    Didn't bother.

    -Reagan had the biggest saving and loan bailout since the depression.
    -Reagan had the biggest tax hike in history.
    -Reagan's UE numbers hovered around 7% during his first term.
    -Reagan blew up the deficit.
    -Reagan's deregulation of the financial industry led to a new boom/bust economy.
    -Wages for the Middle Class started stagnating around the Reagan era..while the 1% of the American Population's income ballooned.

    In his second election, reagan came within .18% of carrying minnesota and with it every state in the Union.

    How do you think your boy will stack up against that?

    And who continued that de-regulation? And who signed NAFTA?
    And who removed oversight of the entire derivative markets?
    Who built Fannie and Freddie?
    Who ignored glaring signs of deep troubles at F&F all the way up till within months of the collapse?
    Who didn't offer a budget?

    Maybe someday you will join the small number of people who actually care about the extraction of America and who know it isn't Republicans and Democrats...it is the thorough corruption of our nations entire financial system, Agriculture industry, Health care system and at least 2 of the three branches of government are wholly owned and managed by special interest.
    Use both of your eyes and ears.
