The Ronald Reagan Terrorist Appeasing Iran-Contra Arms Deals Economic Zone of the United States? OrWhen Reagan passed away in 2004, a fellow Marine, with whom I was friends, asked me my recollections of Reagan, stating he was too young to remember policy and the like, and only recalled Reagan as being a steady-hand on the rudder President.

I mentioned and expounded briefly on Reagan's history of deregulation and Voodoo Economics and his wishy-washy tough guy (Invade Grenada Leave Lebanon) talk but, that I did agree with President Reagan on eliminating Nuclear Weapons.
"One of the most important contributions we can make is, of course, to lower the level of all arms, and particularly nuclear arms." ~ Ronald Reagan, 03/23/83.Now, of course, when President Obama took up the policy of eliminating Nuclear Weapons, Faux News, Sarah Palin and every Right-wing hag and blowhard attacked him for "coddling our enemies".
And "[M]aybe I should go see Andropov and propose eliminating all nuclear weapons" and "[M]y dream is to see the day when nuclear weapons will be banished from the face of the Earth".
But, that's the Beauty of the Reagan Deification. His words and actual policies no longer matter to Right-Wingers. They have created a Saint, an Idol for Conservatives to revere, when all a candidate has to do is utter, Ronald Reagan and look whistfully upwards and the duped conservatives wildly cheer...
Over at National Review Online, the Beautification of Mitt Romney has begun as he literally walks across Lake Winnipesaukee and will figuratively walk across the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac to the White House to cleanse the US of it's Kenyan Marxist sins.
The funny thing is even the snippets pulled reveal the hidden Chicken Hawk Plutocrat Vulture Capitalist Welfare Queen Coward. As Romney "saved" his fellow vacationing lake home yachters who weren't in danger, saved the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics by getting $1.5 Billion in Tax payer welfare from the Federal Government and had no problem "fighting" in France in the late 1960's instead of fighting in French-Indochina.
Funny how the article doesn't mention his time at Bain Capital or Mitt Romney's "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" supposed saving of the Auto Industry, but then just like with Saint Reagan, Mitt Romney's actual record doesn't matter it's all about selling Romney as the Right-Wing Savior.
