I saw this ad on Sporcle today:
I don't know. Really? I mean, sure, Reagan was generally anti-government, but I still don't think he'd fit in with the Tea Party. I think the difference is that Reagan was pro-American people first and anti-government second. The Tea Party, on the other hand, is anti-government first. I guess what it comes down is that Reagan was an optimist and the Tea Party is basically pessimistic. It's hard to imagine Reagan getting down with the pessimists. In the privacy of the voting booth, Reagan probably would vote GOP tomorrow, but in some cases he'd be holding his nose while doing so.

|Can't agree there Kris. I don't think he would vote Republican. Not anymore. I think he would be shaking his head at what his party became while invoking his name...

|Who, other than the Tea Party are the optimists? The Tea Party people believe the countries' problems can be solved and also that they are capable of solving their own problems. What is that if not optimism? It beats the hell out of the endless Democratic doomsaying and the current Republican cluelessness. |
