Ronald Reagan was a shameless liar. He lied about welfare queens. He lied about the benefits of trickle down economics. He even lied about his military service.. He probably lied about not knowing about the arms for hostages deal.
And who can forget his confident assertion that trees cause more pollution than automobiles?
Reagan was a liar. Or maybe he was just an ignorant idiot. Take your pick.
He lied about welfare queens? Then why did Bill Clinton sign welfare reform ten years later?
He lied about supply side economics? Then explain the unprecedented booming economy from 1984 to 1999.
He lied about his military service? How? He enlisted as an Army Reserve private in Iowa in 1937. In 1938 he was promoted to 2nd Lt in the Officer Reserve Corps. Reagan was on active duty for the first time on April 18, 1942. Reagan had nearsightedness, so he was classified for limited service only so he could not go overseas. His first assignment was at the San Francisco Port of Embarkation at Fort Manson, California. As a liaison officer of the Port and Transportation Office. Upon the approval of the AAF, he applied for a transfer from the Cavalry to the Army Air Force on May 15, 1942, and was assigned to AAF Public Relations and subsequently to the First motion picture base in Culver City. On January 14, 1943 he was promoted to First Lieutenant. He returned to the 1st Motion Picture Unit after completing this duty and was promoted to Captain on July 22, 1943. In January 1944, Captain Reagan was ordered to temporary duty in NYC to participate in the opening of the sixth War Loan Drive. He was re-assigned to the 18th AAF Base Unit on November 14, 1944, where he remained until the end of WWII He was recommended for promotion to Major on February 2, 1945, but this recommendation was disapproved on July 17 of that year. He returned to Fort Macarther California, where he was separated from active duty on December 9, 1945. By the end of the war, his units had produced some 400 training films for the AAF. His reserve commission was terminated on April 1,1953.

The only fun that Repubs have is destroying our country. If it is bad for the country they are for it. Their fun is seeing people starve and seeing the rich get richer. They want to be the only ones left on this earth. They hate everyone and their hearts are black as coal.

he conservative Republican hero Ronald Wilson Reagan was one of the worst US presidents in history, because what he did in office to placate the super-rich directly has led to the economic destruction of the middle class. This, despite the accolades of the lying republicans and the MSMís lack of reporting the truth behind the puppet for the Rich, Ronald Wilson Reagan. Reaganís deregulation policies, for instance, have proven over the years to be deadly for the economic well-being of the American economy:

You can thank The Gipper for the birth of the current mortgage crisis. As William Kleinknecht, author of The Man Who Sold the World, put it, Reagan pushed for the elimination of all ceilings on interest rates and restrictions on loans, with his goal to "allow all depository institutions to make the same type of loans in whatever amount they see fit." The subsequent Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982 enabled lenders to issue adjustable rate and interest-only mortgages, the drivers of the current mortgage meltdown.

Overall his policies started the American economy on a steady spiral downhill and have not recovered since:

We have gone, when Reagan came into office we were the largest exporter of manufactured goods and the largest importer of raw materials on the planet. And the largest creditor. More people owed us money than anybody else in the world. Now just twenty eight years later we're the largest importer of finished goods, manufactured goods, exporter of raw materials which is kind of the definition of a third world nation and we're the most in debt of any country in the world. This is the absolute consequence of Reaganomics.

www.thomhartmann.com ...

Reaganís tax cuts for the rich were the main blow overall to the economic health of America. Indeed, as history records every time a major tax reduction for the rich occurred, usually under republican conservative policies, the economy nose-dived into recession or depression.

Then came Reaganomics. Taking his cues from the conservative billionaires who fund right-wing think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, Reagan cut top marginal tax rates on the rich from 74 percent to 38 percent. Predictably, there was an immediate surge in the marketsófollowed by the worst crash since the Great Depression and the failure of virtually the entire nationís savings-and-loan banking system.

The theory behind this is simple. Despite the lies and distortions from conservative republican and tea party propaganda, when taxes go down for the rich they donít invest in jobs they invest that extra money in speculative adventures that make them richer personally, that never includes jobs added to the economy. In-fact the lost revenue from the tax cuts ALWAYS depresses the economy!

As Beinhart noted, the massive Republican tax cuts of the 1920s (from 73 to 25 percent) led directly to the Roaring Twentiesí real estate and stock market bubbles, a temporary boom, and then the crash and Republican Great Depression that started in 1929. Then, from the 1930s to the 1980s, rates on the very rich went back up into the 70 to 90 percent range. As a result, the economy grew steadily, and for the first time in the history of our nation we went 50 years without a crash or major bank failure. It was also during this period that the American workerís wages increased enough to produce the strongest middle class this nation has ever seen.
www.truth-out.org ...

So on the 100th birthday of Ronald Wilson Reagan, please donít believe the distorted hype coming from the MSM and the liars from the republican conservative demagogues; understand the reality of this destructive president whose only function as president was to make life better for the rich and super-rich at the expense of the ordinary hard working American middle-class.

The neocons would have us believe that Reagan was also a foreign policy genius. Space prevents me from detailing his administration's adventures and blunders in Grenada, in Beirut and the visit to the Nazi cemetery in Bitburg. So let's just remember aid to the Nicaraguan Contras, whom Reagan likened to the Founding Fathers, and the revelation that the CIA had produced a manual that taught them, in part, how to kidnap and "neutralize" government officials. Iran-Contra-the secret and illegal selling of weapons to our sworn enemy, Iran, to then fund the Contras-was both a constitutional disaster and a foreign policy blunder about which we were asked to believe Reagan knew nothing. His administration was also thoroughly corrupt: Eight senior officials in his administration were indicted.

Fabrication, lying, cruel and counterproductive policies at home and abroad, bloating of the deficit, widening the gap between rich and poor: These are the Reagan legacy. As Republican candidates seek to wear his mantle, their Democratic opponents need to remind Americans exactly what they are putting on.

Check again. Clinton deregulated the banks and lending institutions during his term.

Bus II tried in both his first and second terms to have the regulations reinstated and could not get it passed with a dem controlled senate.

Other examples abound: During a 1983 Congressional Medal of Honor ceremony Reagan told a story about military heroism that New York Daily News columnist Lars-Erik Nelson wrote never happened. Nelson had checked the citations on all 434 Congressional Medals of Honor awarded during WWII. The scene Reagan described did appear, however, in the 1944 film A Wing and a Prayer. Larry Speakes' response? "If you tell the same story five times, it's true."
