Reagan's record is complete with good and bad just like all Presidents. The difference is the good in the Reagan record far outweighs the bad and that drives liberals crazy. Is there really anyone out there that wouldn't take the Reagan economy today vs. what we have? How about the Reagan Debt in 8 years? How about the Reagan economic growth? All liberals want to talk about is the debt which Obama will create in less than 2 years.
he was a simpleton who was a pawn of the republican power brokers
it was cheaper to borrow money from the mafia than the 20% prime rate charged during his term. that wiped out those who were not wealthy and were unable to weather the economic storm ... but that elite was then able to acquire assets very cheaply in the liquidation aftermath
reagan implemented the neocon 'starve the beast' strategy to reduce programs for the social safety net by spending the money instead on unworkable crap such as his star wars effort
and he was a racist. Herbert says it best here:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/13/op...13herbert.html... He was opposed to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was the same year that Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney were slaughtered. As president, he actually tried to weaken the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He opposed a national holiday for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He tried to get rid of the federal ban on tax exemptions for private schools that practiced racial discrimination. And in 1988, he vetoed a bill to expand the reach of federal civil rights legislation. ...
why do liberal Americans have a problem with reagan you ask; in short, reagan was a putz
I certainly understand why people like you need so called leadership like Obama's. It doesn't matter what one does in your world when that someone is spending us into oblivion.
Liberals always think with their hearts instead of their brain, always create victims, and always show intellectual dishonesty in their rhetoric.
Reagan took office with a 900 billion debt and left it at 2.6 trillion
Obama took office with a 10.6 trillion debt and after less than 2 years it is almost 13 trillion.
