What WOULD Reagan Do?

About an hour ago I tweeted that I'd just watched Sen. John McCain live on (where else?) Fox News, slamming Obama for the violence in the Middle East, and so much more, before ending with his claim that his guidance in these matters, and possibly all others, was, as he put it "WWRRD--What Would Ronald Reagan Do?"

My tweet brought some inspired responses from followers, such as "Send Marines to Lebanon" (which Reagan did, and 241 died before he hastily pulled them out) and "Trade guns to a terror state for possible hostages" (which he also did, involving Iran and the Contras) or "Invade Grenada again."   Or as one put it, "what would ronald reagan do? use the excuse of embassy protests to sell arms to iran."   Use Comments section here to provide your own.

Reagan has a legacy so distorted by the Conservative idolization of him that we may never have a clear picture of the real man behind the television set beyond the elaborate myth now concocted around him. Did he really rid the world of commie scum? Did destroy or save our economy? Check out my portrait of The Gipper and help me figure it out on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/02/happy-100th-gipper.html with some Cold War Hollywood!
