In 1948 Ronald Reagan was a Democrat.Ã‚Â There are many in the Republican party who would like to have us forget this fact.Ã‚Â But in 1948, two years after the Republicans took control of congress during Truman’s presidency, Ronald Reagan called for the reelection of Harry Truman and the return of Democratic control of the congress.
In the following clip Reagan endorses Truman in his election bid and Hubert Humphrey for U.S. Senate. His comments are so different from how he governed as President it makes me wonder if his body and mind were taken over by some alien force.
At any rate, almost 60 years later we are seeing the truth that Reagan described then. H/T Thom Hartmann.
