Vladimir Putin and Ronald Reagan
I have often thought that what we American dissidents feel toward the Russian president must be akin to what Russian dissidents felt toward the American president back in the Big '80s.
Such thoughts return with the news that "the Russian leader took the high road" — Putin Stunner: "We Will Not Expel Anyone; We Refuse To Sink To 'Kitchen' Diplomacy".
They return with Father of Reaganomics "Paul Craig Roberts address[ing] the common misconception that Ronald Reagan sought to break the Soviet Union and win the Cold War rather than end it" — The myth of the Cold War.
And they make these asinine statments from the president eject seem even more moronic — Obama: "Ronald Reagan Would Roll Over In His Grave" That A Third Of Republicans Approve Of Putin. Would Mr. Reagan have wanted us to hate Russia in "We've-always-been-at-war-with-Eastasia perpetuity?
