Ronald Reagan was a disgrace; the right-wingers went into overdrive to try and rehabilitate his legacy and rewrite history in order to create this icon for the right to look up to going forward, especially after Nixon… they couldn’t have two presidential disgraces to look back on. But anyone can check the facts and see the disasters of Ronald Reagan:
Iran-CONTRA,
Air traffic Controllers,
Bad economy,
Allowing the S&L crisis to spin out of control,
Reagan was a serial tax raiser,
Reagan nearly tripled the federal budget deficit,
Unemployment soared after Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts,
Reagan grew the size of the federal government tremendously,
(Did I mention) Reagan illegally funneled weapons to Iran,
Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden,
Reagan vetoed a comprehensive anti-Apartheid act.

Like I said, Ronald Reagan was a total disgrace.

Reagan's legacy sure beats Obama's crapfest. We all had money when Reagan was around. Now everyone is broke.
And we were all happy when Reagan was around. Now we are all sad and pissed off.
Look at you, for instance.

Obama still feeds only his mooches and his Wall Street buds that gave him over forty two million dollars.

When President Reagan was President it was morning in America. Everyone who wanted a job had one, and people were able to buy houses, and cars, and feed their children without Government handouts. The Democrats want all of us on the public dole so they can control people. We are all sentenced to another 963 days of Democrat imprisonment, forced to watch Presidential lawlessness in our name. But that will be the end of the Democrat party, and the Republicans too if they are allowed to ignore our immigration laws.

You are,100% correct. President Reagan was the perfect example of pro American leadership,under him we had a healthy economy,a strong military and real American values. I don't give a damn what his anti American scumbag critics say. Thank-you President Reagan for a decade of prosperity,and a strong America.

Reagan amnestied 3,000,000 illegals.

Tripled the federal deficit.

Negotiated with terrorists
by selling military supplies to a declared enemy (Iran) and use those profits to prosecute an illegal war ( Nicaragua ),

Got 241 Americans killed at Beirut.

Pulled off a publicity stunt in Grenada that got
17 Americans killed, all from friendly fire.

Under Reagan, the US went from being the world’s largest creditor to being the largest debtor nation.

Under Reagan, we had our first American president honor Nazi war dead at Bitteburg , Germany .

Under Reagan, school lunch programs were severely cut back or eliminated. Ketchup was declared to be a vegetable in order to satisfy nutritional requirements.

Under Reagan, pre-natal medical and nutritional programs for low-income and working mothers were ended. Children died as a result; so did some mothers before they could give birth.

Under Reagan, more high-level government officials were indicted than in any administration in history.

Great record.

Tear down that myth!

If Ronald Reagan had any claim to greatness, credit must be given to his wife's astrologer. Instead of going through the usual channels of logic, reason, and compassion, good old Ronald based his decisions on the alignment of the stars and planets. Yep, Reagan was a great leader, unless you think astrology is based on totally useless ignorance.

Leave us not forget Nixon's favorite lunch choice - cottage cheese with ketchup. Who knew that Tricky Dick and Rockhead Ronnie were such gourmets?

The number of the Beast is 666.
Ronald-6
Wilson-6
Reagan-6

When President and Mrs. Reagan moved out to California, their house number was, you guessed it, 666. Soon changed to 668.

Hmmmmmm?

Strange coincidences.
Spooky.
