Ronald Reagan has died at 93 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s – his legacy is viewed from starkly different perspectives:

Turning and turning in the widening quagmire The puppet cannot hear the puppeteer; Lies fall apart; the press releases cannot hold; Mere marketing is loosed upon the world [Edit] Posted in Blogcritics on June 11, 2004 07:29 AM
Yesterday, I walked a few blocks over to Constitution Avenue to watch the funeral procession for former President Ronald Reagan. Regardless of whether or not you supported/liked the man, this was a historical event, and a way to show respect…

Please forgive me if I borrow a question from — of all people — Rush Limbaugh: Where’s the love, Ted?

Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1911-2004
My strongest feeling about the passing of Ronald Reagan is not much feeling at all. Part of this is simple ambivalence: I was at my most liberal during Reagan’s presidency, didn’t vote for him, resented his yanking of the…

SAINT RONALD GETS THE HEAVE-HO
Unlike the thousands of Americans who will line Constitution Avenue to see the horse-drawn caisson delivering Saint Ronald’s coffin to the Capitol Rotunda, where his body will lie in state — and unlike the media maestros who will sanctify the…

The President’s entire life was documented on film and video… black and white footage from the early 20th century all the way up to the most recent High Definition, IMAX shots of his flag-covered casket lying in state.

Ronald Reagan: The Bad and the Ugly
It is amazing to me how people get a selective memory when speaking about those that have passed away. Case in point, President Reagan. He passed away this week, and from news reports, you would think that the man was…

Raise Your Hand If You’re Sure! (Reagan, Part II)
It’s almost unanimous–Ronald Reagan boosted America’s confidence in itself. I don’t disagree. And I don’t think he was a “demon” either. But my question is: what the fuck does “confidence” have to do with the American Project? As far…

Thank you, Mr. President
Reynaldus Maximus.The Great One.These and many other terms of endearment have been, and will be bandied about over the next week. Even his old enemies seem effusive in their praise of Reagan the man, if not Reagan the politician. Of…

What’s next? Saint Ronald? Everybody, including Mikhail Gorbachev this morning, is recalling just how wonderful the 40th U.S. president was. “I think he understood that it is the peacemakers, above all, who earn a place in history,” Gorbachev writes, in…

History will again prove them wrong
A common theme of mine, and something I strongly believe in is that the modern Democratic party and the majority of the current liberal movement have been, and continue to be on the wrong side of history.

Don’t Believe the Hype
Ronald Reagan, star of Kings Row, died today. Contrary to popular belief, he was a very good Hollywood actor. Oh yeah–and he was the worst possible thing that could have happened to America in the 1980’s. Christine and I…

Ronald Reagan, R.I.P.
I couldn’t believe the news as I logged on tonight – former President Ronald Reagan is dead, at 93 years of age. I will say, it very well may be just as well, as for the past decade, he fought…

Reagan rides into sunset
Well, he couldn’t duck this one, as Ronald Reagan himself might have said.

President Reagan – A spiritual leader passes
From the top, Reagan masterfully projected his vision that America is good and strong and moral- the shining city on the hill. Introspection and self-doubt are important things- in moderation- but you can’t live on that stuff.
