Let's deflate the myth of Ronald Reagan

This from a comment thread on the Charleston Tea Party blog. Apparently, he compared Herman Cain to Ronald Reagan and I took him to task on it:
I think all these comparisons to Reagan are irrelevant to the young people who didn’t even know who he was. And besides Reagan may have had so-called leadership, but what did he lead us in to? And how far away did Reagan stray away from his conservative principles? Reagan was horrible on paper–and judged by traditional conservatism–and yet his myth still lives on today.

I think these Reagan comparisons will back fire when people read about his horrible record.

And I’ll give them a hand:

The Sad Legacy of Ronald Reagan

The Reagan Fraud

The Myth of Reaganomics
