Reagan Advisor On Republicans: ‘Rather Stupid And Not Very Well Read’ (VIDEO)

It’s always so much easier when they say it, isn’t it?

Republicans love Ronald Reagan – like A LOT!! They have him on a pedestal and it’s nauseating. So it was pretty glorious and refreshing when one of Reagan’s former advisors, Bruce Bartlett, spoke to Ed Schultz and speculated how Republican god, Ronald Reagan, would be treated at CPAC today:

I think he probably would be booed out of the crowd. If only because he gave amnesty to illegal aliens back in 1986. Nativists like Representative Steve King routinely denounce Reagan for that. They would have denounced him for raising taxes eleven times. They would have denounced him for raising the debt limit. They would have denounced him for running budget deficits. They would have denounced him for supporting labor unions. And we are not even getting into all the liberal things that he did as governor such as signing the most liberal abortion law in the United States. I think this guy definitely would not be a favorite of this crowd.”

Schultz then asked if it is that conservatives and CPAC attendees are simply unfamiliar with history.

Well, I guess they have completely forgotten about George W. Bush whom they defended to the heavens when he was in office. But yes, they are really rather stupid and not very well read. To them Reagan is a distant figure in history who was famous before they were even born.”

“…rather stupid and not very well read.”

“…rather stupid and not very well read.”

“…rather stupid and not very well read.”

They’re eating their own.
