Who *hearts* Ronald Reagan

I wanted to post the link to Paul Krugman’s editorial “Debunking the Reagan Myth” which explains much more coherently and succinctly than I can why I found Obama’s Reagan comments last week so troubling. If he is that enamored with Ronald Reagan’s “dynamism” then I fear that as a country we will continue to build our economic future on outmoded, unsuccessful “trickle down” economic theory. We should be building a new future and seeking to solve problems in a different way – not in one that didn’t make the economic reality of the poorest any better.
