It isn't fair to compare Reagan with Obama. Obama wasn't raised to have any appreciation for America as such he isn't motivated by anyone's best interests but his Own.

April,26 1984

The US President, Ronald Reagan, has landed in China at the start of a six-day visit - the first by an American president since Nixon in 1972.

The White House spokesman, Larry Speakes, said the United States and China are expected to reach an agreement to assist US companies in helping develop commercial nuclear power in China.

Assisting U.S. companies?

Nuclear power?

"Japan is part of the problem. This is where government can be legitimately in­volved. That is, to convince the Japanese in one way or another that, in their own interests, that deluge of cars must be slowed while our industry gets back on its feet..."

When he imposed a 100% tariff on selected Japanese elec­tronic products for allegedly "dumping" computer memory chips, he said he did it "to enforce the principles of free and fair trade." And Treasury Secretary James A. Baker has boasted about the protectionist record: Reagan "has granted more import relief to U.S. industry than any of his prede­cessors in more than half a century."

The flood of foriegn cars was beginning to take it's toll on American car manufacturers.

Ronnie made them "play nice!" That's why 22 million jobs were created during his terms.

The tariffs caused Japan and Germany to build plant's here in America, adding American jobs, doofus. They're truck plant is in San Antonio...

You don't know anything except "vote for the person who will leagalize drugs..LMAO

Ron Paul in 2012 was your boy and now shillary. Hilarious.

Except for Iran.

Why don't teabaggers want to help Iran with their nuclear power plant?

Instead they want to invade.

Ronnie's "lead"?

NAFTA was Ronnie's idea.

The trade agreement with Panama, Korea and Columbia?

Bush's.

Trade agreements "Leading" America straight into the ground.

Poor teabagger.
