AMERICAblog: Because a great nation deserves the truth: “Reagan was a controversial president to say the least. Many people with AIDS, and their friends and families, are convinced that Reagan is at least partly responsible for the millions of deaths of people with AIDS who were ignored during Reagan’s 8 years in office. And that’s just for starters. This is not the kind of president you honor on your national currency, not until there’s a national consensus about his place in history, and that consensus has hardly been reached.
It’s time for fair-minded Americans to draw a line in the sand. Demand that Republicans stop using Reagan’s death for their own partisan political gain. When Democrats held an uplifting funeral for Paul Wellstone, Republicans twisted its message and lied to the American people about it being a ‘election’ rally. Now that the Republicans are ACTUALLY USING A man’s death to benefit their party, turnabout is more than fair play.”
