It's nauseating that BushCo. wants to latch onto Reagan's legacy. The pathetic NeoCon strategy has absolutely nothing in common with the Reagan Doctrine.

Bush can't hold a candle to Reagan in the character department, either.



Bush Doctrine canít match Reaganís
James P. Pinkerton

June 8, 2004

Was Ronald Reagan the first neoconservative? And so, would the Gipper have invaded Iraq, just like George W. Bush? Not surprisingly, the neocons are claiming the Reagan legacy - the evidence notwithstanding.

On Monday, Frank Gaffney, a fervent proponent of the Iraq war, published a piece in National Review Online entitled, "Let Bush be Reagan - Bush, Like Reagan, is waging a battle against evil." Gaffney's argument was that, if Bush "emulates" Reagan's "moral compass and strategic vision" in Iraq, then Bush will surely triumph in the battle against "Islamofascism," just as Reagan defeated communism.

But a look back at how the United States defeated communism highlights the dissimilarities - the clear disconnect between the Reagan approach and the current Bush approach to dealing with enemies.
