Everyone knows Nancy died, but it should scare everyone that Ron consulted her when she was herself superstitious.

 Enough with the "too soon".   Nancy can be argued to have contributed positive things to the White House. But nobody is all good or all bad. She still used superstition as a cruch and President Reagan valued her opinions.

 Now, here is my take on

 Now, here is my take on Reagan. He would have made a great Jimmy Carter if it weren't for his economic views. And would be more like a Penn Jillette if alive today, right on social issues, but dead wrong on economics.

 

He spent his carreer in Hollywood, notoriously liberal and long before sport for gays became part of the mainstreem, Hollywood was ahead of the curve. Patti Davis an Ron Jr, knew this. Reagan got the "tear down the wall" right. But his union busting and deregulation is what has exploded our pay gap and allowed big money to hold BOTH PARTIES hostage.

 

Ron Jr loved his father yet ended up both a social and economic liberal. Much like I love my Catholic republican voting mother who values liberal social equality. But there is no way, as conservitive as Reagan was, not even he could run on today's GOP ticket.
