Reagan / Bush, 1984

McLaughlin, John
January 1982
National Review;1/22/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p22
The article discusses the political and administrative performance of U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Reagan is considering the view that to get anything accomplished as President one needs eight years. A good aspect of the Reagan Administration is the change in conservatives' perception of politician George Bush. When Reagan chose his leading opponent in the primaries to join him on the ticket, many conservatives were embarrassed. At the time of the assassination attempt on Reagan, Bush's utterances and deportment were letter-perfect.
