Shockwave 1981 – A Dozen Ronald Reagans Part Nine -Replay

A tremendous upheaval in politics occurred with a new President influenced by new media and speaking new political language, with a willingness to bend the rules. The upending culminates in a radical foreign policy no one expected and few, at that time, understood, so different it was literally thought to be from outer space. We discuss:

  • An Election Changes Everything
  • A President Changes Norms
  • A Secretary of State Loses Favor with the White House
  • Secretaries Make Shocking Statements
  • Springsteen is Angry

We can only discuss so much on the program of course, but for those who are subscribed to the My History Can Beat Up Your Politics Extra Premium Podcast, you’ll get more.
