Chucky: Reaganism Is Dead
The King of the Sunday no one cares but him and his family press conferences, NY Senator Chuck Schumer, made some more stupid comments:
As appeared in the NY Daily News:
Chuck swung by the Daily News for an editorial board meeting this morning, which you’ll be able to read more about in tomorrow’s News.
A couple of tidbits from his broader discussion (forthcoming in book form) of how he sees the shifting terrain and the Democrats’ edge struck me:
“We’re in better shape than [Republicans] are, because they don’t realize that Reaganomics is dead, that the Reagan philosophy is dead,” he said. “We realize that New Deal democracy, which is still our paradigm, which is sort of appeal to each group … that doesn’t work any more.”
He had said a bit earlier, “The old Reagan theory which dominated — which is, ‘Government is bad, it’s out of touch, chop off its hands as soon as it moves.’ — is over.”
