My take on the world. My wife often refers to this as the WWW (Weird World of Washburn)

Who Sounds Like Ronald Reagan?

The search in the Republican primary is to find the candidate who will be "just like Reagan".

Here is Reagan in his own words as he campaigned for Barry Goldwater.

After seeing this ask yourself:
Which of the current GOP candidates sounds like Ronald Reagan, the most mainstream of mainstream Republicans?

The Rudy Guiliani? No
John McCain? No.
Mitt Romney No.
Mike Huckabee. No.
Fred Thompson? Sometimes; except on foriegn policy.

The candid, truthful answer is that Ronald Reagan sounds like Ron Paul. The reson for this is straight-forward. Both men share the same philosophical underpinning of their politics: Freedom at home, sound money, sound fiscal policy, and a humble, non-interventionist foreign policy.
