I actually met President Reagan TWICE. At the recommissioning of USS Iowa in 1982 and at Charleston Naval Shipyard in 1983 when he came to see the new Trident C4 missile system. He shook my hand. Romney is a Reaganite and will make a great President.
Romney assured Massachusetts voters running for the Senate in 1994 that he did not want to go back Reaganomics.
And just that easily you've blown the little credibility that you had.
Welcome to freerepublic, but your few days of posting has already outed you as a bomb throwing troll.
Romney is the anti-Reagan, the opposite of being a “Reaganite”.
Mitt Romney was weaned on politics, he was born into a politically aggressive, liberal, anti-conservative family in which dad became a Governor and a national figure, ending in a liberal presidential run, and mother was a 1970 liberal Senate candidate.
Romney has always known and lived his liberal convictions, and his anti-conservative drive for revenge against the conservatives of the GOP, the Reagan/Palin/teaparty types who he shuns and insults even as he gains control of their party today.
Romney was anti-Reagan, he left the GOP and from 1989 to 1993 only gave money to, and fund raised for democrat candidates, he voted for Paul Tsongas in 1992, he was giving to and fund raising for Planned Parenthood in 1994.
His father had run against Reagan for the Presidency in 1968, Mitt Romney and his father formally protested the victory of the conservatives at the 1964 GOP convention in which Goldwater was nominated and Reagan gave his famous speech. Romney was anti-conservative in every way during the first 59 years of his life.
Reagan was adamantly pro-choice
Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. Im not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.
Im not a partisan politician. My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses.
These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense, Romney said. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nations military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.
Do you think that Mitt was just merely confused a little about his core “Reaganite” beliefs during the the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and the 2000s, until 2006 at age 59 when he started his run for President, the second such run in a row for his family?
