so ive been debating asking this for a while b/c im not sure how it will be received. i learned a lot of modern US History stuff this summer and im a little confused as to why Reagan is beloved so much. i mean, during the primaries, the conservative talking heads are always wishing they had another Reagan, but from my texts the guy doesnt really live up to the hype. other than being a good speaker and ending welfare programs, what did he do to get this god-like status in the GOP?
i like to think my text is pretty equal in terms of political parties b/c he was fairly unbiased about every president, pointing out flaws and greatness for all of them (except Bush Jr). its just...Reagan came off less than i expected for someone who is usually listed as one of our greater presidents. what am i missing?
ETA: i was really looking forward to reading about Reagan based on all the things that are said about him...how wonderful he was, how he was a savior to the GOP, how ppl to this day love him (like my parents), and b/c he was president when i was born. but nothing stuck out in my text book, so i did some basic research online and didnt find much of anything there either. WHAT AM I MISSING?!Answer Question
what did he do to get this god-like status in the GOP?
