Is that why Ronald Reagan idolized FDR?

Is the Democratic Party's move away from racists of that ilk why Reagan explained his party affiliation change with his comment: 'I didn't leave the party-- the party left me'?

I wasn't aware that RR 'idolized' FDR, can you support that statement?. It was the Democrat Party's tilt toward communism that caused RR to leave it. The Liberal/communist Democrats never did shift away from their racist roots, as their affirmative action legislation demonstrates.

One may quibble with the word's accuracy, but there is simply no doubt FDR was Reagan's great political north star.

Most probably don't know that Reagan, like Walter Cronkite, at one time was a member of the United World Federalists, whose main position was advocacy of world government. "Up until 1960 Reagan, a leading member of United World Federalists (whose purpose was to merge America into a world government), was a charter member of Americans for Democratic Action. Reagan was also a member of the National Advisory Council of the American Veterans Committee[10] that was supposedly "under communist influence.""

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself a New Dealer to the core. He summarized his views in this way: I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didnt trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasnt enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine. When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded he was just spouting Republican propaganda.</div></div>

Might I suggest you read his memoirs before you make any further silly statements.

Were his memoirs written before or after he became non compos mentis?

Don't you agree that his contemporaneous commentary when he DID think that way is more revealing than his hide-and-seek self-serving retrospective on his own view, tailored by the passage of time, his failing mind, and political exigencies?

He wanted a world government that the US would merge into, and by the comments I provided above, was convinced that a socialized medical system, among other socialist/Communist governmetn ideas, was best.

Even given llotter's idea that the PARTY moved to Communism, isn't it fairly clear that Reagan was right there with them (by those quotes)?

Your quotes are a grotesque distortion.

What Reagan recounted was that as a youth he bought into Marxist/fascist jibba-jabba ... and that as he gained real worled experience, he realized that the demkrook agenda was pure idiocy.

Might I suggest you visit a public library and borrow a opy to read before you make any further such ridiculous statements.

The links to former communists, in the Republican pundit arena, and at the AEI, is astounding!

I consider any later memoir from Reagan discussing those matters to likely be self-serving and fact-trimming, esp. compared to his contemporaneous remarks.

Continuing his charter membership in the ADA (certainly a left-leaning org) until **1960** was not a youthful continuation, as he was a mature man by then.

In any case, it's clear why and that he was indeed a huge FDR fan, whether 'idolize' is an appropriate word or not (and it appears it is).

Yes, Irving Kristol, Bill Kristol's father, was close to being the founder of the neo-cons (I think he was), and his brand of 'new' (neo-)conservatism came directly out of his hard Trotskyite leftist doctrinaire politics. Fanaticism that simply went from the extreme left to the right side, with fanaticism the only thing in common.

Yep, and there is a whole list of them, who became NEOCONS.

They ARE the threat to democracy.

The book and movie, The Shock Doctrine, proves it.

The Rise Of The Vulcans as well, proves it.

But as we know, Repiglicans don't read books.
