Speaking to a crowd at the Des Moines at the Iowa State Fair on Thursday, Democrat presidential candidate and former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, was asked who his favorite past presidents were.
One of Webb’s answers was to be expected by a Democrat, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but one was particularly surprising for a member of the Democrat Party, a party that has moved further to the political left than Karl Marx — a party that currently has an anti-freedom admitted socialist nipping at the heals of frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
Webb, who opposes the Obama Iran Deal and is a highly decorated military veteran who was the Secretary of the Navy in the Reagan administration, told the crowd that along with FDR, Webb’s other favorite former president is — get this — Ronald Reagan, the most conservative — and many would argue — the only true conservative president since Calvin Coolidge!
“I served in the Reagan administration, and I will tell you the Reagan administration did a terrific job — whether you agree with them politically or not — of putting strong people into the administration, giving them guidance, and having them step forward and lead.”
“In a Webb administration, we will do that,” Webb promised. “We will bring the greatest minds in America to the table — give them direction as to where we want this country to go, and have them lead,” he told the crowd.
