    It is ridiculous to credit any President for ending the cold war. The end came from within and Levi Jeans and Charmin have more to do with it than Star wars.

    Sure and Henry Ford didn't build the model A because he had a whole factory of guys. Torture your logic as much as you wish. Water board it for all I care.

    if reagan gets credit for ending it (via his proxy war funding of the mujahadeen), he also gets blamed for making OBL viable.


    sure you want to put him down for that?

    Reagan was Reagan. He was indeed something special... not perfect (his presidency had several serious faults) but the right man at the right time.


    If you didn't live through the Carter years, or you weren't old enough to understand what a bleak time they were and how hope for the future was dying like drought-withered grass, then you'll never understand what Reagan was or why so many people loved him so.



    Perfect? No. Greatest Prez of all time? Probably not. The man we needed in the moment we needed him? Hell yes.

    Sure,times change. Reagan didn't make OBL, he gave them weapons to fight the Russians. Foreign policy after Reagan is what pissed OBL off, that and the cozy relationship past administrations had with the Saud family. The thing that created OBL was the religion peace in the final analysis.

    There are several studies showing that defense spending is not an efficient way to generate jobs. Find evidence to dispute that

    we have to consider how much more development could have happened if the funds were spent on something productive.

    8/10 govt. AND private sector workers today owe their incomes to the defense spending of Ronald Reagan. The defense tech that is now in use in IT is tech that was developed through such spending. Many private companies today owe their existence to defense contracts from the Reagan era. The defense sector is actually a highly productive, if not the most productive and beneficial sector for the US economy both directly and indirectly.


    Anti-war types and Liberals simply don't like this reality so they try to paint it as somehow invalid.



    The average person though doesn't understand the hard bolts of politics and economics. They inject emotions into it where there should be none. They simply will never understand how the world actually functions on the ground and the poll is evidence of this. Most people do not understand the concept of cumulative results and direct and indirect impacts. Such concepts to the average person are mere conspiracy. They don't have the IQ's to process them.[/QUOTE]

    These days? Perhaps-because Reagan was hated from his candidacy to the inauguration of Bush.

    I was an infant when Carter was POTUS, but I respect your opinion.

    Was Carter worse than Obama? Of course Im asking in your opinion.
