Actor vs Cowboy

This article discusses the possible comparison between current President W Bush and former President Ronald Reagan. It's pretty interesting overall. I know some would argue about its description of former President Clinton, but I think the contrast in responsibility it shows between Mr Reagan and Mr Bush is quite valid and vitally important when examining our moral inventory.
...on both foreign and domestic policy [emphasis added] Mr. Reagan showed both some pragmatism and some sense of responsibility. These are attributes sorely lacking in the man who claims to be his political successor.
I don't often agree with Krugman, but I think he makes a pretty good point here.
