Reagan and Bush spoke Javascript? How prescient of them.


The Democrats would never show a video of Reagan’s own words like that… probably because it sounds a lot like the Dem’s platform today.


To be fair to Teddy, he really just wanted a steady supply of bears to fight bare handed with.


CGI is making their attempts slicker, but Hollywood is constantly derailed in it’s efforts by it’s own self.

This one was easily debunked by conservative conspiracy experts and widely panned as an example of Hollywoods ineptitude.

Clearly Reagan would not have been pumping his own gas, not in a tuxedo anyway. Fake.

This attempt, Hollywood brought in an actor that resembled a younger Reagan to make a documentary about his years before politics not long after marrying Nancy.

According to conservative critics of the documentary, not once in the entire film did this person, clearly an actor, ever don a cowboy hat.

Then there is Bush…

They’ve had a lot more success there. Bush Sr. has been dead for almost 2 years now, conservatives know it, but Robin Williams refuses to break character, so nothing can be proven conclusively.


NAFTA also appears to have been a bad deal for most Americans and most Canadians. Let’s sign the TPP!


Someone totally already posted this a couple of days ago in one of the election threads.

Not to mention:


Those two terms aren’t mutually exlusive.


Ah yes, the Central-America-Iran-Afghanistan-Saudi-national circle of life… Kumbaya!!!


Newt Gingrich at the time represented the extreme, uncompromising right. In 2012 Gingrich was tarred and feathered by the Tea Party and Fox News as a commie Marxist socialist RINO traitor.


Don’t forget…

  • In 1990 President George H.W. Bush’s “Family Fairness” policy gave deferrals to 1.5 million spouses and children of immigrants given amnesty by Reagan in 1986.

  • In 2003 it was Bush II’s turn to push for immigration amnesty.

  • In 2004 it was GOP conservatives who were pushing for the AgJOBS immigration amnesty bill.

  • The Republican platform committee independently made immigration amnesty part of the Republican platform in 2004. (PDF. Refer to the “Supporting Humane and Legal Immigration” section. It says “we oppose amnesty”, while describing their amnesty program.)

  • In the 2008 election it was McCain that wanted immigration amnesty.

  • In July 2010 it was Sarah Palin’s turn on Bill O’Reilly’s show. Her plan is to make all illegal immigrants register. Those that don’t will be found and deported. Those that DO register will be allowed to continue to work in the US.

  • In 2012 it was Newt Gingrich’s turn. Gingrich recounted how World War Two-era U.S. draft boards chose who would serve in the military, saying a similar system might help deal with the millions of immigrants living in the United States illegally.

  • In 2013 Ted Cruz fought for legalization (but not citizenship) for illegal immigrants.

  • Rick Perry wrote an op-ed in the newspaper saying that he was open to Amnesty, and has given speeches supporting an open border. “We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, “we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.” And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers.” […] "President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace, as long as we demonstrate the will to address the obstacles to it. "

And that’s all after Reagan’s Amnesty.

Note: I had more citations, but the links keep dying.


Ted Cruz less than three years ago, eh? I didn’t know he was running as the communist candidate for the Republicans.
