GOP Leader Cantor Refuses To Admit Reagan Raised Taxes « The Fifth Column. Link from The Fifth Column.
Ronald Reagan is admired to this day by old/new age conservatives. For whatever reason, some people worship his brand of bullshit more intensely than the character Alex Keaton on the classic sitcom “Family Ties“-The problem is, the real world is not a comedy being led by a talentless wannabe shit kicker or a character on a television show. The only thing that trickled down from this imbecile was 8 years of racial division, economic disparity between the rich and the poor, and downright criminal activity=Iran-Contra and arms for hostages ring a bell? Clearly, there are no bells and whistles resembling average intellect in many of today’s conservative leaders. In fact, many of them, including Mr. Step and Fetch It himself Herman Cain, as well as Eric Cantor…border on being mentally unstable. Mr. Cantor has his head so far up the “Myth of Reagan’s” ass that he refuses to acknowledge factual evidence. The reality is that President Reagan was a monumental disaster and failure to most common folks. He created a blueprint for the foundation of today’s right-winged ideas. The problem is Elvis has permanently left that building!!!!!
