Grover's been belching up these Reagan tweets regularly (see also here and here)—so it's about time we asked a few pointed questions:

1) Why is Grover touting a Republican administration that's three decades old—while ignoring the one that ended just 3 1/2 years ago?

2) Could the reason for (1) be that 8 years of Bush/Cheney produced fewer jobs than have been created in under three years of the Obama administration?

3) Since he thinks '83-'84 was the GREATEST RECOVERY EVAH, why doesn't Grover advocate a return to those tax rates?

4) Based on his enthusiasm for Reagan's policies, is Grover calling for another stimulus, since Reagan was a much bigger spender than Obama?

Just asking.
