    Teddy Roosevelt was badass. Zombie Teddy Roosevelt would be... like... badass squared or something.

    Baseless worthless statement either contrived through completely ignorance of context or grossly egotistical assumption of how Reagan would act in the modern day.

    Not even close. The GOP of today is so far to the extreme right-wing, they wouldn't even recognize a Ronald Reagan.

    Because there was no completely accurate statement.

    For it to be accurate we'd either need to assume that the political climate and makeup of the 1980's is similar or exactly like it is today...or that Reagan would act the exact same way today as he did in the 1980's despite the extremely different political climate and makeup.

    It'd be akin to saying that Thomas Jefferson would push to reinstate Slavery if he was running for office today

    Also, I'd vote Reagan over Obama but I'd vote Zombie Teddy over anyone because if I didn't Zombie Teddy would devour my soul.

    Sorry Zyph....but comparing Reagan to the GOP of today.....Reagan would be considered not conservative enough for the party.

    Again, at worst a baseless factually inaccurate retarded claim and at best a highly distorted, dishonest, hyper partisan claim. Take your pick.

    So you're arguing with us because you think if he was alive today he wouldn't have the same opinions that he did in the 80's? I think it's safe to say that we are making the claim with the assumption that he kept the same opinion on policies.

    Would you find it inaccurate to say that in the present day Republican party it would be very easy to portray Reagan as someone that isn't conservative if he kept the exact same policy that he had when he was president?

    psst....who is leading current GOP nomination for President?

    Here is a hint, it isn't some radical right winger, but a very moderate candidate who most closely resembles Obama.
