Obama couldn't even hold Reagan's jockstrap. Carter was sending this country down the abyss, and Reagan turned it around and created one of the
biggest economic booms in world history. He also created the massive war machine that all his successors get to play around with.
When Reagan spoke on the world stage, friends and foes listened intently. He meant what he said and his interest was in the U.S. and not selling us
out to the lowest bidder. One of the few presidents who could make other world leaders shake in their boots. He was considered a war monger by his
stance on defense yet was a major proponent of peace. He bluffed the Soviets with SDI leading to its collapse several years later.
Our trade deficit with China on Reagan's watch reached a height of SIX MILLION a year. With Bush/Obama, its almost 300 BILLION a year.
Liberals whine about Reagan's deficits that were used to counter the Soviets? Obama put that eight year debt to shame in his first year and still has
NOTHING to show for it. Take away the Soviet threat and the money used to counter it, every year during Reagan's two terms we would have been running
Every penny spent on Reagan's watch led to something substantial. Obama flushes trillion dollar checks down the toilet with nothing to show for
Reagan was willing to risk World War III to get those hostages out of Iran if they were still there when he was inaugurated. Obama was gonna let the
hostages in North Korea rot until Bill Clinton went over there and begged for their release. We currently have hostages in Iran right now and Obama
doesn't even mention them.
This thread's existence is an insult to the legacy of Ronald Reagan.
