. The American people loved him for it.
Even John F (fibber ) Kerry tried to get in on the act. However there was no greater far left opponent proven wrong by hisdtory. The nuclear freeze movement that Kerry supported did not make the world safer. Kerry is one of the authors of the infamous Dear Comodante letter. It must have killed him to see the rfepresentative of a democratically elected Nicaragua thank Reagan for his persistence.
What shall we learn from Reagan and his foes. The critiques of Reagan sound exactly like those of Bush. History has and the American people have remembered his role in the ending of the cold war. Likewise Bush will be vindicated by history when a democratically elected Iraq government can stand on its own.
Take any critique of Bush and you can find a paralell critique of Reagan. The American people showed they loved Reagan and the far left as usual offered nothing.
