While vetting Donald Trump FROM THE RIGHT, I often wish I could reach through my computer screen and choke the mindless minion who was coached to say, “Reagan was a liberal democrat too.” Instead, I fruitlessly try to reason with them by saying, If anyone is going to USE Reagan to defend Clintonista Trump, they should get their facts straight.
Reagan switched parties in 1962, which is 5 years before he was elected Governor of California (YES… Reagan was a politician). Before that, Reagan’s views changed in the 1950’s, as he endorsed the presidential candidacies of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956, as well as Richard Nixon in 1960. Reagan gained national attention with his “A Time for Choosing” speech in support of conservative presidential contender Barry Goldwater in 1964. Even then, he didn’t immediately run for POTUS, but a lesser office to prove his credentials matched his rhetoric.
In stark contrast, Trump supported the candidacy of Bill Clinton, TWICE… and credits Slick Willy as the best president in the last 20 years. He supported John Kerry’s presidential run in 2004, he supported Nancy Pelosi as Speaker in 2006, he supported and said Marxist Hillary would make a good president in 2008, he supported Obama and his policies (aka. Obama’s Stimulus Package, auto bailouts, foreign policy, etc) from 2008-11, he supported Harry Reid’s Senatorial campaign over Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle in 2010, and he didn’t change his supportive views on Obama or flip flopped on some liberal positions (abortion and gun control) until March of 2011, when he first ran for POTUS as a Republican.
Can you imagine Reagan endorsing McGovern or saying Carter would make a good president before running himself? He would have never won.
While Reagan boldly fought against Socialized Medicine in 1961, Trump STILL supports a Canadian style Socialist single payer system that is to the left of Obamacare.
Reagan was the “Great Communicator” who artfully conveyed a vision of American Exceptionialism to the masses…
While Clintonista Trump uses Twitter to break Reagan’s 11th commandment and vent his inner foul-mouthed juvenile…
“Look at that face! [Carly Fiorina] Would anyone vote for that?” ~ Donald Trump
“Ben Carson is a complete and total loser.” ~ Donald Trump
“Not a lot of evangelicals [Ted Cruz] come out of Cuba…” ~ Donald Trump
“I don’t think he’s [Ted Cruz] qualified to be president, look at the way he’s dealt with the Senate, where he goes in there like a — you know, frankly like a little bit of a maniac. You’re never going to get things done that way.” ~ Donald Trump
The fraud even insulted Reagan in his book, “The Art of the Deal.”
Reagan was a God-fearing Christian man, while at best, Trump is a deist who says, “I’m not sure I have ever asked God’s forgiveness. I don’t bring God into that picture.”
While the creep doesn’t ask forgiveness for supporting baby murder and baby murdering democrats most of his life, he has the nerve to criticize the faith of his GOP opponents, and use a Bible as a prop at the Values Voter Summit.
Please STOP comparing the fraud to Reagan. It’s an insult!
