Michael Reagan: My dad might be too moderate for today’s GOP

Will Rahn Senior Editor

Michael Reagan, the son of former U.S. president Ronald Reagan, told Fox News on Tuesday that his father might not able to win the nomination in today’s GOP.

“If you look at my father and you just knew him as governor — raised taxes, signed an abortion bill, no-fault divorce, and a few other things — today, the argument against him would come from the right, not from the left,” Reagan said. “He would have trouble getting his own nomination, but yet he ended up being the greatest president in our lifetimes.”

“We need to look at the whole package, the whole picture, everybody, and stop nit-picking ourselves to death,” he continued.

Reagan, a former talk show host, is considering a run against California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein in 2012.
