<quoted text>what is it Reagan did for this country again?
Developed an economic policy that brought nothing but poverty and depression.

At his seventh press conference, President Reagan:

· Claims there are "a million more working than there were in 1980," though statistics show that 100,000 fewer people are employed.

· Responds to a question about the 17% black unemployment rate by pointing out that "in this time of great unemployment," Sunday's paper had "24 full pages of ... employers looking for employees," though most of the jobs available - computer operator, or cellular immunologist - require special training, for which his administration has cut funds by over 30%.

2/27/82
The Congressional Budget Office finds that taxpayers earning under $10,000 lost an average of $240 from last year's tax cuts, while those earning over $80,000 gained an average of $15,130.

11/25/82
The White House announces it is considering a proposal (conceived by Ed Meese) to tax unemployment benefits. This, says Larry Speakes, would "make unemployment less attractive."

12/8/83
In response to accusations that the administration's policies toward the poor are unnecessarily cruel, Ed Meese says "I don't know of any authoritative figures that there are hungry children. I've heard a lot of anecdotal stuff, but I haven't heard any authoritative figures...I think some people are going to soup kitchens voluntarily. I know we've had considerable information that people go to soup kitchens because the food is free and that that's easier than paying for it...I think that they have money.

Reagan Task Force Finds No Evidence of Great Hunger - The Washington Post

1/31/84
President Reagan on Good Morning America, defending his administration against charges of callousness: "You can't help those who simply will not be helped. One problem that we've had, even in the best of times, is people who are sleeping on the grates, the homeless who are homeless, you might say, by choice."

7/24/84
At his 26th press conference, President Reagan claims that "not one single fact of figure" backs up Democratic "demagoguery" that his budget cuts have hurt the poor. The next morning, a congressional study reports that cuts in welfare have pushed more than 500,000 people - the majority of them children - into poverty".

8/3/84
The Census Bureau reports that 35.3 million Americans were living in poverty in 1983 - an 18-year high rate of 15.2% of the population.

Let alone treason by selling weapons to a country that was on enemy, importing cocaine into the U.S., overthrowing a democratically elected leader.

Emboldening republicans, teabaggers and some democrats with his "legacy" of failure.

The worst, most corrupt president of the 20th century.

Not caring what the international press writes keeps partisan politics alive and well.
If you really want the facts and not just reinforcement of your own opinion you consider looking at more sources than you have been.
Syria is a no win battle for us and Obsma made a costly mistake by getting us involved in the first place. If Syria is a problem, it is a global one and the global community should deal with it, not individual states.
We are not the sheriff, we are not the worlds conscience.
"Kerry said it can't be done, that is a plan? Russia made it happen, that is a plan".

Then why is the plan the one Kerry suggested?

More "sources"?

There was only ONE press conference where Kerry made the suggestion.

You want to me to find more "opinion" from talking heads or op-ed articles that mangles what Kerry ACTUALLY said.

Not my "opinion" what the man SAID.

NOT what Rannity or Limbaughtomy THINKS he said.

Not one non-american expert in the entirety of the world says that America brought down the soviet union they did that all by themselves.

The economy? really? That is delusional I'll tell you what, little challenge here for you, look at the time when the energy crisis of the 70s ended in 1980 and look at the economic record from that point forward.

You will find your answers to both that fraud of a president's so called economics and keeping oil prices low... pfft, Reagan was just an actor in all aspects of his life leading up to his role of a life time, playing the role of a great leader.

HE didn't bring down ANYTHING,all he did was instill fear into the American mindset for his massive buildup of the military.

Erich Honecker, East Germany's head of state, had to resign on October 18, 1989.

The new governement prepared a new law to lift the travel restrictions for East German citizen.

At 06.53 pm on November 9, 1989 a member of the new East German government was asked at a press conference when the new East German travel law comes into force.

He answered: "Well, as far as I can see,... straightaway, immediately."

Thousands of East Berliners went to the border crossings. At Bornholmer Strasse the people demanded to open the border and at 10.30 pm the border was opened there.

In that night the deadly border was opened by East Germans peacefully.

Obama OKs Chemical Weapons Aid to Syria

By Devin Dwyer
@devindwyer

@jonkarl
Sep 16, 2013 5:23pm
WASHINGTON — President Obama has formally authorized American shipments to Syria of non-lethal equipment and supplies specifically aimed at countering the threat of Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons as the world waits for them to be neutralized.
In a signed order, Obama today waived prohibitions of such shipments by the Arms Export Control Act, determining that the assistance is “essential to the national security interests of the United States.”
The materials — including chemical weapons-related personal protective gear and medical supplies — will be sent to “vetted” members of the Syrian opposition, international aid groups inside Syria, and any other organizations working to “prevent the preparation, use, or proliferation of Syria’s chemical weapons,” an administration official said.
Among the groups expected to receive the aid is the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the group expected to lead any monitoring and enforcement effort under the deal to transfer stockpiles under international control.
An administration official said the authorization has been in the works since before the massive Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack. This aid is separate from the lethal and other assistance the U.S. has been shipping to Syria.

