    Wow. I didn't know the college was so liberal. I was actually considering going there but I don't think I could handle far left people every day...

    depends what department you are in and most college kids are too busy trying to make grades, pay for school or get laid

    The folks I know personally who teach there are very liberal. This doesn't imply that all of them are. It's just my personal experience, and I was also making fun of Obama and having a little laugh.
    If I could go to school there, I'd definitely go for it.

George Bush 41 would've been a much wiser choice as his foreign policy was effectie and non-binding.
    Your post is partisan cherry-picking, if you ask me. Essentially, you say all the good stuff would have happened regardless who was President at that time, and all the bad stuff after his term in office was his fault.

    That was never a part of my post. I don't believe Carter would have handled the situation any better. I actuallypointed out that Papa Bush would have been better. Last time I checked he was republican. You assumed that because I don't like Reagan that I'm partisan.

    How dare anyone, ANYONE mock Ronald Regan. He was a fantastic president who believed in limited government, sound money, and peace. He was a man of action, not words. The Drug War is nothing but admirabe, jailing hundreds of thousands of non-violent drug crimes. Bravo, I see no better punishment then locking them in a cage with rapists, murderers, and thieves.

    Lets not forget how he cut spending. It was a sight alright, gorgeous. Like the tits of Rosie O'Donnell. He viciously cut spending, especially for corporations because, after all...they are people. Granted, he did borrow a lot of money and raise the debt like nothing before. Who cares? Let future generations solve it! The American way embraces procrastination. Push problems until later. Not like Reagan would have trouble forgetting about his problems or anything..

    And his oh, so beautiful foreign policy. Gorgeous. Propping up dictators in the name of freedom. And guess what? Didnt have to deal with those problems until 1990s and 2000's. Flawless.

    Not to mention he single-handedly beat the Russians in the Cold War. He ripped his shirt off, flew to the USSR on the back on a bald eagle, shoved an American flag up Gorbachev's butt and proclaimed this land for God, Abe Lincoln and Ronald McDonald.
