And so Gingrich’s brief dalliance with the right side of history comes to a close…

Actually it’s an opportunity to tell the truth about what an awful person/president that Ronald Reagan was.

Yeah, for real. Reagan should’ve thought about that before he supported apartheid.

“We have made great progress in becoming an independent nation. I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity.” Yet ANOTHER Texas Republican wants to secede! (via think-progress)

During his two terms in the White House (1981–89), Ronald Reagan presided over a widening gap between the rich and everyone else, declining wages and living standards for working families, an assault on labor unions as a vehicle to lift Americans into the middle class, a dramatic increase in poverty and homelessness, and the consolidation and deregulation of the financial industry that led to the current mortgage meltdown, foreclosure epidemic and lingering recession.
These trends were not caused by inevitable social and economic forces. They resulted from Reagan’s policy and political choices based on an underlying “you’re on your own” ideology. Reagan is often lauded as “the great communicator,” but what he often communicated were lies and distortions.
For example, during his stump speeches, while dutifully promising to roll back welfare, Reagan often told the story of a so-called “welfare queen” in Chicago who drove a Cadillac and had ripped off $150,000 from the government using eighty aliases, thirty addresses, a dozen Social Security cards and four fictional dead husbands.
Journalists searched for this “welfare cheat” in the hopes of interviewing her and discovered that she didn’t exist. But this phony imagery of “welfare cheats” persisted and helped lay the groundwork for cuts to programs that help the poor, including children. […]
