I’ve never been a fan of Reagan, and quite frankly, find many of his policies to have been destructive the middle and lower class in this country. Possibly the most overrated president in history by contemporary society. But he is a conservative icon and legend. By today’s standards of conservatism, however, I don’t think he could be nominated to run for president, let alone win two terms in office. This quote is one of many indicators that he would not be acceptable to today’s brand of conservative, in my opinion.
