    President Obama is not doing any thing different then President Reagan did, President Reagan had the advantage of being able to cut high tax rates for the wealthy and they put that money to use in manufacturing weapons. The only thing screwing this country up is a party more intent on bringing President Obama down then they are on stopping our economical down slide

    There is a conspiracy theory thread that this thought of yours would be better deposited.

    I never thought that President Reagan was involved in a conspiracy

    This is a falsehood. I don't believe that Reagan decreased the size of government. As for the rest of your gibberish, I will leave it as just gibberish. The fact still remains that the deficits and the debt growth during Reagan's Administration would not have been as great if the Democrats had not lied about what they would do with regards to spending cuts. They double-downed on that with the George H.W. Bush when they lied about cutting $3 for every $1 in tax increases. They only did 27 cents.

    That is part of the reason why the GOP will not go for tax increases this time, because they know that they can trust a Democrat to be a Democrat.... and just lie.

    He's probably slightly more competent than Bush, even though he does most of the same things. I don't think just Obama is going to make this country worse. He's gonna get a good dose of help from Congress, including the Republicans.

    Was the Savings and Loan scandal on his watch or the first Bush? It was around that time.

    It was the Bush 41 and it also involved members of the Bush family.
