Full story: Fox 31 KDVR

Economists overwhelmingly say the current recession is far worse. The recession Reagan faced lasted for 16 months; this one is in its 23rd month.

As usual, and predictably so, the left-wing, debt spending loving crowd has chosen to spin the "facts??" to their own ends. To bad none of them have the guts to verbally go after the seriously heinous destructors of the American economy, ie. Pelosi, Reid and the rest of their ilk! Journalistic Integrity...an oxymoron is there ever was one!

THIS is "going rogue"
Fellhauer:“One more quick question, President-elect Obama’s birthplace over in Kenya, is that going to be a national spot to go visit, where he was born?”
Kenyan Ambassador Ogego:“It’s already an attraction. His paternal grandmother is still alive.”
Fellhauer:“His birthplace, they’ll put up a marker there?”
Ogego:“It would depend on the government. It’s already well known.”
http://my.wrif.com/mim/index.php...
Later on, Ogego’s assistant, denying that Obama was born in Kenya, insisted Ogego was speaking about Barack Obama Sr., and not President-elect Obama. She said she could not say why Ogego responded the way he did. Listening to the radio interview in its entirety, it is very obvious the interviewers were all talking about President-elect Barack Obama and not his father. We would also expect that Ogego would have said that Obama was not born in Kenya, but there is an attraction there to honor his father. If it were true that Ogego was referring to Obama’s Sr. and not Obama Jr., we should have heard about and received credible evidence as to what preparatory steps had already been taken in Kenya to honor the birth place of Obama Sr. In evaluating Ogego’s statement, we have to also remember that Obama’s grandmother also said that Obama Jr. was born in Kenya. Hence, Ogego’s assistant’s claim that Ogego thought they were talking about Obama’s father does not appear credible.
It is alleged that the Kenyan government authorities have refused to cooperate and have thwarted all efforts by anyone to obtain any documents concerning Obama.
Obama has refused all effort to have him release the following documents, relying on sealing of records and/or privacy laws: Punahou High School records, Occidental College records, Columbia College records, Columbia Thesis paper, Harvard College records, Selective Service Registration, medical records, Illinois State Senate records, Illinois State Senate schedule, Law practice client list, Certified Copy of original Birth Certificate, Harvard Law Review articles that were published, University of Chicago scholarly articles, exit and entry immigration records covering all of Obama's travels out of the United States; passports; and record of baptism, if any.

I see the dog crap, and it ain't Reagan. Reagan fixed Jimmy's major malfunction and set the Country up for 25 years of success. No, the lumps are the delusional like downhome.

Before you go and place Reagan alongside Washington, you should remember that even the Great Communicator could not persuasively explain some of the major contradictions in his own record. Reagan never submitted a balanced budget to Congress despite his commitment to fiscal restraint, and the national debt tripled during his presidency. While insisting that his administration would never negotiate with terrorists, the president secretly approved the trading of weapons for hostages that became public knowledge during the Iran-contra scandal. And although he expressed a genuine compassion for the poor -- a sympathy so great that he occasionally sent personal checks to people who wrote to him about their situaation his policies exacerbated the disparity between rich and poor.
