In Response to Re: Tea Party ot Taliban?:
Reagan, actually, said that?????...............WOW!
But hink about it..........it does seem that TODAY'S GOP and tea party, are very similar to the Taliban. The poster shows that............

Yep, Raygun actually said that. In fact, he called the Taliban "Freedom Fighters", and gave them all kinds of rockets and missles and guns and ammo to fight the Russians with. Raygun was a firm believer in the kindergarten mentality that the enemy of my enemy is my friend, so he thought anyone who'd wanna take on Russia MUST be good. But like so many of Raygun's policies, it wasn't true then, and it's not true now.

Actually, Reagans strategy was brilliant and was extremely effective in the 80's. Some "kindergartners" believe everything the other party does is wrong...they're often referred to as "political bigots".
And "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" philosophy is often illustrated by several individuals on this forum and IMO, is more reflective of adolescent females....just saying....
