    Yet being on the scene too long doesn't seem to prevent the GOP from calling itself the party of Reagan .

    well, reagan hasn't been on the scene for a while, but in general i think they do need to get a new schtick; i think the policies reagan pursued as president would have him labeled a leftist heretic in a gop primary today

    Not with the way current GOPs invoke his name as them being the most Reaganesque GOP of the bunch--especially the TEA partiers.

    As a mod/con DEM, I'm rather enjoying the intrigue in DC right now in both parties. (61-YOA)

    Greatness echoes down through the ages, regardless of changes in the political environment. Repubs look back to RWR and Lincoln. Dems have their Jefferson-Jackson Dinner every year, but no Dems own slaves.

    Lincoln has ZERO in common with today's GOP as a moderate Illinoisan would know.
    One can only wonder how the USA would have turned out with Lincoln's Reconstruction agenda versus the disastrous agenda of the 'Radical Republicans'.
    The Radical Republicans who directly created the KKK out of good Southern folk.

    Your endless revision of DEMs owning slaves versus Southerners owning slaves is once again noted and dismissed.
    Which party, along with their Civil War DEM ancestors, now runs the South ?

    It is nonetheless the Dems who annually celebrate Jefferson & Jackson. You apparently did not realize you made my point, which was that parties evolve but they continue to revere their heroes from earlier eras.
