People in the media used to say that Reagan was dumb. (I suppose that is because all collectivists/progressives/socialists/communists think that those who disagree with their philosophy must be mentally deficient.) Here is something that Reagan said in 1961 (I got this from Newsmax):

Reagan said: "One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.”

I thought Reagan showed a lot of wisdom, which is a different property than raw intelligence. For example, Obama may be highly intelligent, but he seems to lack wisdom.
