    Bush couldn't help the fact Libs are so sickeningly shallow they would send troops to war and then stick a bayonet in their backs when they needed their support the most.

    What type of leadership uses a war vote for political gain?
    Then turns on them for political gain?
    The Democrat scum.

    Well according to the standard definition of mainstream media derived from mass media msm would encompass the large papers, the networks, and cable news stations. Its media designed to reach a large population. According to yoour link yesterday from tvbythenumbers Fox reaches only 2 million homes less than CNN. Thats around 98 million homes.

Reagan today is still revered by the majority in this country. bea.gov and bls.gov paint a different picture than you as does real experience at the time.
    Not a textbook Im going by government numbers. The gini index which economists use to determine income inequality. The fact is the rich got richer during reagan, a lot more than previous generations. The other classes fluctuated. No not an upturn of middle class to upper class but middle class to lower. It was reagan's voodoo economics which most likely killed Bush Srs reelection chances.

    You love saying bls and bea but you never show what they actually say lets see some hard data.

    Again with the rhetoric. The previous president was full of rhetoric and you blindly supported him. I dont support many things Obama has done but if you want to lie im going to correct it. People are flocking so much that CNN still has more cume viewers.

    That is your opinion, mine is that Bush's "read my lips" sunk his re-election efforts.


    You love saying bls and bea but you never show what they actually say lets see some hard data.
    BLS.gov is the Bureau of Labor Statistics showing job creation and unemployment

    BEA.gov if the Bureau of Economic Analysis that shows Economic growth

    Both are non partisan regardless of who is in the WH. Try doing some research for a change.


    Again with the rhetoric. The previous president was full of rhetoric and you blindly supported him. I dont support many things Obama has done but if you want to lie im going to correct it. People are flocking so much that CNN still has more cume viewers
    The Previous President always talked about the greatness of this country and spoke in positive terms. The previous President also had results that you and others distort, thus BEA.gov and BLS.gov. See my Avitar for what the military thought of our previous President

    Unlike you results trump rhetoric and unlike you I understand the role of Congress in making economic policy and generating results.

    Reagan's WHAT? Yeah, Reagan's "Reaganomics" sure did last past his presidency. Another presidency we could have done without. I believe over 135 people on his administration were either convicted, investigated or fired for illegal activities.

    ... Ronald Reagan, president of the United States from 1981-1989, had a fiscal plan that significantly involved the use of the national debt. Reagan's economic plan, which is most often called Reaganomics, was tested, and in effect, throughout his two terms in office during the 1980s. At the time the economic plan was being used many felt that it was generating great affluence across the nation. However, the effects of Reaganomics, namely the national debt, are what prove its ineffectiveness. Reaganomics has caused much more harm to the present day economy than it did to that of the 1980s economy. Moreover, few goals of Reaganomics were accomplished. The purpose of this paper is to prove that Reaganomics was an ineffective economic plan for the country. In order to understand how Reaganomics led to such severe economic issues, one must first understand the basic premise of Reaganomics, also called supply-side economics.

    The overall assumption of Reaganomics was that taxes could be cut-even if slashing the government's income sent the budget deeply into deficit-because the tax cuts would stimulate so much economic growth that they would pay for themselves and bring the debt back down.

    This, unfortunately, did not happen. Moreover, many of these tax cuts were to be given to the wealthy, and most often to corporations. This was done under the basis that if the corporations had more money, from paying less to the government in taxes, they would eventually "trickle down" some of this excess capital to those under them. Once again, this is not what transpired.

    Aside from all Reagan's scandals (dealing with Iran twice, going behind Congress's back breaking laws and almost getting impeached, and sending Bush Sr. to Iran to hold their American hostages for another month until he was in office!) he was the only president to NOT raise the minimum wage.

    Yeah, his actions did indeed have long lasting effects. None of them good.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    The fact that Reagan drives you crazy is another reason to support him. Your posts are nothing more than revisionist history taken from some leftwing website and thus are irrelevant today. You continue to run from the tough questions and debate only to show up to troll again.

    Reagan was brought up on this thread but has nothing to do with the title of this thread. Keep diverting from the shift in this country and the buyer's remose in voting for Obama, 46% got it right and people are turned off by the lies, distortions, and cheerleading from the majority in the media today thus are turning to Fox News for actual reporting of what is going on in D.C. That is a reality that you and others simply do not understand and thus that is a reality that will change the political landscape in November.

    Yeah, that is why Bush Sr was voted out even after being the hero of Desert Storm. The economy tanked right after Reagan left office. Look it up.
    All Reagan did was get us in debt.

    Coming at around the same time as the budget deal, America entered into a mild recession, lasting for six months.[11] Many government programs, such as welfare, increased.[11] As the unemployment rate edged upward in 1991, Bush signed a bill providing additional benefits for unemployed workers.[12] 1991 was marked by many corporate reorganizations, which laid off a substantial number of workers. Many now unemployed were Republicans and independents, who had believed that their jobs were secure.

