Roger Fairfield: Remembering the GOP’s better days
Editor: Remember when President Reagan said: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall.” Remember when Russia was the Evil Empire and not a place to build hotels and seek dirt on political opponents. Remember when Republicans called it unconstitutional as President Obama used Executive Orders to circumvent Congress. Remember when Republicans cared about fiscal integrity and the federal deficit. Remember when top advisors of Republican presidents were not all in jail, indicted, quitting in mass, or writing books calling the President inept and chaotic. Remember when Republican presidents didn’t go into a rage every time they were criticized; and did not falsely call such critical stories and media fake news. Remember when Republican presidents were statesman, with dignity and strong moral character.
