The Dude defined the parameter of pushing an agenda. Reagan clearly stated the policies he was going to pursue once elected and executed accordingly. Trump same. Both also shared the trait of fighting back against the Media. With different styles of course.
You're a moron.

Seems it's the political "outsider" that gets poop done. Reagan had been in gov't a while anyway, but I wonder if he was more the 'lone wolf' type.

I agree with you. Reagan was kind of unique because he made the intellectual journey from the Left early in his career to ending up a rather principled conservative by the time he became Governor of California. This was despite his portrayal by the Media as the dumb, but happy warrior. I remember years ago reading a book that had copies of his personal correspondence to and from intellectuals, voters, other politicians, etc. It was quite enlightening because I came away from it thinking he was a pretty deep thinker. I did not think the puddle was too deep before I read that book.

Who held Senate in Reagan's two terms?

Republicans, or I should say Establishment Republicans.
The Dems controlled the House for those 8 years. That's why Reagan couldn't fulfill his whole agenda...
