Does Any This It Sound Familiar? Does It?

A Facebook friend passes this along:

--"He's been divorced and remarried. He can't commit to anything.
--"He's dangerously ignorant about international affairs. The Russian leaders will walk all over him."
--"He has no filter— doesn't think before he speaks."
--"Until recently, he was a Democrat. He's not a real Republican. He hasn't paid his GOP dues."
--"He used to be Pro Choice. Now, suddenly he's Pro Life?"
--"That can't be his real hair!" "He's a loose cannon. No one wants HIS finger on the nuclear button."
--"His opponent has the experience and political savvy to be president. He does not."
--"He's just not presidential."
--"His temperament disqualifies him from ever being Commander-In-Chief."
--"He's proven himself to be mentally unstable."
--"The military will never accept him as Commander-In-Chief. He's not smart enough."
--"The GOP doesn't want him to be the head of the party. He could never reach across the aisle to get anything done."
--"Most Republican voters will just stay home rather than go out and vote for him."
--"Evangelicals will never support him."
--"He says '(Lets) Make America Great Again'. How dare he say we aren't still great?"
--"His intellect is thinner than spit on a slate rock.
--"After all his gaffs, he doubles down on them instead of admitting he made a mistake."
--"He's threatening to upend our treaties and relationships with our allies by demanding that they pay for their own defense!"
--"Because of his gross factual errors he might take rash action and needlessly lead this country into open warfare!"
--"He's racist, xenophobic, and fuels the fires of hatred!"
--"The rising turnout of his voters are not loyal Republicans or Democrats and are alienated from both parties because neither takes a sympathetic view toward their issues.
--"The fact that he could be deemed a serious candidate for president is a shame and embarrassment for the country.
--"Is he Safe? ...he shoots from the hip ... he's over his head ... What are his solutions?
--"Voters want to follow some authority figure, a leader who can take charge with authority; return a sense of discipline to our government; and, manifest the willpower needed to get this country back on track -- Or at least a leader from outside Washington,"

Sound familiar? You've heard this all about Donald Trump, right?

But all this was said of Ronald Reagan in 1976 and 1980. Most of it was BY OTHER REPUBLICANS.
