Re: Going Negative

Reagan also quipped about Pat Brown’s despicable attack that “John Wilkes Booth was a Democrat, I believe.”

My favorite Reagan slam on liberals from that period was his line: “A liberal’s idea of getting tough on crime is to give out longer suspended sentences.”

Or, during the Berkeley campus protests by the hippies in 1970: “I had a nightmare last night: I dreamed I owned a laundromat in Berkeley.”
