Reagan also maintained a 7%+ unemployment rate for 6 of his 8 years as president;
"A Poor Report Card-When Reagan entered office, the unemployment rate was around 7%. Together
with the Federal Reserve's tight monetary policy, he instigated a deep recession in order to bring down
inflation, which averaged around 10% in 1981. The result was that in December 1982, the
unemployment rate hit 10.7%, the highest rate since the Depression. Although unemployment has
declined since then, it is now only between 7% and 7.5%-about the same as when he first took office,
and the recovery seems to be coming to an end. During Reagan's entire administration, the unemployment
rate has been higher than when he took office. His claims that he has reduced unemployment are
true only because economic policies under his administration caused unemployment rates to climb so
high. In fact, he has only reduced the unemployment that he caused in the first place. One might call it
"tight shoe economics," where we praise the person who removes our tight shoes, while forgetting he
caused our initial misery by putting them on us."

Reagan was a POS and a blemish to American economic policy.
Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style
K. Alan Snyder - 08/20/08

Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself “a New Dealer to the core.” He summarized his views in this way:“I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didn’t trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasn’t enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine.” When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded “he was just spouting Republican propaganda.”

Wow - where did those 1 million jobs per month come from?
Your imagination it seems - history calls you a blatant liar.
But we all knew this already.
Feel like being made a fool of again Ms. Supposed Adjunct Instructor - come on back.
Reagan didn't undo decades of Democrat damage overnight, gopher girl.

Comparing the two presidencies at identical moments in their first terms is a contrast in style and substance. In September 2011, President Obama has just announced yet another plan for job growth before a joint session of Congress. Last month, his economic plan managed to create zero jobs.

At this same moment in 1983, Ronald Reagan’s policies were about to create 1.1 million jobs in the month of September alone, the biggest one-month job gain since the Bureau of Labor Statistics officially began keeping track back in February 1939.

barock turned recession to global depression.

Your opinions mean nothing, and your argument "Reagan didn't undo decades of Democrat damage overnight, gopher girl.
Comparing the two presidencies at identical moments in their first terms is a contrast in style and substance" is hypocritical at best. Nixon / Ford retained the White House from 1968 through 1978, so your decades bullshit just flew out the window. On the other hand, Obama was handed the Great Recession, and yet you expect this issue to be cured overnight?

You sound like the fool you are.

Next time you feel like retorting, back your OPINIONS with links and verifiable facts, as I do consistently. Your opinions are worthless - the facts prove you to be a liar.

You claimed Reagan created 1 million jobs a month you imbecile.

Barry and Hillary had their people in the most dangerous country on the face of the planet, proper security should have been paramount. Christ, no Americans should have even been there.
Then the tax cuts that drained the tresury should have never happened nor should the republicans in 2010 held the nation hostage for their extensions knowing in 2010 people were serving in hostile nations for the united states and needed beefed up security under those situations.

The GOP fought for and reeceived an extention of the Bush Tax cuts, then turned around and reduced funding to the State Department causing the deaths of Stevens and 3 Contractors.

One of Rearan's lasting policies is the criminalization of mental disease. Reagan with his cuts stopped funding for the mentally ill, forcing the closing of institutions to treat the mentally ill. With facilities being eliminated the Mentally Ill were housed in prisons around the country.

So other society put the mentally ill in prisons, I believe it was Hitler. Reagan and Hitler share at lease one belief.

Countries that pride themselves on being democracies and respecting the rule of law have not set an example, far from it. Freedom of information is too often sacrificed to an overly broad and abusive interpretation of national security needs, marking a disturbing retreat from democratic practices. Investigative journalism often suffers as a result.

This has been the case in the United States (46th), which fell 13 places, one of the most significant declines, amid increased efforts to track down whistleblowers and the sources of leaks. The trial and conviction of Private Bradley Manning and the pursuit of NSA analyst Edward Snowden were warnings to all those thinking of assisting in the disclosure of sensitive information that would clearly be in the public interest.

US journalists were stunned by the Department of Justice’s seizure of Associated Press phone records without warning in order to identify the source of a CIA leak. It served as a reminder of the urgent need for a “shield law” to protect the confidentiality of journalists’ sources at the federal level. The revival of the legislative process is little consolation for James Risen of The New York Times, who is subject to a court order to testify against a former CIA employee accused of leaking classified information. And less still for Barrett Brown, a young freelance journalist facing 105 years in prison in connection with the posting of information that hackers obtained from Statfor, a private intelligence company with close ties to the federal government.

Unstainable tax cuts are bankrupting public finances not compensate package benefits for hourly wage earners. Reagan changed pension laws so that corporations could defer setteling those accounts and if necessary used employees deductions to finance business affairs of the Company.

Enron was the perfect example of how that went wrong, leaving employees retirement funds depleted when the company went belly up.

Republican marketing campaigns against unions and false information coupled with Right to Work Laws crippled unions. Same tactics employed to discredit ACA today,

Energy cost and the amount of defective products are chasing producers back to America

Watching Old people work in meaningless jobs after years of service to an employer who had no pension plans in place are making more people think twice about collective bargaining and the benefits of organizing.

beginning a career at 18 to 20, by the time someone is 55 to 60 they should be secure enough with a pension plan to retire and not have to work at A minimum wage job for Health care or to help cover medications.

The destruction you speak of was the housing market bubble and burst which had many a Democrat fingerprint on it. And you made my point: the less unions, the more likely work will come back to the US.
What policies did the Republicans have that destroyed unions? People realized the destruction of unions which is why they didn't support them. Look at what these unions are doing to state economies! They are bankrupting states such as California!
The American consumer is who is in charge of our jobs. Americans decided they want cheap imported products and they don't care where they are made. Americans want more for less, and that's not going to change anytime soon.
