      Reagan was hardly the ultra-conservative Saint that the neocons have made him out to be. He never balanced the budget, greatly contributed to the national debt, and even signed an outright amnesty program for illegal immigrants. He was more of a “country club Republican,” nominally fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

      I’m too young to remember Reagan, but his daughter seems to portray him as a much more open-minded person than the image I have of him in my mind. Perhaps Caleb is right that he was a “country club Republican.”

      I think the issue is because for so long AIDS and gay rights were seen as the same thing as far as passing laws were concerned.

      The Tea Party can make whatever claim they want about Reagan, but anybody who had remotely similar opinions to him they have already booted from the party.

      McCain is MUCH more conservative than REagan and yet they attack him for being a fake republican. They wouldn’t even let somebody like Reagan or Dole in the GOP today.

      Another heavy blow to the far-right religious homophobes. Jesus wasn’t a homophobe and neither was Ronald Reagan apparently. But atleast they still have Bill Donahue over at the ‘Catholic League’.

      Not only wasn’t Reagan a saint of any sort, he was an American traitor. The hostage crisis was kept going to ensure Carter’s defeat, in return for which, Reagan sold Iran weapons systems that they wanted.

      Reagan’s lack of response to the AIDS epidemic ensured that thousands more gay men would die. I think that is pretty clear evidence of his homophobia, no matter what silly anecdote about him is being told now.

      Naturally they are trying to “Re-invent Reagan” for these more tolerant times…otherwise he looks like the douche he really was…

      @balehead: 8

      I think you’re more or less describing things correctly.
