The Acting President Paperback – July 30, 1990. This is a great book, especially now, when the Republican party is so intent on rewriting history and trying to pass off Ronald Reagan as such a good President. He was good at protraying a President, but really, what with Reaganomics, not such a good one. I myself consider him to be one of the worst as far as the AIDS victims are concerned. Good read, need to be reminded of how it really was, not how some in our country seem to "dream" it was.

CBS correspondent Schieffer and his collaborator set the tone with a rueful subtitle. In their view, Reagan was a decidedly detached Chief Executive whose Hollywood training made him amenable to direction, if not manipulation. Unfortunately, Schieffer and Gates conclude, not all the President's men were reading from the stone script; indeed, deep ideological differences divided them, and they waged fierce internecine battles for their leaders attention and favor.
Bob Schieffer and Gary Paul Gates, The Acting President (New York: E. P. Dutton, 1989), 374. 15. The point that Reagan knew only vaguely what his aides did is not necessarily inaccurate. Speaking of the Evil Empire, Gaddis wrote in Foreign Affairs in 1994: Now that they are free to speak-and act-the people of the former Soviet Union appear to have associated themselves more closely with President Reagan’s famous indictment of that state as an ‘evil empire’ than with more balanced academic assessments.
