    I thought they were estranged during his presidency.

    Seems that you continue to live in the past
    This from the guy who keeps talking about how great Reagan, supporter of dictatorships, was.

    while ignoring the actual history of the past.
    Like the Southern Strategy? You can ignore that all you want. Doesn't mean it didn't actually happen.

    What are facts is this country is a Center-Right country,
    History shows different. We have legalized abortion, gays rights, freedom of religion, press, equal rights between men and women. Hardly representative of a 'center-right country'.

    not a left country that today's liberal party wants us to believe.
    It's all a conspiracy. Yes. I know. 'The left' is hard at work trying to make you believe that even though homos are now allowed to kiss on the streets you're not living in a country that is more and more progressive by the day.

    They showed that by electing Obama in 2008 with 52% of the vote believing him to be closer to the center.
    Oh I get it, Barack Obama gets more votes than Reagan could have ever dreamed of and the country isn't more progressive.

    In 2010 Obama lost 10% of his base and was shellacked in the midterm. Those are the facts that matter now what happened decades ago.
    Uh - what?

    Obama got more votes than Reagan 20 years later and that is your argument? There was no electoral college involved in 2010 when Republicans collected over 680 state offices from Democrats, nor does the electoral college look at the Obama results. BEA.gov, BLS.gov will give you non partisan data regarding both Reagan and Obama. If you have the guts do to those sites.

    Reagan's funeral was an exceptional event that showed even you the love and support he got from the country. You obviously weren't around in 1980, didn't have to pay over 17% for a home mortage, experienced double digit inflation, and the malaise Carter left us. Keep living in your dream world.

    Liberals think only with their heart and ignore their brain. If liberalism was so good the Great society would have worked. If liberalism was so good SS and Medicare would be trillions in the hole. If liberalism was so good more people would call themselves liberal vs. the 20% that claims to be liberal.

    I've actually taken several and passed with a 4.0. Such a classic liberal strategy. If you don't agree with their totally baseless claims about something, you must not understand it.

    Give us some indisputable evidence (you know real data not just blind observations and feelings), and well talk.

    reagan is history and the verdict is in---americans consider him one of the greatest chief execs we've ever known

    his administration was entirely reaganite, he set the agenda, he ran the show

    as for his second term---from his decision to go thru with bitburg to his inspirational response to the challenger---all comprehensively in character

    character defined the man

    and political principle and philosophy, which he wrote himself in thousands of pages of notes transcribed on yellow legal pads thru the 60's and 70's and going all the way back to his days touring for ge

    america always knew the man, he won 45 states in 80, and 49 in 84, morning in america

    LOL!

    america always knew the man, but it wasn't until his funeral, the most amazing spontaneous outpouring, 50 miles of CA freeway traffic STOPPED in homage to his hearse...

    it wasn't until his funeral that the elites came to recognize

    once again, as always, he kicked their butts

    Agreed. I actually liked the senior Bush as I respected him vs. his screw up son.

    Isn't it amazing that "the dumbest President" we have ever had got an economic plan that grew the economy from 9.9 trillion to 14.5 trillion through a Democrat Controlled Congress and how that "dumb" President implemented a surge program in Iraq that was duplicated by Obama in Afghanistan? It does seem that rhetoric always trumps reality and actual facts in the liberal world.

    McCain does show some signs of early senility. Quayle, from my home state, was just dumb and it had nothing to do with his spelling. He once walked into a McDonalds during a recession and said, "See people are back at work."

    Nah you're just enabling because your so partisan.

    I thought Nixon and Bush senior were no dumbies so I don't have a problem giving credit where credit is due. Hell even Eisenhower got it. Clinton has a few things he was dumb about as did Kennedy and they were the same things - women. Carter had a high I.Q. but was naive.

    Bush I did a creditable job, and was a one term president. Junior screwed up royally and let Rummy, Cheney, and Wolfie run the show, and was reelected. Kind of makes you wonder about the voters, doesn't it?
