Let me get this straight, Reagan was the greatest modern president, he turned the US into a debtor nation, cut social programs, supported Sadam, sold Iran thousands of missiles, armed and trained those who became the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and married religion with conservatism. There anything else?

Oh and how he screwed over the working class for eight straight years, coddled big oil, sold weapons to terrorists, promoted unworkable economics because it benefited his rich friends, and raised taxes nationwide six times.

But he gave pretty speeches and waved the flag a lot, and wasn't a Democrat, and that's all modern conservatives really care about any more.

He was charismatic and looked good on television. Oh, and the Russians were scared of him, because they thought he was crazy.
I think 'Crazy' is the main banner republicans rally around.
They have been trending more and more in that direction over the last few decades.
Republicans aren't trending toward crazy. They have a deep and legitimate concern about the government sending someone to every single American over 65 and deciding if they should live or die. These death panels Obama is proposing really are....
Oh. Wait. Wait a minute. Yep.
That's crazy all right.
