Speaking on Fox News yesterday, Michael Reagan, the son of the patron saint of today’s GOP, had an interesting analysis of his father’s policies.
If you evaluate him as a governor today, “the argument him would come from the right, not from the left,” Reagan said. “He would have trouble getting his own nomination [today], but yet he ended up being the greatest president in our lifetimes.”
Reagan had a message for the GOP base as well, warning “we need to look at the whole package, the whole picture, everybody, and stop nit-picking ourselves to death,” he concluded.
Reagan is currently considering running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in 2012.
