I'm totally disgusted with the end run this Dictator In Chief did around congress. Congress voted DOWN the dream act and the Dictator In Chief just shrugs his shoulders and does it by Executive Order. Laws? They have no meaning to this egotistical little man. The Constitution? Nope, doesn't apply to the ONE. Are dems. so blind or so stupid that they can't see what this man is doing? Are they so blinded by his aura that they can't understand that if he will do this while hoping to be reelected that when he has another 4 years, without the need to be reelected, he will do whatever he wants, no matter the constitution? He is a Dictator In Training, he has told us as much, remember his words to the Russian leader, "I can be more flexible" after the election. Just HOW many other "Executive Orders" is he capable of passing?

Child prostitutes from Boys Town and other orphanages in Nebraska as well as children procured from China were reportedly flown to Washington for sexcapades with Republican politicians. GOP lobbyist Craig Spence and a number of GOP officials in the administration and Congress were implicated in the scandal, including Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole’s liaison to the White House. Young male members of the military in Washington, DC were particularly sought after by the prostitution ring....

Although you are just one more hysterical, irrational liberal I will tell you, in reply to your post, misspellings and all.

Reagan WAS a very good president, he did make ONE HUGE mistake and that was his Amnesty Program. While on paper it made sense, what it did was ENCOURAGE more illegals to flood over the unprotected borders. As Republicans and many Democrats have been saying, SECURE THE BORDERS FIRST, then tackle the illegal immigration problem. Without secure borders every illegal given a free pass invites 10 more to come here illegally too and just wait it out. That, Boyo, is just common sense. Something that liberals seem to lack in spades.

You forgot VP was exposed by her husbands big mouth at party's when he had a few too many.

You also forgot that most democrats voted to go into Iraq and believed Saddam had WMD. Then you said Bush "lied" to them, that they were really gullible and after that..........you re-elected them.

Unfair, the uneducated women may vote for him, God only knows why, but THIS woman and all of her friends definitely will not vote for him and did not vote for him last time. Just as there are stupid men, there are stupid women who believe blindly this irrational rhetoric about the "War on Women". Girls, trust me, free birth control is not worth the damage this man will do if given 4 years, without the need to be reelected, to further ruin America.

Tony, as usual, cherry picks his facts.

I present the truth, something liberals are having a real hard time with lately.

"Ronald Reagan may have presided over the most significant tax reform effort in our nation’s history, yet historical revisionists are attempting to besmirch that legacy — while using him as a straw man against modern Republicans.

Saying Ronald Reagan raised taxes is like saying Michael Jordan was a guy who struck out a lot — or that he was a failed baseball player: It’s factually correct, but misleading, nonetheless.

I’ve decided to examine Reagan’s tax cuts and tax increases in order to set the record straight and end this tomfoolery.

Over the course of his two terms in office, Reagan presided over several changes to the tax code. What is important to remember — what is vital to understand — is that not all taxes are created equal.

When Democrats or media embrace Reagan for “raising taxes X number of times,” they are usually engaging in willful obfuscation. This is because they know that when most people hear the words,“tax hike,” they naturally assume you mean raising income taxes. But tax rates (both nominal and effective) dropped dramatically across-the-board during Reagan’s tenure.

Not only did the top individual income tax rate go from 70 to 28 percent!— but the tax code was also indexed for inflation (this is a big deal, because inflation had heretofore pushed people into higher tax brackets — a double whammy.)

Yet the notion that Reagan was a tax-hiker has persisted. In recent years, Republicans ranging from former Sen. Alan Simpson to Reagan aide Bruce Bartlett have been cited noting that Reagan raised taxes (he did.) But their statements are often taken out of context — as if to muddy the waters — to make it appear that Reagan was a fan of tax hikes.

Part 2:

"The typical tactic is to say Reagan raised taxes 11 or 12 times (the exact number depends on whom you ask.) But it’s unhelpful — in fact, it’s a bit misleading — to talk about how many times Reagan raised taxes. That’s because (as noted earlier) tax increases are not created equal. Some are much worse than others. And many of Reagan’s so-called “tax increases” were actually examples of ending deductions.

Overall, Reagan dramatically cut the most odious of taxes.

So, for those who care about the truth, here are some details. One of the tax increases Reagan signed (the Highway Revenue Act of 1982) was a temporary increase in the federal gas tax from 4 to 9 cents.(This could be thought of as a sort of “user fee,” inasmuch as the revenue generally went to roads and infrastructure.) Another was a cigarette tax (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985.) These are real tax increases, but should not be confused with the income tax."

Times have changed and Americans aren't as bright or concerned about positive out comes for their children as they were when President Reagan saved us from Carter.

But, We can't give up all hope just because the Democratic Party deteriorated from JFK and MLKjr to nothing more than cold hearted Pelosians and Obamites. One thing is clear, We MUST stop Obama and elect Romney Ryan in November. It may be America's last chance.

The Illegals are very happy. Obama proved he could care less about unemployed American Vets and other struggling Americans. He proved to be a real cold hearted Dictator when he legalized the Illegals during times of such high unemployment. After what he has done, Any American who would still Vote for him would have to be a really sick piece of Crapola.

As uaual, Ballybunion cherry picks what he considers "highlights" of Reagans career - without all of the facts - so allow me, since you posted only two;
