    I am fed up with all this revisionist history in which Reagan was the best president since George Washington. It's all bullshit folks, and here's why:

    * "Trickle down economics" -- the basis for the infamous Reagan tax cuts -- was utter bullshit and did not work. At all.

    * He expanded the national debt in unprecedented amounts. Yes, so have others since, but his was a Great Leap Forward.

    * He and his wife relied on astrologists to help them make decisions about the country. WTF Nancy was even involved, no one knows...but to use a horoscope is inexcusable.

    And my personal favorite:

    * By embracing the Moral Majority, Reagan opened an era of religious lunacy in American politics, especially in the Republican Party. We are still paying for this. Pols in America have to pander to the Very Stupid to get elected...and that is almost entirely Reagan's fault.

    Knock it off with the Great Communicator horseshit.

    Reagan ushered in the era of the Neocons.


    the one thing that convinced me that Reagan was a teflon president was his wifes use of astrologers and ZERO backlash from the religious right.

    He ruined manufacturing jobs. He sided with big corporations, while hurting the middle class.

    The only trickle down under the Reagan rule was from increased government spending.
    the same way Bush2 kept the economy artificially pumped up.

    every president makes some mistakes.

    Reagan didnt make many mistakes he did his shit on purpose.

    They want this economy we have right now and worked hard to get us here.
