Craig Shirley: February 12, 2014



Craig Shirley discussed Ronald Reagan’s legacy-America’s Tea Party movement and recently wrote: ” “Reagan never saw himself as part of the Washington establishment — even after his two terms as president. As he was leaving the White House, Reagan said of the conservatives who had come to D.C. in 1980: ‘We were all revolutionaries.’ The modern American Tea Party embraces this attitude. Even as the Republican Party’s neo-conservative-Bush-establishment wing despises it. Which is one key reason why the GOP today looks like an unending war zone”. Craig Shirley has written two biographies about Ronald Reagan, including “Rendezvous with tea partyDestiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign that Changed America.” He is also the author of “December 1941: 31 Days that Changed America and Saved the World,” and president of Shirley & Banister Public Affairs. He worked on the Ronald Reagan presidential campaigns in 1980 and 1984.
