    Depends on the criteria. I would say sure he was a good President.

    He was a better than average soap salesman on TV.

    Re: Was Reagan a good president?

    He was one of our worst presidents. He was a coward and left Lebanon after the bombing which paved the way for OBL to do his thing. His voodoo economics made our economy a shambles. He was a union buster, i.e.,the air traffic controllers. He deregulated in such a way as to help bring about all of our current economic problems, his lack of understanding of AIDS and drug addiction paved the way for ignorance about both of those topics. His wife was a ninny and ;his kids were without merit.

    He was one of the worst presidents in history, along with Hoover, Bush and the rest of the republican cabal of numnutz.

    He projected strength which is good. He compromised on issues at times which is good.

    He ran up large deficits which is bad. Iran contra bad perhaps neutral.

    I vote good on the whole.

    It was his best ever role, and his best paid acting job.

    He was a good President.

    Worthy of idolization/canonization? No. No President is. Not Clinton, not Reagan, not FDR, not even Washington.

    Reagan was a cowardly President and a complete fool.

    Why do some republicans like cowardly Hollywood actors that have sound byte 'jokes"?

    His role before POTUS leading the Disney parade and being a charming old fool was perfect for him.
