The economy was doing well from 1984 all the way through the end of his second term. Not bad, considering the terrible economy he inherited (13% inflation, 20+% interest rates, etc).

I don't think think she wants the headache.
How Ironic will it be to see a Democrat blaming the mess on a Democrat?

I think she'll get the base screaming how it's the womanizing Republicans keeping her from success. It's never their (democrats) fault, and blame is abundant.


That is the DNC way, after all.

Facts are facts...

-During his presidency the black middle class grew more than at any other time in history. Pretty good for a racist.
-His economic strategy (trickle down) created the Yuppies
- He turned around the worst economy into the best economic boon in history
- He crushed the USSR and freed the Eastern Germans


I mean, seriously... he was a total failure


Let's talk about GHWB and NAFTA... now that is a failure

Not a Republican alive who can beat Hillary

Thats because the Dims sold out on welfare. You'd have to be a retard to miss that.
Dims are best at getting the slutty vote.

Some must do the dirty work. We do live in the world where not everybody plays by the same rules". Make up your mind. Either you support covert ops or you don't. Bengazi was a covert op that went bad - sometimes that happens, it's a dangerous and risky business.

Regarding the rest of your "facts" - they are just plain WRONG. We did NOT have "double digit unemployment" during the Carter years. The highest it hit under Carter was 7.8% in July of 1980. The double digit UE rate you mention didn't come about until Reagan had been in office for over a YEAR AND HALF, when in Sept of 1982 the UE rate climbed to over 10%. Though Reagan ENDED with a very low UE rate, for his first 6 years it rarely dropped below 7% and for his first 5 years it NEVER dropped below 7%.

It IS true that inflation was high under Carter (as it was during the first 2 years and (to a lesser extent) the last 18 months or so of the Reagan years, but the really high UE rates were purely a "Reagan years" thing rather than a "Carter years" thing.

Though the Reagan years ENDED pretty well, for most of his 2 terms the economy was not really very good - and whether you want to admit it or not, it's the same pattern Obama is tracing - with a booming stock market but struggling UE rate throughout most of their 2 terms - and like Reagan, Obama will likely finish his 2nd term with a UE rate pretty low.

It really comes to the bottom line , Reagan turn the economy around in 2 years despite the outrageous claims you have made. Carter at one time has 12 percent unemployment. What drove that was partially the Automotive industry were there was massive layoffs. Remember Chrysler going bankrupted?


Carter was a failure, just Obama and Reagan turned it and that's the difference.


Clinton and the President lied (People died) and this was more about running for President rather than Secret Ops. It was know by the DOD it was a Terrorist act against a American Target and they failed to act and put in a reaction team. It was more about the old shell game.
