Newt? Nope
Romney? Nope
Gingrich? Nope
Paul? Nope

We need a hero. We need to displace Sir Golfsalot with a real leader, a man, a hero. It's sad that in a nation of 350 million people the best we can put forward are those 4 aforementioned losers.

No we don't

Go research the GE pitchman before you get all nostalgic. The reason we have the candidates that we do is because they're the ones that the corporations bought and paid for. (Research the top contributors for the democratic and republican candidate in the last 3 elections). Same Corporations.

The last thing we need is more trickle-down Reaganomics BS. Followed by in-office senility

Highly agree! This is like the "South Park" GOP candidates. Someone capable and qualified to run needs to step forward before it's too late.

This is interesting - we've been watching old Reagan speeches lately, and it fascinates me how many of the issues from the 1970s and 1980s are the SAME things America is still struggling with. It makes me think we haven't made much progress.

Considering that we currently have the second coming of Carter, the next Reagan may very well be just around the corner.

A salesman/actor?

No thank you.

The last Ronald Reagan's economic policies are largely responsible for the declining middle class and increased outsourcing/globalisation of the last few decades...

Reagan's international policy was mostly being at the right place at the right time.

And people agree?

You can blame The Heritage Foundation, Rush & Hannity for that... their indoctrination is mindnumbing , they speak about it and people take it as the gospel without ever doing research themselves.

Don't forget that Reagan kicked off the deregulation which progressively loosened allowing the financial collapse to occur. For that reason, I think he was corrupt.

idk, beats trickle-down tyranny.

The problem here is look at the style of Reagan. Throughout his first election and presidency his stayed right of center and then took just a small step to the right. In order for government to meet him halfway, steps had to be taken towards the right.

With nearly all the GOP candidates, they keep stepping to the left. It is not good conservatism and makes for poor republican choices. But again, that all in order to meet the opposition halfway.

But as I often said, what we really need is an honest to god two-fisted John Wayne type of president. One that will force Congress to get off their butts and actually work for the people. And have the respect (or intimidation) to force it. Reagan acted that part, especially when he would talk about the Russians during the campaign and early in the first term as he despised Communism and was less than cordial to Socialism. But for the most part, it was all an act.

Reagan honestly benefited the most by seeming to be to everyone's grandfather when you looked at him. Just the natural grace and charm of an older generation that has been lost for some time now. Could you honestly see Reagan showing up without bringing a cake or a little something should you had personally invited him over for coffee if you were neighbors?

Yup. I do. Absolutely.

He wanted less government and I know that's an anathema to you hippies, so feel free to expound on your marxist/socialist failed endeavors.

Yeah... Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Community Reinvestment Act (allowing people to buy homes they were unqualified, financially, to purchase) are all Reagan's fault.

srsly?

Yeah trickle up economics worked out so well over 100 million people on the government dime with less than 10 million people footing the bill for the rest of the 330 million Americans massive government with power and control of unprecidented levels everyone paying their "fair share" seems those 10 million are and the rest isn't no future no hope and not even a pot to whiz in and people are beggin for more.

Yeah we need a Reagan we need someone who knows what the problems is in this country and that is Government and the joke of a potus has done such a great job.

It's is pathetic that so many people in this country think wealth and success can and should be legislated well i hear the talk about fair share but walking that talk aint ever going to happen.

The Government has too much power and takes too much of our monies and freedoms so how has that fair share worked out?

I am all about fair share fair play and it's high time they give back what they have stolen from us.

We need another Reagan someone who not only knows the score but lives up to their words believe and live it.

And Regan created 15 million new jobs something no other president in US history ever accomplished.

then you need to closely examine the POTUS and his multi-million $$ entourage as he plays his 88th round of golf on his 17 day vacation.

I love golfing. I haven't played 88 rounds in MY LIFE because I WORK FOR A LIVING. and this mother&^%$#@, as president of the United States (you'd think it'd be the toughest job ever... but not according to him), has time for his 7th vacation (17 days in Hawaii).

I want to be president. I need the time off.

Oh. and I'm certain that the commander in chief will be giving all our troops 17 days off to coincide with his vacation... cuz lord knows how hard it is to be CiC and run for reelection at the same time. I'm sure his brow is covered in perspiration. Wouldn't want him to pull a hammy on the WH bowling alley.
