Romney famously distanced himself from Ronald Reagan during the 1990s:
Romney in 1994: “I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.”
Now Romney is bragging via his national communications director that his new tax plan “goes the full Reagan” (which I guess is a reference to the “full Monty,” which nowadays means full frontal nudity – brings new meaning to “the gipper”).

It’s like Romney is trying to posthumously baptize Ronald Reagan and convert him to Romney-ism. There is truly nothing Mitt Romney won’t say to get elected.
