The 20th Century's Greatest President
This man and his policies defeated the Soviet Union without the shedding of blood. Great job I think. Of course I understand that the liberal/leftist on this BB are not enamored by Reagan but I thought I would at least get an Amen or two.
I probably agree. But I also like ol' Teddy from what I know about him.
Reagan's real strength was in surrounding himself with really smart, talented people and letting them do their job. An egomaniac or micro-manager he was not. Methinks Nancy was a bit of a kook.
Too many myths about Reagan. He was not a great president.
Reagan kicked the mentally ill out of hospitals and increased homelessness. Did not see people sleeping in parks and under bridges prior to Reagan.
Reagan ignored AIDS refusing to fund medical research or help for those who had it.
Reagan supported the apartheid government in South Africa.
His complete failure in Lebanon.
He did some good things. He will go down as an average president.
Truman probably made more right decisions on exceedingly important issues than any other president, at least in the latter half of the 20th century.
Check this out:
I don't expect any Marxist to believe Reagan was the greatest because he brought down the Marxist Soviet Union, so I understand where you are coming from Crabby! But how can you live when you keep your head in a dark smelly place all the time!
So? I wonder what his opinion would be if he could see the mess it would create and how our own foreign policy would be drastically affected to our detriment.
And I can just about assure you that he would be aghast at the atrocities that the Zionists committed against the Palestinian inhabitants of the land.
As usual Crabbie your mouth kicks in well ahead of your brain!
And no mention of Bummer reducing sanctions on Iran!
Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan
Same hoof in mouth disease Crabbie!
Aids in this country was caused primarily by the lifestyle of sexual perverts. Actually the emphasis should be on Alzheimers research and similar diseases such as Lewy Body dementia.
However, I would note the efforts of George W Bush in combating AIDs in Africa where it apparently originated. All Obummer has done for Africa is let the radical Muslims move in!
And all this time I thought your favorite was LBJ.
Not every person is able to make the tough decisions required to be president. The only thing that I know of in LBJ's favor is he had sense enough to know that he was not man enough to be president and did not run for a second term.
Where were the homeless sleeping during the 8-9 year Franklin Delano Roosevelt Depression? Roosevelt policies extended the Hoover Depression 8 years until he got us involved in WWII and instituted the draft. O'Bummer just extends the Bush recession and gives us Obummercare!
Crabby you routinely make the most asinine statements of anyone on this BB. Does that require special training, is it caused by a viral or bacterial infection and is it contagious, or is it sadly a genetic disorder?
Crabby one reason I know Reagan is the Greatest President of the 20th Century is all the nut cakes on the WWW sliming him! If he were not the greatest they would not go to the trouble.
That's a total lie. Kennedy started the closing down of mental hospitals. In this state, it was Democrat Evan Bayh, uber liberar, who shut down the mental hospital for Indianapolis. As for the garbage about homelessness, that, too, is a lie. Probably FDR had more homelessness than any other President but homelessness is as old as the human race. You would think that the Democrats would put a tax on people who don't have a home the way they put a tax on people who did not have health insurance....
In that respect he did have some sense. Next to the one in office now, I think he is the worst President of the last 100 years.
A total train wreck...of his own making.
Reagan was not afraid to call the Soviet Union "The Evil Empire". That gave a lot of Communist loving democrats in the country heartburn but Reagan persists and the Soviet Union fell.
When Reagan proposed his Strategic Defense Initiative the lefties called it Star Wars. Well Reagan was correct again; Star Wars works and could be expanded were it not for Obummer!
LBJ did not run because he knew he would loose and politicians hate to be loosers
You may be correct.
However i really believe after being president for awhile LBJ found out he did not have what it took to make tough decisions in war. Also he was a congenital liar. This apparently helped him while in the Senate but was a liability in the White House. Apparently he was not sharp enough to keep track of his lies!
