El Rushbo rejects the absurd argument– propagated by the likes of Chris Matthews— that Ronaldus Magnus would have been too moderate for the Tea Party…

Ronald Reagan was the Tea Party in the 1970’s.

Reagan led a revolt against the Republican establishment! He led a revolt against Republican donors of the day. He was despised in his day by the Republican establishment!

To Maha Rushie’s point– does the following sound more like the Frank Luntz talking points parroted by Chris Christie? Or those sentiments echoed by the Tea Party?

Less government. Get off my back. Get out of my pocket. And let me have more control over my own destiny.

Let us not forget that the media welcomed Ronald Reagan’s victories then, as warmly as it welcomes the Tea Party’s victories now…
