Reagan pros: Led free world to Cold War victory, low taxes, he wasn't Carter, he was no bullshit (PATCO strike), supported strong foreign policy (SDI, withdrew from SALT II, Reagan Doctrine) ,  no pandering to gays ("AIDS Gate"), Reaganomics

cons: FOPA, high debt, IRNF Treaty

This is all that comes to mind at the moment.

I don't have much hope in Obama. I have said this about 1000 times on this forum.
Just because I'm not kissing the  Reagan arse doesn't mean I'm an Obama supporter.

Said the lib with only 465 posts at this time.   :rolleyes:

I'm going on his policies and record.

I think it is you guys who are believing in this " conservative hero " myth that has been built up over the last 20 odd years.

Did you mean to say "your opinion" of his policies and record?

I'll take a Conservitive Hero over a Liberal God, any day

It is fairly obvious when says something on an internet forum, they're stating their own opinion.

Recalling a beloved President's birthday hardly constitutes kissing his arse.   Or for showing him the respect he well earned and deserves. 

As Solar alluded to for another reason:   

"I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience."

Reagan-Mondale debate: the age issue

That is my point right there Turk. Reagan was called the ' great communicator' for a reason. He could side track serious questions with witty but irrelevant answers and people thought he was great.


In the same way the left will still love Obama, even though he doesn't do anything, people will the Reagan.

Image is more important than facts. We judge our presidents on personality.

It's actually rather entertaining how the libs try and marginalize Reagan yet put Clinton and Obama on pedestals...

And there's your problem, that's all you ever hear the leftist media credit him for, when that was only a small part of the man.
Does winning a war without firing a shot mean anything?
Did Husein go to Libya and set Gaddafi straight and use his brilliant oration skills, the left praises him for?
Of course not, instead he bombed the Hell out of the place without Congress consent.

Point is, you have no historical reference as to what a true leader is, Reagan was one of those people, you may not agree with his views because you think losing freedom isn't that big of an issue, but to the rest of us, turning back the clock as he did is why he gets the respect he deserves from the Right.
That's right, he reversed liberalism in it's tracks for a good long while. I guarantee you, had it not been for the RINO H W Bush, we wouldn't be in the mess we are today.

I like how no one is allowed to say something negative about Bush/Reagan, otherwise it's called 'bashing'.

I will let you worship your idol, we all need something to believe in.


Worship eh? interesting choice of words. I don't recall seeing anybody putting halo's on Ray Guns Or Bush.

Yet you can't seem to get it through your head these two are polar opposites, one loved the country, the other hates the country and wants to fundamentally change it.
Like it or not, Reagan had our Country's best interests at heart, Husein has no interest in a prosperous free mkt, he wants Nationalism/socialism, leading inevitably to Communism he's a Nationalist Socialist.