    By his second year in office, Bush was told by his economic advisors to stop dealing with the economy, as they believed that he had done everything necessary to ensure his reelection.[11] By 1992, interest and inflation rates were the lowest in years, but by midyear the unemployment rate reached 7.8 percent, the highest since 1984.[12] In September 1992, the Census Bureau reported that 14.2 percent of all Americans lived in poverty.[12] At a press conference in 1990, Bush told reporters that he found foreign policy more enjoyable

    If Reagan had nothing to do with this thread, why did you insist on inserting his fictional impact here? You mentioned him, in your own inimitable revisionist way. I simply corrected you. You remind me of the little kid who always accuses his friends of cheating because that is how "he" always plays. Your transparent accusations of people rewriting history simply illustrates your guilt of doing the same quite clearly.

    After the crimes you and your ilk supported, and still do, during the Bush years it is amusing you have the nerve to attack Obama... on anything.

    I, and the majority of America, do not have buyer's remorse. We are more and more thankful everyday that we have a man in the white house who respects our laws and is not out to make him and his friends rich off the backs of the American people. We've had enough of Republicans, mostly Authoritarian Conservatives, using our country for their own selfish desires.

    Dirty Harry;1058487705]Yeah, that is why Bush Sr was voted out even after being the hero of Desert Storm. The economy tanked right after Reagan left office. Look it up.
    All Reagan did was get us in debt.
    Look it up? I lived it. Never in my entire business career did I do better than during the Reagan years. I actually lived it and worked it, did you?

    The country had debt before Reagan and has debt every year since. The difference is during the Reagan years and the GW Bush years the American people got to keep more of that they earned thus having less dependence on the govt. and that drives liberals crazy.
    The economy tanked as you call it because of the increase in taxes and the massive spending on the part of the govt. as a result of increased revenue from the Reagan tax cuts. GHWB raised taxes and that got him thrown out of office giving us Clinton who raised taxes and that gave us the Republican revolution of 1994

    Coming at around the same time as the budget deal, America entered into a mild recession, lasting for six months.[11] Many government programs, such as welfare, increased.[11] As the unemployment rate edged upward in 1991, Bush signed a bill providing additional benefits for unemployed workers.[12] 1991 was marked by many corporate reorganizations, which laid off a substantial number of workers. Many now unemployed were Republicans and independents, who had believed that their jobs were secure.
    And yet GHWB was thrown out of office. How can that be? You seem to forget Reagan wasn't in office in 1991

    By his second year in office, Bush was told by his economic advisors to stop dealing with the economy, as they believed that he had done everything necessary to ensure his reelection.[11] By 1992, interest and inflation rates were the lowest in years, but by midyear the unemployment rate reached 7.8 percent, the highest since 1984.[12] In September 1992, the Census Bureau reported that 14.2 percent of all Americans lived in poverty.[12] At a press conference in 1990, Bush told reporters that he found foreign policy more enjoyable
    Oh, how I long for those GHWB days. Unemployment today over 10%. National Debt about 13 trillion dollars and rising. Real unemployment over 17% and we have a President trying to make everyone dependent on the U.S. Govt.

    Now what does any of this have to do with the thread topic? Keep diverting

    LOL - cheerleading? I think not - I am not a Palin supporter. I know how people fear the unknown, so I thought to point out where she is coming from to some of you who obviously fear her.

    I would have preferred Romney, but the Republicans with the clout, the Flimsy Grahams and the Ho Liebermans, backed McCain.

    McCain lost, not Palin - so don't be so quick patting yourself on the back over Obama somehow beating Palin - he beat McCain not Palin. And Palin actually beat Biden in their debate - boy, he looked not only dopey, he looked evil - his eyes were ridiculous looking, while frothing at the mouth the whole time.

    McCain sucks, even to his own party. Geez, even his own mother said people may have to hold their noses if they vote for him, so Obama's beating him is nothing special whatsoever - even Reid knew a lightskinned negro who spoke without a negro dialect could win.

    But, Al Bore lost to George Bush - Yawn Kerry lost to George Bush - and if the law allowed, Bush would have beat anything the loons put up against him again.

    The loons are still so sour about losing to Bush twice they can't control their whining - Bush has been out of office for over a year now, and Palin isn't running for anything, yet they are still sourgraping like the sourgrapes they are.

    I am loving it.

    It is sooooooooooooooooooo funny to watch the sourgrape obsession over Plain as she rakes in the bucks with a smile on her face.

    Fictional impact? You continue to show that you are incapable of doing actual research from verifiable non partisan sites. You claim you corrected the record?

    As for the American people not having buyers' remorse, what are the Obama ratings today? He won with 52% of the vote so what are those today?

    It really is too bad that there are so many still drinking the Kool-Aid and having a distorted position on the economic foundation upon which this country was built.

    Too many are out of touch with reality looking for utopia and believing that by throwing more money at the problem you can solve the problem. When you allow the people and private industry to keep more of their money that indeed does happen.

    For someone who complains about the Regan Debt you sure are ignoring the Obama debt. He contributed to the 1.47 trillion 2009 debt and in the first two months of fiscal year 2010 he has added almost 300 billion more. That is putting Reagan, GHW Bush, and GW Bush spending on steroids yet you don't have buyer's remorse?