+=========

Chemical weapons at Syria pose no threat to the security of the people of the planet, as they are not like nuclear reactor leaks or explosion.

Chemical weapons by large have not been known being exercised in the region, except US weaponry and drones which killed too many innocent people already.

Assad says he did not use chemical weapons,as they give lies, for which whoever used sarin gas if any , was not Assad then.

US weapons and aggression prove to be serious threats to world safety, whereby US weapons have been proven exercised over the degree being too much.

Muslim rebels pose as serious threat to the security of Syria and Middle East and global cultures by using too much violence, where US supports the rebels and threats.

The Russian-US proposal in attempt to check into Syria to dismantle chemical weapons is impossible, and is a violation of sovereignty of Syria, of which it imposes serous threats to the stability of Syria and the ME region, as in this situation Putin is trying to do favor for Muslim rebels for doing further unwanted violences when chemical weapons of Syria were to be looked into.

Obama is more than a sinner as a radical fundamentalist BEING THE Failure in everything he does--in Libya where embassy and such alike buildings were bombed recently by terror rebels, in the constant chaos and volatile turbulence in Egypt time after time upon letting go of Mubarack, and in the doing the extremism to Syria now.

Obama is the robotic molded enactment of Bush, by doing abuse of civil rights and freedom privacy of supporters, by carrying the Patriot Act and flying 800 drones in snooping and spying Of the US public, more than Bush did.
The drama of appalling silliness is the expertise of Obama going after Bush's hopeless done-deal drama horror again in the same old thing in pursuit of recycling Bush's terrified drama of looking for the destroying chemical weapons (yet Bush found nothing but devised the fake chemical weapons drama in Iraq), in Syria right now.

One never knows if it is true or not that they really have chemical weapons In Syria.
Yet, they only keep playing the uncertainty drama of chemical weapons cycle again and again.
As Obama might have done too many drones, that is nothing unusual to strike and bomb as he says to find out nothing instead as if something is there in Syria. However, Syria and Iran are ready to battle US strike, to make US drama terror of itself.
NO wonder the Russians say US is full of exceptionalism by doing its terrified drama emptiness all the time.

Syria is somewhat like Vietnam, as Muslim rebels want war only (they don't want to participate in a peace plan of talks and negotiations to see if they can have their say), but not peace, that a war has to be fought out to determine the outcome.
There are two sides, as Syria might label REBELS AS OUTLAWS AND COMBATANTS.

Rebels are mostly Muslims from everywhere, from Chechen, ME and North Africa, grouped with inside mostly Muslims in Syria for violences in this battle.

Chemical weapons issue is a side-track of Obama by pointing to the unproven 8/21 incident with no clear and concrete proof to call strike of Syria.

It is wrong that Obama thinks that is another Libya or Egypt to support rebels. Putin is also wrong to call a peace plan because rebels are also from Chechen, and they just want war all the way.

They have to make certain that rebels can first agree to talks first as pre-requite and fundamental requirements from US and Russia, otherwise, it is useless to call Syria to not fight rebels or not.

As Syria already signed the chemical weapons treaty, it is not possible for US to say about Syria, since they would not use sarin gas.

But, if US wants to strike and use ground troops find out, Syria might not have any, or already destroyed them, or had already shipped away, US will end up finding nothing. So, the question if Syria really a has any chemical weapons will never be known, like Iraq.

The choice is between Syria and rebels.
But, Obama is doing his empty drama horror by calling on chemical weapons terror.

Lincoln, a great Republican, freed the slaves.

Kennedy almost started WW3 a few times.

Clinton never balanced a budget. Gingrich prevented him from bankrupting the country.

barock replaced Buchanan as our nation's worst President, and carter as the worst of the century.

The effort to get bin laden started with Bush. The enhanced interrogation techniques were stopped under the 0rganizer. barock also stopped apprehension and interrogation and switched to drone vaporization of the target and his whole family (like hitler).

barock also left the Paki doctor who found bin laden to get actual torture, not just a wet rag over his face. This is why we call you surrendercrats. Dr. Shakil Afridi described being routinely tortured by ISI interrogators with cigarette burns and electric shocks while at Apbara. Family members and a member of his legal counsel claimed Dr. Afridi had been tortured while in Pakistani custody during November 2012.

If we give them amnesty that wouldn't matter would it, genius?

Sealing the border with barbed wire and minefields will also keep the drug runners and terrorists out too.
