Two bears quoted Margret Thatcher above in her praise of Reagan. In the UK thats probably not such high praise as those overseas might think, she was if anything more virulent in her dislike of the soviets than him so anything that harmed them got a nod of approval from her. Remember also that her domestic policies caused one of the only riots in the centre of London in living memory.

Have to say I have a lot of Sympathy for Nancy, she looked frail anyway, but this seemed to have completely knocked the stuffing from her.

You might want to suggest that he put "el ted" at the end of his post rather than at the beginning. I (and I suspect some other people as well) thought it was you talking to him in those first couple of posts in this thread, which was kind of confusing since we didn't see his name above yours in the list of names.

Actually, truth be known, the Cold War was more like a tag team wrestling match and war of itrition... Reagan just happened to be in the right spot at the right time, just as Bill Clinton was oin the 90's when the economy was so good and where Carter was in the 70's when it wasn't. Fir the most part presidents get way too much credit or blame for stuff that happens under their watches unless they buck the system with radical ideas. Both the current Bush and Reagan fall into that radical category... That in itself doesn't make them bad, however, since FDR and LBJ are also in that ctaegory. What makes both this Bush and Reagan bad, IMO, is their disregard for the middle and lower class... And in Bush "The Currents" case, a huge appitite for holding power at any expense (think Iraq here...).

Fact: He spent more money than all previous presidents combined.
Fact he ran up the national debt to 3 trillion dollars

Sorry Kendall; you those are not facts.

It IS true that the national debt went up to three trillion; but that was not the responsibility of President Reagan.

1. after the Carter rule, the cost of borrowing money sent up dramaticaly. Don;t you remember the double digit inflation and high rates of interest.

2. The President does not have control of the purse strings. CONGRESS DOES.

The Congress submits bills, and the president has two choices sign or veto the bill. Congress loads bills that the president wants with all kinds of pork barrel projects such as spending millions to see if loud noises affect deaf dogs negatively, spending millions every year to maintain a dock that will never be used. This dock was designed to be the dry dock for a single ship. well that ship sank years ago, but they still spend millions in the useless dock.

If you don;t believe me; read the constitution and see what the three branches (congresss, judicial, and executive) have dominion over.

Neither GHW or GW Bush are conservative.

I have made it abundantly clear that I do not like GW bush. A person that refuses to keep their word; I have no use for.

Several times; GW has appealed to the conservatives by saying he will veto a bill, then signs the bill.

Don't get me started on the patriot act 1 and 2 that is damaging out freedom.

Don't get me started on the mexican border where about 50,000 illegals are streaming across the border every month.

A revealing summary of Reagan's politics begins:

"I liked Ronald Reagan, despite the huge divide between us politically. Reagan was a charming old pro who gave me hours of his time in a series of interviews beginning in 1966 when he was running for governor, simply because he enjoyed the give and take. In fact, I often found myself defending the Gipper whenever I was confronted with an East Coast pundit determined to denigrate anyone, particularly actors, from my adopted state. Yet, looking back at his record, I am appalled that I warmed to the man as much as I did.

"The fact is that Reagan abandoned the Roosevelt New Deal - which he admitted had saved his family during the Great Depression - in favor of a belief in the efficacy of massive corporate welfare inculcated in him by his paymasters at Warner Bros., General Electric and the conservative lecture circuit. Though Reagan the man was hardly mean-spirited, Reagan the politician betrayed the social programs and trade unionism he once believed in so fiercely. "

Fact: He spent more money than all previous presidents combined.

Fact: He never even submitted one.
Fact he ran up the national debt to 3 trillion dollars.
Fact: He created the biggest tax hike in history
Fact: Everything doubled under his rein.
Fact: He lied about arms for hostages.
Fact He lied about Iran-Contra
Fact: He declared ketchup a vegetable so he could cut funding for school lunches.
Because of his policies thousands of mentally ill and poor are now on the street with no place to live and no way to get the medical care they need. They are only noticed when they panhandle or kill someone.

Question, why do so many people practically worship this lying phony?
Maybe it's because he makes Bush look better?

You are probably blaming him for the national debt. May I remind you the many times; Every time President Reagan sent the spending plan to the house after the state of the union; the Democrat congress called the spending bill DOA (Dead On Arrival).

My understanding of the situation is that the Democrat congress called Reagan's spending bills DOA because they were too big (extravagant), not because they were economically or fiscally responsible.

I'm waiting for the conspiracy crowd to accuse Reagan of carefully planning his death in order to take the heat off W and the Iraq prison scandal. Or, someone's bound to accuse W of murder sooner or later.

Greg, I was 13 when Reagan was elected the first time. I truly don't remember much about it. I remember there was some question about the hostage release, but my question has always been, why wasn't Carter able to pull it off long before that? Were they all in cahoots together? I don't know. What I meant by my statement was that I don't recall there being any brouhaha about the voting process that year, like there was in 2000.

