Reagan is being re-purposed by his devoted fans. To fit their own agendas, whatever they may be. Not a nice way to treat your heroes – after they’re dead.
Lifted in its entirely from Andrew Sullivan this evening:
“A nuclear-free world has been a 60-year dream of the Left, just like socialized health-care,” – Rudy Giuliani, NRO, 2010.
“A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this Earth.” – Ronald Reagan, 1984, in China.
Giuliani isn’t the only one doing this. It’s just the very latest thing! (Because Obama did a bad you know.)
