    How did they manage to bring Reagan into this?

    Probably in the same way you managed to bring FDR into it.

    Well I think that all depends on the extent of the disagreement. A disagreement on healthcare absolutly not. Now if a president were pushing for lets say slavery then I could see it being a viable possibility.

    That being said -- the way some people try to deflect or derail a discussion by digging up something the other extreme once did -- pretty lame Harshaw. Pretty lame.

    Partisan hack douchebaggery of the highest order.

    Deal with the issue in OP or don't post.
    Well, Mr. Objectivity, perhaps you could enlighten us as to the "issue" contained within the OP? I couldn't find one.

    Yep, they sure are a real class act. I imagine the (R)epugnants will squirm out of this.
    The democrats did the same thing under Bush. And that wasn't ok either. I dont support Repulicans holding signs like that or Democrats. But this is not an example of the average Republican...there are crazies on both sides.

    What irks me about posts like this is the fact that they try to stereotype an entire group of people based on the action of one. People are individuals. We all think in different ways. To assume that all individuals in a group (aka Republicans/Democrats) all agree on everything that other members do it illogical.

    And yet Reagan increased the size of the government and pushed massive deficits.
    Reagan spent more money on the military. He did this because we were in the middle of the Cold War. I think that is completely justifiable. Had Reagan spent so much on the military during a time of peace I would be against that, but under the given circumstances he did what was necessary.

    Yes on both. Reagan also passed the socialist "earned income tax credit" which redistributed wealth and gave amnesty to illegals. Increased the size of the military to which his successor started making cuts. Outspending the russians accomplished what exactly? We knew as far back as the Ford administration that the soviets were collapsing under their own weight.

    The cold war ended with the fall of the russians in 1991. Reagan wasn't president then. I guess we should thank Bush Sr.

    Once again we knew back as far as the Ford Administration that Russia was falling apart under their own weight. It was Rummy and Cheney's fearmongering and their marginalizing of the Ford Admnistration that kept things going. They convinced Ford's people the russians had secret weapons through their counter-intelligence group Team B which ran counter-intelligence against the CIA