A few years back there was a story on Dateline, or one of those news shows, about the woman who had been the president of Reagan's fan club back in his acting days. It's well known that he liked to write letters, and he corresponded with this lady for many years - even after he became governor, even after he became President. He took the time to write to this lady. I think that's a pretty good show of decency. I imagine, though, someone will come up with some nefarious reason why he did it. Go ahead.

And remember, hatefulness only hurts the hater.

Shoot, Martin, if you think calling someone "juvinile" is my "only" arguement, you apparently haven't been around here too long or read been reading my posts... Sorry that you find my arguments "boring" but that's Boss Hog's usual reaction to those of us in the working class.

Not too many musicans that I can think of, KimC, that I want as president... When I was in college I was selected from hundreds of applicants to an experiemental class limited to 10 students. It was taught by T. Edward Temple who was at the time the Comm9issioner of the Administartion under Virginia's Governor. The name of the class was "Contemporary Urban Problems Seminar" and lasted two full sememsters. Though I was a History and Poli-Sci major there was nothing that really prepared me for the complexity of the issues we tackled. No, I don't want actors and musicans to be in charge. I want folks who have had to grind some gray matter in running complex systems. Without that experience, all you get is "C student" results. Hey, I don't mind musicans and actors acting in advisory roles but I want some good old fashion "experience", just like if I needed a surgeon. When one elects inexperiences ideologues then what we have today is about all we can expect... Crappy *governace* and more *ruling*. Rulers don't have to explain themselves. I want a guy (or gal) who can explain himself, thank you...

Sorry for the loss you feel but if you take a clear look at the man and the damage he accomplished in his lifetime you will see why it's hard for me to understand how anyone could feel admiration for him.

Well let's see. Lech Walessa of Poland, Lady Margaret Thatcher, Gorbachev, Canadian former prime minister Mulroonet, and even the Liberal media ALL concur that Reagan ended the cold war without firing a shot.

The people of East Germany, Poland, Czhec republic, Slovakia, etc are all free today.

That is more than enough reason to respect the man.

Another reason to respect the man is that he reduced the top tax rate from 70% down to 28%. This gave the wealthy a chance to invest their money into companies, then devices like Computers, CD players, DVD players, Cell phone, etc; possible. The economic boom of the 1980s and 1990s.

You are probably blaming him for the national debt. May I remind you the many times; Every time President Reagan sent the spending plan to the house after the state of the union; the Democrat congress called the spending bill DOA (Dead On Arrival).

The President submits the spending plan; but It is the congress that spends the actual money.

If you would look at the amount of taxes coming into the General fund; the amount of money doubled. By allowing the people to keep more of their money' they were free to invest their money in companies that made home computers, CD players, DVD players, etc possible.

If you are still unable to see any reason to respect a great man; you have my pity.

I shouldn't speak ill of the dead and I apologise in advance.
Reagan as a 2nd Rate actor - that is not my opinion - he generally on made " B" Standard movies - became a leader of the Actors Union.
He was then a Democrat .
I understood he used all his knowledge in this acting profession to gather details of his fellow professionals which was eventually used to stab his fellow actors and performers (including musical) in the back(s) in the Joe McCarthy era / witchhunts. Many of them never worked again in the US.
In reward for imparting all the dirt and accusations, he was fast-tracked into politics by the Republican Party ,from Californian Governorship to President, where he enjoyed a partnership with the other social vandal on the other side of the Atlantic - Thatcher.
I assume that in American politics in the days of the rise of Reagan, Election funds would require more money than that paid to a B Rate movie star .
I estimate his election funds were probably 30 pieces of silver from the Republicans for his McCarthy performances.
Paul Robeson - one of those severely affected by these circumstances , has given me infinitely more pleasure and sense of humanity than Ronald Reagan ever could , and I'm left with the feeling ,that, sometimes such characters are sent to test humanity's resolve, rather than to assist, after all who tested Jesus's resolve more than Judas ?.

It would depend entirely upon the musician, just as it did the actor in Reagan's case. Had it been Jason Robards who won the presidency, I think I'd feel quite differently about it.

"The people obviously had enough faith in Reagan, and that's the only thing that matters."

Oh, I think not. Unless of course, you are prone to accepting handbaskets being bestowed upon you in the devil's hometown.

This is America, where anyone, even an actor, has the same opportunity to become President as anyone else who was born here. If a musician were to run for President, would we be as condescending? The people obviously had enough faith in Reagan, and that's the only thing that matters. They are the ones who elected him. If you didn't like it, Too Bad. There weren't any voting scandals surrounding his elections, if I remember correctly, so no one can complain that he "stole" the elections. He won fair and square. And that's another thing that's really cool about this country.

