Whole Lot of Hate

The Reagan-haters are coming on pretty strong over at this Washington Post chat. Nearly every question is along the lines of "Why isn't anyone mentioning (insert horrible thing done by Reagan) at all this week?"

A couple of commenters are offended by this. To them, I would say, it's Reagan's admirers' own fault for refusing to acknowledge any of his mistakes in their efforts to rewrite history and make Reagan a hero. As Kaiser's answers make clear, he didn't save the world. It's not even fair to say he won the Cold War. Doing so is an insult to Gorbachev and all of the people who were living over there and fighting for change.
