    He seems to think as much. Did you hear him compare himself to Reagan during the debate the other night? My friend is working on this film you guys should check out. It's kind of interesting when you see what else Kerry had to say about Reagan. Let me know what you think.

    I find it ironic since he was the one leading the charge against Reagan's so called irresponsible actions in bringing down the Soviet Union. Anything toi win an election goes to new lengths when you look at Kerry's political history.

    You need to go back one more President. Kerry is the next Carter, if anything. Anyone that was around in the late 70's know just how frightening that is.

    Too bloody right, Jimmy. Ronald Reagan snatched this republic back from the abyss - it's as simple as that.

    For once, I actually understood a Kerry message.

    Jimmy Carter lost his reelection because:

    1. Oil prices HAD shot through the roof
    2. The economy WAS bad
    3. Iranian Terrorists HAD him by the b&lls; taking many hostages at one time


    Now G.W. Bush is struggling to win reelection because:

    1. Oil prices HAS shot through the roof
    2. The economy IS bad
    3. Iraqi Terrorists HAS him by the b&lls; taking many "heads" at one time


    So what is John Kerry saying in his comparison to Ronald Reagan?

    Is he saying that he is the next "Ronald Reagan" by virture of history, or is he saying that GW Bush is the Republican Party's "Jimmy Carter".

    Hyrda. The economy isnt bad. We have frickin full employment going. We have minimal inflation. We arent even in a recession anymore. What makes you think the economy is bad?

    Iraqi terrorists are dying. We arent trying to negociate with them like Carter did, we are kill them.

    You libs are living in a fantasy world.

    Yeah, things are just like they were when Carter was Pres. alright.

    I bought my first house during the Carter years. I used my VA cert. to negotiate a
    lower interest rate combined with a special state bond program for first time home buyers,
    which also dropped my interest rate a bit. Yeah boy, when I walked away from that
    closing table with a 12 1/2% rate it was a steal!!! The norm at time was around 20%.

    What are the rates today in this F-ck up economy? 5-6%? Without any special programs.

    Here's what I think of ole Jimmy.:gross2:

    Hopefully, he'll end up like Reagan in one respect, that he'll have a kid who preaches opposing political values in his name after he's too dead to object. As for the other comparisons: not a chance.
