Reaan???Ronald reagan was the worst president this country ever had Reagan was worse than Jimmy Carter

Ronald Reagan was one of the worst Presidents this country has seen. He was a total phony who would read from a script to hide his worsening dementia. He cared not an iota for the common man, but was a typical republican, only interested in enriching his big business buddies, and laying waste to the third world.

Least we forget, it was Reagan's policies that brought

1) Change to the federal tax system, giving massive tax breaks to the wealthy and big business, and shifting a horrendous tax burden to the middle class;

2) Change to environmental laws, wrecking havoc on natural resources, endangered species, and the health and welfare of all Americans;

3) Change to labor laws, wrestling hard-earned workers' rights from unions, and causing at least one industry, air traffic control, into paralysis, affecting the safety of air traffic for more than a year;

4) Change to American foreign policy, by selling arms to Iran, and forwarding the profits to right-wing Central American dictators to help fund their death squads;

5) Change to monetary policies resulting in his leaving office with the largest federal deficit yet seen in US history;

6) Change to education - when he could not disband the US Department of Education, as he campaigned to do - he succeeded in reducing Federal education spending by 50%, and ravaged local education control by diverting funding to the state leve.

Reagan was Probably the most overrated president in the history of America. His "trickle down" policies basically let the poor go to hell, while the privileged were allowed more privileges. Meanwhile, Reaganomics had a great success in raising national debt from $700 billion to $3 trillion.

He is given credit for ending the Cold War instead of the true heros like Gorbachev and to a lesser extent, Walesa. Communism was on its last legs anyway and the system was failing from within. Reagan didn't do much more than make a few nice, happy speeches.

The idea he supported freedom is a myth, shown by his support for brutal South American dictators which was/is glossed over. Reagan installed the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and propped up Saddam Hussein in Iraq despite the known atrocities. Later, the Republicans would do a HUGE U-turn on this, in their quest for oil.

And anyone who chooses shit like Donald Rumsfeld to work for them, can't be all that great.
Ronald Reagan: impressive facade, but mediocre presidency behind.

Four years as CinC.
There was no draft or war when Obama was of age.
There were both when Romney was. His choice - run & hide.
I wish you right whiners would quit using Libya as a political tool. There is no cover up. The decision not to go in was made by the military.. So really, how pathetic can you get.
One of our best military minds, Colin Powell, endorsed Obama.
Colin Powell is a good military mind, but he still votes race and everyone knows it. Not a surprise.
Obama is not somehow better than Romney because he didn't "run & hide" from military service....what he is, just what the father of one of the Navy Seals said he was in his direct response to Obama....he is "living life as a coward". So you may want to believe the Romney is a coward but the facts show now and will come out showing even more clearly later that Obama is a coward as well.
And I can't wait to see the libs squel when they find out that not only is Libya NOT just a "political tool" but it will be the downfall of your "messiah".
