    Would you like to share why you feel this way? Or would you rather bash the "devout Muslim" which: fore one there is nothing wrong with and secondly he is Christian; on things that are complete partisan rhetoric?

    Reagan looked good, had a nice smile, nice hair, etc; but, on the inside, he was nothing. He himself is analagois to his presidency. It looks good. Hell, it looks great. But when you really look at it, it was empty. It had no real value. The only thing good that came out of his presidency was that the USSR was no longer a threat. Even on that, the power behind his role is questionable.

    You can't tell me Obama doesn't have an accomplishment. The economy is turning around, we are out of Iraq, and most importantly we killed Osama. That's 3 right there.

    The fact that Reagan still ruffles immature lefties feathers even today is a sure sign of greatness.

    Reagan really wasn't President for long, his "advsors" took over most of his duties in his second term. Alzheimer's took his mind alot earlier than revealed. He was the only one in his Administration who honestly didn't know about Iran Contra. His secret deal with the Iranians to trade weapons for hostages was the most telling moment about his pre-alzheimers character, he really had none...he was just acting.

    Gallup : Reagan Greatest President Ever.
    Rep. 38%
    Ind. 19%

    And here's the kicker, Reagan not in top
    5 for Dem, but Obama in 3rd with (drum roll) 11% :

    Americans Say Reagan Is the Greatest U.S. President

    This of course explains a lot of the lameness we've seen on this thread!

    No. No. No. No. No. No.

    Reagan was the start to the spending problem. Cut social spending, throwing thousands of people out on the streets. Lowered taxes, created debt so bad that he had to raise them later. Reaganomics. Cut school funding. Oh yea ketchup is a veggie right? Reagan’s streamlining of the income tax created the largest-ever shift of tax burden from the wealthy to the middle-class and working poor, resulting in expanding the income gap. Trading arms, money, and drugs with the Nicaraguan rebels. Chemical weapons to Saddam. "Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do". More appointed officials were indicted and convicted of crimes under Reagan than than any other president. Firing the air controllers and not even giving the union a chance to explain their grievances. Deregulation of the Department of transportation. Give tax breaks to Companies that got rid of health benefits and Pensions and opting in his 401k plan. Invaded Grenada... Do we need to go on?

    the economy cannot get any worse, you didn't kill Osama, I didn't kill Osama and Obama sure didn't kill Osama. Some SEAL killed Osama. and we will see what happens in Iraq
