    The fact is that Reagan was able to turn the economy around, just as Bush did and just as Romney did, both with the debt in Michigan and the Olympic Games. Obama has done none of this. Instead the debt is increasing at record levels, unemployment has increased and his promises of improvement have proved as baseless and futile as any of his other promises.

    The man is a dud, Release him from his responsibilities to allow him the time to write more autobiographies.
    Perhaps you forgot, but we experienced "record levels" of debt while Reagan and Bush were president. And Romney happened to be governor at the height of the real estate bubble when the whole country was doing well from it. His own state is voting against him now. That tells you what a crappy leader he was.

    Even if that were truthful, he is still going to beat Obama like a drum.....Just my prediction.

    When do you predict he will be ahead of Obama in the state-by-state polling?

    Obama: 221
    Romney: 170
    tossups: 147

    Reagan turned the economy around and was reelected in 49 of 50 states, in case you forgot.

    Do you think Obama will get 49 out of 50?

    I think that there is still a little fence sitting going on out there by largely independents, but if I had to nail it down, I'd say after the convention, when the VP pick is known, the ticket will solidify, and you'll see the mood for Obama dwindle. Especially if the current track of the country continues.

    I don;t recall Regan being $16 trillion in debt and with nothing on the horizon but more debt. Reagan gave the American people hope, and their hopes were obviously justified.

    In contrast Obama offers hopelessness, blaming everyone else for this ballsup, or looking back in history, like you're doing here, in the hope that you can find a worse situation than where Obama has taken the country.

    But Obam,a is no Ronald Reagan, and in fact he is no leader. He is a petty leftist school teacher who somehow hit the political jackpot.

    Now you're comparing 1980's dollars with 2012 dollars. Reagan tripled the debt and posted "record level" debt every year he was president.

    That's complete and utter partisan BS. And while the number is still low, roughly 44% approve of his handling of the economy.

    He's leading just fine and again, in polls, though the most recent I saw was from February, most found him to be a strong leader.

    It was still nowhere near $16 trillion dollars and there was obviously an end in sight. There is no such end in this presidency because, as everyone can see, Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan. Reagan led America to prosperity. Do you seriously believe Obama can do the same???

    That's complete and utter partisan BS. And while the number is still low, roughly 44% approve of his handling of the economy.
    No, it's absolutely true. Do you really need be reminded that Obama has blamed the Europeans, the tsunami in Japan, China, the Middle East, Bush, the Arab spring, energy costs. etc. for his problems? This guy seems to think that the world is constant, that things will always remain the same and he can make noises and apportion blame from Beverly Hills, Martha's Vineyard and the golf course.

    He's leading just fine and again, in polls, though the most recent I saw was from February, most found him to be a strong leader.
    Again, things change. The electorate will be looking at this guy more closely and his dismal record. He has had no success anywhere.
