Why Republicans should start acting like Reagan

Our economy desperately needs Republicans to put politics aside - and work with President Obama and Democrats to pass a common-sense economic stimulus to put millions of Americans back to work. That doesn't mean Republicans have to act like "socialists" - or spend money like drunken sailors. All it means is that Republicans have to act like Reagan - and show the same respect to the office of the Presidency that Democrats gave Reagan thirty years ago.
