The Republican Party is still waiting for their beloved head coach, Ronald Reagan, to come out of the locker room and lead them to another victory.
"Like any politician, Reagan changed his mind. As Governor of California, he signed pro-choice legislation into law that he later regretted. He supported a tax increase to balance the state budget, then ran against tax increases. As president, Reagan supported the equivalent of amnesty for illegal immigrants. He rejected Republican supported plans to invade Panama and Lebanon to protect American national security.
If he were starting out as a candidate today, the real Ronald Reagan could not measure up to the Ronald Reagan of myth."
