Over at USS Clueless, Steven den Beste gives a good fisking to a recent article on Reagan's presidency in the New York Times by professor John Diggins of the City University of New York.
Naturally, the comparisons between Reagan and our current president are made ---but without the benefit of the truth or evidence. Diggins writes:
The difference between Mr. Reagan and Mr. Bush's militant brain staff is that he believed in negotiation and they in escalation. They wanted to win the cold war; he sought to end it.
Is that really how the cow ate the cabbage? Read the whole thing. It's a thorough-going dismantlement of all things bullshit and Carter.
