The only ringing Reaganites should hear is how anti-Reagan he is. Reagan's whole economic strategy was lower taxes, borrow to spend. That is Reagonomics. Remember your history.

The only difference between Reagan and Obama on economics is Obama has no aversion to spending on the social programs needed to help our struggling families, advance health care and improve our schools. And he's not completely opposed to taxes.

Reagan increased spending (largely on cold war waning days beefups) and we learned what the debt clock was in the Reagan era.

I'm not going to villify Reagan here because he did, like Obama, unite a nation. However, any Republican you like does not mean he sounds like Reagan.

Know your history. This yet again proves your lack of understanding and full embrace of partisan nonsense.

Well put...Not that we all already did not know this, but PIV is one of the worst partisan hacks I have ever read in my life. Instead of using his readership to report the facts he reports the spin of GOP politicians. The people do not need spin, the need facts.

Mr. Reagan is dead and no amount of campaigning this far out (we just had an election in November, remember?) by anyone in the GOP and especially Sarah Palin is going to change that.

The GOP has lost races recently for one main reason: They are out of fresh ideas and new people to carry forth any new ideas," IMHO. Kinda sad, really.

South Carolina has 25 of the worst 50 schools in America. That-a-boy Mark. You keeps up the good work, ya hear.

I note with despair that Mr Francis is willing to quote Reagan, and by that showing us how astute he is politically, and yet pointing at those who in his words, haven't realized that Ronnie has slipped the mortal coil. In the meantime, Francis owes us an answer on what parts of the NY budget he would cut, and why he hasn't announced his candidacy for senator for Aubertine's seat yet. C'mon, Dan, live up to your hype! And why is dmf's buddy Graham sporting a Palin 2012 sticker? I can't take it any more. Hey Dan, how about getting mad about the way the power (electric power in this case) is auctioned off? That is a lot worse than a few budget dollars.

Anon 8:22. First things first:

The easy part: You're an a-hold Anon in your view(s) about, espcially on these three points you posted above:

1. "... in the meantime, Francis owes us an answer on what parts of the NY budget he would cut ..."

I owe no one an answer - I'm not in office and have no access to the entire budget (line-by-line) to make any cuts.

2. "... why he hasn't announced his candidacy for senator for Aubertine's seat yet. C'mon, Dan, live up to your hype..."

I have no intention of announcing a run for any office at this time, period. And, there is not hype to live up to except batting you down.

3. "... why is dmf's buddy Graham sporting a Palin 2012 sticker?"

This one is easy: Graham is NOT my buddy in the pure sense ... he probably is sporting a Palin sticker 'cause he has nothing better to do 8 years out?

Next topic: This ties into what I posted earlier about the GOP being out of new ideas and new people - enjoy GOP Down and Out?

Extract from that link: The GOP still has a long way to go before the public sees it as constructive and cohesive rather than obstructionist and unruly."

10:25 You mention the importance of history. The main part of history I remember about Reagan was how fools like you made light of him when he told the Russians to "tear down this wall." Only a dumbass could have made a comment like that, or at least that's what we heard at the time. We used to have hide under desks in school. And this went on for a generation. I don't remember it being like that after Reagan.

I remember 17% inflation rates and a "malaise" that some guy used to talk about.

Somehow, things got better. Or maybe I'm just remembering it in a partisan way. I'm sure you think school spending is too low, but for awhile there, we didn't know if we were going to have schools. It was a bad time.

After the Russians backed down, we could concentrate on making our teachers fat and happy. And that's what we did. Give the Gipper some credit.

So Obama united a nation?

I can't imagine what is going on in your mind. We are more divided now than we have ever been. Now it IS possible that Obama will be successful in pulling us together, but to make a statement like that at this time is foolish.