I didn't vote for Reagan. I couldn't. I was too young to vote both times he ran. And knowing me, I probably would have voted Democrat at the time anyway. The first two times I voted for a President, I actually did vote for a Democrat. (That would be Dukakis, then Clinton, the first time he ran.) But again, let me say, I still respect the office of the President, even if I don't necessarily respect the office-holder.

For the love of all that's good, is it SO HARD for people to be DECENT to each other?

Well... for all of you who accuse the liberals and left of weak mindedness, your imperial executive branch, dreamed of by Nixon and brought to the fore by Nixon has removed from the first US citizen the right to trial by jury - Mr. Padilla, who has been held without charge or trial, and the executive branch says that his crimes remove him from the expectation of rights which define us as a nation. Now, many of those on the right may say, good, "terrorists" don't deserve trials, well, if he is a terrorist, don't you think that the people have a right to hear the evidence, rather than a star chamber deciding who is and who is not an enamy of the state? Why do we have this right? First of all, the US government has been caught in lies in the past, and will lie again, and the courts are the last hope in the face of lies, and because, in the words of the great film a man for all seasons.

"...you are not paying attention to media coverage obviously."

That is correct. It is dull. At times like this, I tune the media out because it is dulle, and because it doesn't matter what that the chattering class has to say about him.

History will judge Reagan, and I'd bet the farm it will be a much harsher judgment than the 24/7 right wing media hagiographies have been.

"Pictures of long lines to pay last respects and thousands of people waiting in line are getting a lot of press. Why? Apparently his death has struck an emotional nerve with many average Americans. Plenty who will jump on the bandwagon."

Nah, Americans, like every body else on the planet, loves to be part of these national dramas, and say "I was there". But there is no genuine grieving going on because the guy and his family had suffered a long time, and Reagan lived a long, privleged, pampered and insulated life. It's just like the Queen Mum debacle, only a helluva lot less pomp, jewels, and gin.

"Don't be surprised if bush uses the Reagan "legacy" to his campaign advantage."

Well, they've certainly exploited it tastelessly and shamelessly so far, we agree on that.

"To the far left out there, guess what? The average American does not come to this web site."

And we are supposed to give a shit about this, or the fact that we aren't in step with the average American idiot that loves the Republicans?

"This thread has proven there are a lot of liberals out there with very little class."

And this from a man who can't resist calling people who don't agree with him things like "You stupid labia face" or "Your head is so fat on one side you will probably tip over" and "why don't you concentrate on finding your dick and start cutting hairs until you find one that bleeds?"

Now that's class.

Tsk, tsk. Your prejudices are showing there, Marty boy.

They'll never get it, dianvan, 'cause they are either:

1. Part of that 1% who porfited so greatly from Reagan's tax cut to the wealthy or..

2. Work in the military/industrial complex or...

3. Brainwashed brownshirts...

Ain't nom other reason I can think of why anyone would worship a man who was deeply dis-compassionate about the working class and poor, who pretty much single handedly killed off the labor movement in the US, turned Bubba against anyone with a little education and vision, waged an illegal war against Congress's wishes and supported "death squads" in South America which targeted intellectuals, social workers, and labor organizers... Hmmmm, sounds a lot like the current crook...

The reason I do not mourn the death of Ronald Reagan is that he made a mockery of the presidency and of the American people who voted for an actor. It was disgusting then and it is disgusting now.

Sorry to blow the image of some of you 'moderates' but I think you should know by now that all 'lefties' are not bleeding hearts.

Couln't a lot of this just be the media stirring up hysteria as usual? Let's face it we get a lot of our information from the media. It's very self-serving. A new story to hype to death for another week.

Hey "Martin baiter"

didn't you change your name from Master baiter?

When are you going to realize it's the other way around?

I guarantee you I am having more fun yanking your chain and blowing this thread up already.

Isn't it really about the kind of hate that you support?

why don't you concentrate on finding your dick and start cutting hairs until you find one that bleeds?

Hah!, again!

Uh, Guest. He's been out of the limelight for 10 years now.

Good chance people might say "Good riddence" when you die also.

Where is your bleeding liberal dainty little heart?

This thread has proven there are a lot of liberals out there with very little class. Especially dianavan who says she will piss on the former prez's grave. Maybe ssomeone needs to piss in her mouth.

I finalized my opinion of Ronald Reagan when he make the statement that, as far as school lunches for children are concerned, ketchup could be considered a vegetable.

He was called the "great communicator" - unfortunately he used his skills to con the American people. Vodoo economics, the biggest deficit ever - I could go on but I won't.

Good riddence!

Moderates like me don't get pissed off. We just shake our head and stay amused at your type AND the Rush Limbaughs of the world.

You are very much alike you know!
