    Reagan did not have an opposition party that moved in lock step to oppose virtually everything he tried to do.

    Reagan didn't have a Democrat like, Republican Mitch McConnell, who said it's his number one goal in Congress is to defeat Obama.

    How old were you during the Reagan term? No opposition party? Tip, Reagan Budgets are DOA, O'Neil wasn't an opposition party? You are showing how little you know about the 80's yet profess to be an expert. That doesn't help your credibility.

    When I'm wrong, I admit it. I'm not wrong. Look, you can repeat Obama's JAR is 39% another 1,000 times, but doing so will not make it true and Gallup will prove you are lying every time ...

    You are exactly right, fully justifies the 2011 economic results over two years after the end of a recession. Do we have a net job gain two years after the end of a recession like Reagan had? Do we have strong economic growth two years after the end of a recession like Reagan had? Amazing how great the Obama record is and yet he has a 39%-43% JAR MOE. Guess the American people just don't understand like you do how lucky we are to have Obama in the WH.

    I think its is interesting that despite the low support for Obama, there is even less support for the GOP candidates.
    I did comment on this already. To reiterate, the GOP has low numbers because a large portion of the tea party is made up of conservatives (folks who would typically vote republican) who arenít going to cut the GOP any slack until they get serious about cutting spending, government regulations and deal with the debt.

    Just because the folks that sent republicans to Washington are ticked off about said republicans inability to find their spines and make the desired changes doesnít mean they are going to vote for a democrat or stay at home this election. These are people who regularly attend political rallies and are very active in attempting to affect changes in this country. To presume that they will simply sit out the election because they arenít happy with their representatives is to fail in understanding how fed up these people are with their elected representatives.

    If anything, this should be seen as a signal that moderate republicans & democrats are likely to be replaced by representatives who are much more fiscally conservative.

    You are right, I am a liar but then I am a Conservative what do you expect? Guess these economic results are indeed lies

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!
    Those are great re-election numbers and that Obama economic plan is place is absolutely so awesome that it is invisible to the American eye

    I was in my 20s in the 80s. Democrats controlled both houses of Congress for most of Reagan's presidency, but he was able to get through most of his agenda. If he had faced an opposition party like Obama is facing he would have accomplished absolutely nothing that he wanted to do. You simply can't deny that with a straight face.
