This pretty much boils it down to its real essence:
All the talk of Reagan is funny when you consider the man could never be elected in today’s political climate. He’d be too liberal for them. Hell, he raised taxes 11 times along with increasing the debt ceiling 18 times. And let’s not forget how he signed a bill that granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
They sure do like to hold him up like some sort of Conservative Saint, but they’d run his ass out of town on a rail if he were alive today and seeking the nomination.
