    President Reagan's memory loss might be humerous if President Bush didn't have the same problem. He has forgotten that it was the American voters and taxpayers who put him in office to serve THEM, not the oil companies and drug companies. Too bad we can't impeach him for raping the American consumers who have to pay high prescription drug prices and gasoline and heating oil prices because of his policies.

    It was really funny when he couldn't remember he sold missiles to Iran so he could fund civilian-slaughtering terrorists in Nicaragua.

    What a guy, a real joker.

    I thought Liberals were pro-civilian-slaughtering terrorists (hezbollah, al qaeda, hamas, et al)

    Also, fwiw, we didn't sell missiles to "Iran". We sold them to anti-Ayatollah Khomeini moderates. And the money didn't go to terrorist in Nicaragua, it went to Contra's fighting the terror of communism there. Also the "scandal" devolved into an arms for hostages deal sans authorization of President. (remember Col. North?)

    win-win-win. (scandalous!!!!) LOL

    The US Government sold nothing to Iran. The weapons and material were legally sold to an arms dealer and THOSE arms dealers sold the weapons to Iran. Weren't you just arguing for precedent and correct interpretation of events in another thread?

    Wrong.

    Selling arms knowing that they would eventually end up in the hands of terrorists was not legal.

    Did they know where those arms were headed?

    Yes, they did.

    You don't have your facts straight.

    Wrong again. The Government never sold a single thing to terrorists or Iran. By the way aren't you one of the people that argue that Iran is NOT a terrorist organization?

    Once again for the slow, the weapons were sold to authorized weapons dealers. Those weapons dealers sold them to Iran. Once the weapons were sold legally the money from reselling them is not Government money. An argument could be made that if the Government KNEW the weapons were going to an unauthorized source they should not have sold them. But Reagan was never linked to that at all, just Col North and Admiral Pointdexter and I believe 3 civilians.

    Congress tried to argue that the proceeds from the second sale was Government funds but that is not what they got North on, they got him on accepting a Security system for his house and on bad record keeping for travel checks.

    I watched all the testimony when North was before Congress. He made them look petty and stupid.
