    I am interested to hear what a reactionary populist calls "extreme right"

    what part of the GOP platform is currently "more extreme" than the platform under Reagan

    He is clearly ignorant of the GOP platform under Reagan.

    That sounds to me like you are asking how is this bucket of reeking pig manure smelling any worse than that bucket of reeking cow manure.

    or is it that he was very close to being the very bottom of his academy class? or the demerits he accumulated?
    or his nasty temper? or his adultery?
    what qualified sham wow to be president? winning a senate seat with subterfuge and dirty tricks?> Being a second string state legislator-a job he got by dirty tricks as well? being a community activist?

    OMG finally a topic you are clearly an expert on

    I realize if one is a democratic party hack you would see people who don't buy into the creeping crud of welfare socialism that way

    You do have a problem comprehending what is posted, don't you. Where in my post did I say the rich screw the middle class?

    If you were as alert as you claim to be you would have been able to deduce from my post that the Republicans screw the middle class in favoring the rich. It isn't the wealthy who are to blame, of course they will accept tax cuts, even though there are some that are Patriotic and even wrote a letter to Obama begging him to let the tax cuts expire. That many Republicans happen to be wealthy and thus benefit from their own coddling is besides the point, but still, it is the party that screws the middle class.

    sadly Turtle, because we have lived through it, and because we are informed, and because we are perceptive far too many of us are indeed expert in comparing a bucket of reeking pig manure - Ronald Reagan and his policies - to a reeking bucket of cow manure - the current GOP platform, ideology and its extremist proponents.
