    I am 63 years old, which I believe is older than 56. I lived the period of time, I don't need to read a book telling me what I experienced. My facts consisted of my bank balance and my financial portfolio along with the threat Carter's economic policy had on my family. I wasn't smoking anything nor did I buy the arguments against Reagan then just like I don't buy them now.

    Nothing is ever going to satisfy some people including you but the attitude in this country changed, the pride that people had, the sense of personal financial gain never was higher than it was during that time and rightly so. People could take care of themselves again, personal income skyrocketed, interest rates dropped,and dependence on the govt. was lessened.

    There was a reason for the outpouring of love and respect for Reagan during his funeral. It looks to me like it was you smoking something instead of taking advantage of the opportunities presented. The majority in this country got it, some never will.
    The president does not set interest rates. I guess if you thought he did, I really can't debate you.
    I know alot of Reagan lovers like you that are in total denial of history. I guess some people need heros and will forgive flaws in order to have them. The problem is I accept history the way it is. You don't.

    Almost every politician gets outpouring of love and respect when they die. Reagan was no different. Hell, they even cried at Teddy's funeral and we all know what dooshbag he was.

    I did take advantage of the Reagan years and made a ton of money. That does not mean I think he was a great president.

    You can act like an adult and admit you were wrong, or you can continue to act like a child..... choice is yours.
    Yes, I've read an entire political history of Russia and any political historian will tell you that the fall of the USSR was by and large internal and independent of your ronald reagan's efforts internationally(which were atrocious)

    Not my fault you were living in your mother's basement during the 80s. Some of us had families to care for, and Reagan made everyone proud to be Americans again.

    Bush had to deal with Clinton's recession after he was elected. I guess that means you think Clinton's last four years "sucked?"

    No one said that the President sets interest rates but economic policy dictates how the Fed sets interest rates. You can deny that Reagan economic policy but to do so is totally ignores personal income, unemployment, home ownership, and strong economic growth thus job creation.

    Not sure what Reagan did to hurt you or your family but seems to me you are good at placing blame but poor at taking personal responsibility. People like you seem to need countries where there is a King to do everything for you. Reagan got the govt. out of the way and I did the rest.

    I had bought a home in the 80s and paid it off in 10 years. Nice try at a personal attack.
    Were you proud to be an American when he made deals with terrorists? Or when dozens of his boys were indicted? I wasn't.

    I never said Reagans last four years sucked. If you read my posts I said they were great, but they were temporary just like Clintons.

    Your unsupported opinion is worth exactly 0.

    Ronald Reagan experienced the same things that GW Bush and Sarah Palin are experiencing today. They all promote free enterprise, capitalism, and personal wealth creation thus have to be destroyed by the left who wants people dependent on their leadership and economic plan. The attacks on Reagan continue today including those by you and the attacks on GW Bush will continue for decades all misguided and totally unfounded.

    Still in denial. I guess I am done here.
    The fact is Reagans boom to the economy lasted four years and then we went into recession. That is a fact you can not deny. Reagan was not a saviour. Just an average president that some of you guys put on a pedestal.

    Funny how you give Reagan all the credit for a good economy yet blame congress for a bad economy.
    I find it best to look at things unbiased and nonpartisan. It really is the only way to know the truth. You remind me of the democrats that think Clinton was the greates president ever.

    Excuse me... you said his last two years sucked. Big difference.
