    his spending was based on the fact that the dems loaded up any defense spending bill with tons of socialist pork

    How did Clinton "stop the spending"?

    Was President Reagan one of the worse, IMO, no. Was he one of the bests, IMO, no.
    "Just say no" was a childish way to get serious about a serious problem, drugs and addiction. Personal responsibilty be damned...drug addiction is bigger than "just say no".

    LBJ's war on poverty, as well as his signing of the civil rights act is something that we can be proud of. Reagan didn't do one thing that I can look back upon and be proud of. The USSR went bankrupt, Reagan didn't one thing that made it's downfall become a reality.

    Carter was a tool and still is a tool. I've not got anthing good to say about the peanut farmer except that he should have stayed in Georgia farming peanuts for a living. He was a populist "wet dream" as it were.

    People who get upset about the initiatives of the first lady are pathetic. They reinforce common sense. Saying no to drugs, learning to read, and eating right and getting exercise are all good things. The radical left and right are so silly.

    In a 62 year time span he's probably the best Republican since Eisenhower, but over all he was just a so so moderate Republican who ultimately led us down the path of de-regulation and widened the gap between rich and poor. I voted he was so so.

    Ronald Reagan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    probably would be beneficial for people to fully read the wikipedia page on reagan and read a whole overview of his presidency,rather than picking one thing from his presidency and labeling him good or bad without seeing the whole picture.
