MSNBC In the words of a phrase popular when Reagan was president...gag me with a spoon! Sure Reagan was happy. He didn't know what was going on. Like our current Fearless Leader, he didn't like to read. Sure he "presented things nicely." But a saying about Hollywood (in which Reagan was an actor) also applies to Reagan the president: When you scrap off all the phony tinsel on top, you'll see the real tinsel underneath. Reagan is now their model for the ideal president, huh? "Fighting for hardworking Americans"? Reagan? The union-buster? The corporate tool? Reagan, who expanded government and increased the national debt to then-unheard of levels? Reagan, the enemy of environmentalists? Are they kidding?? Or are they just self-destructive?
