Try all you may, but the World's press and Economic experts says otherwise. No one takes notice of a ignorant tea baggers rants, its all about forgeting what Republicans do in power. The damage to American reputation abroad and damage to the world economy. Starting with Reagan finishing with Bush. That was the start of it all. The only one with Romnesia is Mitt himself and his followers hoping that the rest will be the same

American's remember the Iran Contra, proping up the Shar of Iran, Watergate, Arming Saddam in Iraq , then bombing the crap out of him, Arming the Taliban with Reagan who inviting them to the whitehouse only to go to war with them later & finally the show stopper Bush and his war of lies and blowing up the world economy.

We have had presidents make many sacrifices for our people.

Now with Obama, we have a president that sacrifices others lives for his selfish ambitions.

Welcome to the new Democrat Party.

So you were a Hillary supporter? From your comments I'm surprised at your political diversity. Obama advertised "kenyan born"? Hmm... just goes to show that you can't trust a politician when it comes to truth in advertising, can you?

Obama is an accessory to murder, no ifs ands or buts.
Obama don't even wear an American flag pin that you can actually see. Also there is a youtube video of him just standing there with his hands crossed in front of him, while everyone around him had their hand on their heart. You know, to convince me that he was really born here, and really loves the USA, I would exspect more of a pattriotism outcome from this man than what I have seen.

So much to blame Obama 4 Americans> But just look at Bushes record 3,000 dead American Soldiers+ how many soldiers suffering every day of their life from wounds in the wars, Bush started with LIES. That our republican politicians vote (no) to help them when they come back from war. That Obama tried to help and all the middle class help for America voted (no) by the republicans. fact, the truth hurt.Does Bush have a problem sleeping??

Republicans in Power contines:

Nixon:
The final blow came with the decision by the Supreme Court to order Nixon to release more White House tapes. One of these became known as the ‘smoking gun’ tape when it revealed that Nixon had participated in the Watergate cover-up as far back as June 23, 1972. Around the country, there were calls for Nixon to resign.

Reagan & Bush Senior:

During the second half of the Iran-Iraq war, the Reagan Administration pursued several sanction bills against Iran; on the other hand, it established full diplomatic relations with Saddam Hussein’s government by removing it from the U.S. list of State Sponsors of Terrorism in 1984.[42] According to the American Senate Banking Committee, the administrations of Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush authorized the sale to Iraq of numerous dual use items, including poisonous chemicals and deadly biological viruses, such as anthrax and bubonic plague.[43] The Iran-Iraq War ended with both agreeing to a ceasefire in 1988. In 2000, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright expressed regret for that support.

Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden. Reagan fought a proxy war with the Soviet Union by training, arming, equipping, and funding Islamist mujahidin fighters in Afghanistan. Reagan funneled billions of dollars, along with top-secret intelligence and sophisticated weaponry to these fighters through the Pakistani intelligence service. The Talbian and Osama Bin Laden — a prominent mujahidin commander — emerged from these mujahidin groups Reagan helped create, and U.S. policy towards Pakistan remains strained because of the intelligence services’ close relations to these fighters. In fact, Reagan’s decision to continue the proxy war after the Soviets were willing to retreat played a direct role in Bin Laden’s ascendancy.

The top four things Republicans don't want you to know about their so called icon Reagan who just turns out is some mythical creation of Fox news who totally ignore the truth.

1: Reagan was a serial tax raiser. As governor of California, Reagan “signed into law the largest tax increase in the history of any state up till then.” Meanwhile, state spending nearly doubled. As president, Reagan “raised taxes in seven of his eight years in office,” including four times in just two years. As former GOP Senator Alan Simpson, who called Reagan “a dear friend,” told NPR,“Ronald Reagan raised taxes 11 times in his administration — I was there.”“Reagan was never afraid to raise taxes,” said historian Douglas Brinkley, who edited Reagan’s memoir. Reagan the anti-tax zealot is “false mythology,” Brinkley said.

2. Reagan nearly tripled the federal budget deficit. During the Reagan years, the debt increased to nearly $3 trillion,“roughly three times as much as the first 80 years of the century had done altogether.” Reagan enacted a major tax cut his first year in office and government revenue dropped off precipitously. Despite the conservative myth that tax cuts somehow increase revenue, the government went deeper into debt and Reagan had to raise taxes just a year after he enacted his tax cut. Despite ten more tax hikes on everything from gasoline to corporate income, Reagan was never able to get the deficit under control.

3. Unemployment soared after Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. Unemployment jumped to 10.8 percent after Reagan enacted his much-touted tax cut, and it took years for the rate to get back down to its previous level. Meanwhile, income inequality exploded. Despite the myth that Reagan presided over an era of unmatched economic boom for all Americans, Reagan disproportionately taxed the poor and middle class, but the economic growth of the 1980&#8242;s did little help them.“Since 1980, median household income has risen only 30 percent, adjusted for inflation, while average incomes at the top have tripled or quadrupled,” the New York Times’ David Leonhardt noted.

4. Reagan grew the size of the federal government tremendously. Reagan promised “to move boldly, decisively, and quickly to control the runaway growth of federal spending,” but federal spending “ballooned” under Reagan. He bailed out Social Security in 1983 after attempting to privatize it, and set up a progressive taxation system to keep it funded into the future. He promised to cut government agencies like the Department of Energy and Education but ended up adding one of the largest — the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, which today has a budget of nearly $90 billion and close to 300,000 employees. He also hiked defense spending by over $100 billion a year to a level not seen since the height of the Vietnam war.

America remembers Republicans in power, Romney wants you to forget.
