Realistic Summary
5 January 2007 | by (Silicon Valley) – See all my reviews

This is the best historical time-line I have seen of Reagan's presidency, especially the first days. The History Channel's and PBS's American Experience efforts in describing his presidency are largely puff pieces. Great detail is expended on how he courted the boll weevil democrats like Kent Hance to the expense of his Budget Director's, David Stockman, wishes. It lacks the acerbic edge of Charles Wheeler in the BBC documentary of the same name and is thus not a Reagan hit piece.

PS Those familiar with Texas politics of the time will remember Hance as using the "All hat and no cows" approach concocted by his campaign manager Karl Rove to soundly defeat George W. Bush when Dubya ran for congress in 1978.
