Reagan was to the right and he stood no chance. I don't give a hoot in hell what the "conventional wisdom" is. This country has had a wake up call to the disgrace that is liberalism and is fed up with political nonsense and idiocy from the left. We need to settle on a solid conservative candidate and stop Parroting the left's talking points.
