BS at TNR
What did I tell you about TNR – some great work mixed with pieces that make steam come out your ears. Well, Check out this re-run hit job on Reagan. A series of spoof Christmas carols etc. all aimed at Reagan but with an overt strike at the current president. The Ed. note starts out “Two decades before the current oil-addicted, corporation-coddling administration came to power” and ends with “The fact that these charges apply just as well today as they did 20 years ago would be funny if it weren’t so sad.” What a bunch of cow patties! It is sad that TNR has to resort to name calling and bad satire to attack the Gipper. The liberals want it both ways. They blame Reagan for devastating the poor and running deficits but the sad truth is that all the money spent on the military was well worth it (the end of the cold war is what allowed Clinton to save all those military dollars and the economy then pushed us out of deficit) but Reagan did not slash spending on social programs (how could he with a D controlled House?). These tired jabs about Reagan’s putting the poor over a barrel is bull. But the left never gets tired of it – if you say it enough it must be true. sad.
