Wacky lefty Ronald Reagan slams the GOP


Remember when Ronald Reagan was a lefty? I sure as hell don’t.

But he was, once upon a time. Check out this radio program from 1948, where he bashes Taft-Hartley, goes after the GOP for its policies favoring the rich, and attacks corporate profiteerism.

He then introduces Minneapolis Mayor Hubert Humphrey, who in this recording sounds as though he’s been inhaling helium.
