Reagan and historical revisionism

Reagan Without Revisionism?

This weekend is the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan with many events scheduled throughout the country. In particular, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library here in Simi, CA is having a centennial celebration, focusing on the Gipper’s accomplishments without, of course, acknowledging his failures.

NPR is featuring a great story today about the growing, largely unbalanced myth of President Reagan’s legacy, mostly fueled by the right-wing, anti-tax historical revisionism of Grover Norquist and others.
