    Fabrication, cruel and counterproductive policies at home and abroad, bloating of the deficit, widening the gap between rich and poor, creating a politicized government bureaucracy: These are the Reagan & Bush legacies. As Republican candidates seek to portray themselves as Tribunes of the People, their Democratic opponents need to remind Americans exactly what they are in real life; by their deeds not their words. -a little artistic license

    So libs were a no show in executive and legislative positions during those years?

    Or were they there but were just too stupid to do anything? Clinton didn't exist? His administration did not come up with Regime change in Iraq? :lol:

    Obama hasn't adopted Bush's foreign policy so far? I mean come on man. Take the blinders off.

    You moonbats are too much. :lol:
    Your tired DU and Kos talking points are just sooo old. You are completely deluded.

    The trouble with you libs is that you spend too much time talking with other braindead libs and then come onto the other forums like this and spew this crap as if it's truth.

    Yeah, we really didn't need Reagan to bring down the Berlin Wall, create 15 million jobs in 8 years, and cut inflation 75%. We should have just let Carter's inflation, gas lines, and hostage crisis continue another 4 years.

    Besides Reagan, who most of you left-wing nuts can't admit was an effective leader, recent GOP presidents have been pretty bad. W was the worst pres. since Carter. Daddy Bush was wobbly and deserved not to get re-elected. Ford was forgettable, Nixon a criminal.

    Clinton was pretty good, but was helped by a Congress that stopped his wife's horrendous health care bill from passing. Nonetheless, he signed NAFTA and a capital gains tax cut which many conservatives seem to have forgotten about. Carter was the worst post-war pres by a mile, possibly worst of the century. Johnson was pretty bad, but not as bad as W. Kennedy had balls.

    So I'd say GOP presidents tend to be worse than Dem presidents, but they've also given us the best one we've had since WW2.

    Republicans like to call names.

    They could argue that Republicans didn't raise the deficit, but can't because they did.

    They always say they are "pro" education except for science.

    They say they want "freedom" but then want to shackle the government with religion.

    They are anti all the "isms", communism, facsism, but don't know what any of those mean.

    They are anti government health care but say, "Don't touch my medicare".

    Sad, really.
