Gotta agreed with Biden, Kamala's HC plan is double talk.

I was in college in 1971, now I'm on Medicare, sounds topical.

And yet, we have people on C-D reaching back to the 1960s to talk about a comment Lyndon B. Johnson said about "I'll have those N words voting Democrat for 200 years". And that comment couldn't be confirmed by anyone other than his airplane stewardess, some 30 years later.

that's b/c liberals are always calling Republicans racist so we dive into the history of racism which is linked to your party.

nobody is talking about LBJ if you guys stop calling republicans racist.

Good, then maybe your side can stop dredging up Benghazi and other long dead issues !

As for this revelation, the release of this tape is CURRENT news, and quite shocking. For many people, Reagan walked on water.To hear him refer to blacks as "monkeys" is disturbing. Shows that, even in the people we hold up high, racism can exist.

Yep, old Ronnie who started his campaign by declaring states rights within a few miles of where the Civil Rights Workers were murdered in the 60's....

Like Trump...not a racist bone in his body. There didn't have to be. He never had to deal with anyone other than white men.

Reagan was a racist. We knew that based on policy, but now we have his own words to confirm his racism.

State rights are not inherently racist. That's a liberal lie and it was Democrats who used state rights argument to justify slavery and segregation, not Republicans.

If I say states should be allowed to make their own abortion laws, that's not racist.

The amount of scandals, arrests and convictions in old Ronnies admin hit one of the highest in history. His rankings among POTUS are very so-so. His economic policies are thought by many to represent the beginning of the end and are the opposite that many of the righties here profess now (Ronnie loved outsourcing and stopped enforcing the Sherman act....in other words, he loved monopolies, etc.).....

But since the GOP has to try and drag up SOMEONE who they can point too...they've made RR their hero. Even the fact that his wife believed in the occult doesn't swing them...nor that he was divorced, an actor and a snitch (he gained power and favor turning in his fellow in Hollywood to the FBI as "commies")...

But, hey, he had the "GOP Brand" and his acting experience meant he could recite lines well.
