    Yes, if you could ever pull your head out of your partisan nether regions, you would see that I wasn't criticizing Reagan. He and Volcker did the right thing when the put the economy in recession. Obama faced an even worse, and very different sort of economy, and he has also taken the right course.

    I accept your surrender as I am sure you opened the link and saw interest rates at 20% before Reagan took office so that begs the question how did Reagan get Volcker to implement a tighter money policy before he was even elected to Federal Office?

    He(Reagan) had nothing to do with economic or monetary policy in 1980 so whose head is really in their ass. Obama has taken the right course? LOL

    Did he have something to do with monetary policy in 1981-83? Did he in any way pressure Volcker to alter his course from 1980? No, he didn't. He supported him and then reappointed him when he had the chance. Pull your head out.

    C'mon, Con, you made a bet, now let's agree to the terms.

    When do you stop lying, Con? I showed you the latest poll on the subject and Carter isn't the worst called the worst president in modern history, Nixon is. Even Bush was worse than Carter.



    You've been shown this, so for you to continue to maintain otherwise cannot be considered a mistake on your part. It's a dreadful combination of wishful thinking and you lying once again.

    That's been asked and answered 100 times, Con. You can search for my answer if you really want to know.

    Now you're arguing a strawman, Con. 5 yard penalty.

    I never said Reagan got volker to implement that policy.

    Now then, what are the terms of the bet you made with me? I propose the loser of the bet can't post anywhere on debatepolitics.com. Ok?

    Read the chart and tell me what interest rates did in 1981-83, they came down, the monetary policy was implemented in late 70's and carried through the election. Reagan leadership put more money into the hands of the taxpayers and that led to an economic boom which forced interest rates down. Too bad you weren't old enough to have experienced the period of time

    You have to make up your mind which I know is hard for a wage slave to do but Reagan inherited an economy with a high misery index indicating high inflation and rising unemployment. Volcker implemented the tight monetary policy in the late 70's that carried through into 1981. Reagan's economic policies were implemented in August 1981 and started benefiting the economy in fiscal year 1982. Too bad you weren't old enough then to understand what Reagan did and the fact that Reagan didn't do anything to force Volcker to put the economy into recession as it was already headed there. Reagan tax cuts brought us out of it rapidly as the results show. Obama can only dream about Reagan leadership but is to arrogant to emulate it.

    You might also check out the most recent survey among presidential scholars. You will not that Obama ranks above Reagan and WAY above Bush.

    I have searched and searched and found no evidence that Reagan was in the office anytime during he 1980's when interest rates rose to over 20%. Your loyalty to Obama policies is going to be your downfall. You can accept that prediction or do what you always do, ignore it.
