Liberal talk radio will say almost anything to attack Ronald Reagan. Lately, they've been in a dither over plans to curtail the Postal Service. So Reagan inspired shootings at the post office? On Thursday's edition of the Thom Hartmann Show, a caller insisted: "When Reagan took over, the tension in the post office went up and you start[ed] havin' shootings...because of th[ese] draconian rules that they put these people under, and the stress. " Hartmann replied: "I wouldn't disagree with that, and Reagan began the war on workers."
Hartmann lauded the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters as the rebuttal to Reagan: "By and large, this is a movement being driven by teenagers and people in their twenties who are looking at a world that thirty years of Reaganomics has handed them, or a country, anyway, that's a disaster explicitly because of crony capitalism, bought-off politicians, and supply-side economics."
