(I pay my respects to Mr. and Mrs. Reagan at the end of this post.)



"The presidency of Ronald Reagan in the United States was marked by multiple scandals, resulting in the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, the largest number for any US president."

Reagan administration scandals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Ronald Reagan also started Americas deficits and national debt, by enacting supply side tax cuts.

But in fairness to Mr. Reagan, I deeply admire his hatred of dictators and the Berlin Wall. I admire his attempted military service. I (deeply) admire his family values and his respect for America's children. ex.ex. And I think Nancy Reagan was love, class, and elegance in its purest form.

Also R. Reagan left America in pretty good shape, and (perhaps) his tax cuts were somewhat justified, (maybe) the rich were paying a bit too much in his time.


After G(H)W Bush and Clinton raised tax rates, America was paying down its national debt and at the top of its game. Unfortunately America could not handle GW Bush's $2.5 trillion dollar tax cut, and the cost of the unneeded Iraq war.

I know how much some of you respect R. Ronald, and it sure appears I respect him too.

Gipper and Nancy heres to you.

Wrong again, Chad.
After the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts, government revenue increased by $785 billion from 2004-2007.

Tax cuts increasing government revenues, is just another republican lie.

Even GW Bush's own economists say "tax cuts do (not) increase government revenues."


"Virtually every economics Ph.D. who has worked in a prominent role in the GW Bush Administration acknowledges that the tax cuts enacted during the past six years have not paid for themselves--and were never intended to. Harvard professor Greg Mankiw, chairman of Bush's Council of Economic Advisers from 2003 to 2005, even devotes a section of his best-selling economics textbook to debunking the claim that tax cuts increase revenues."

Mrs. Nancy Reagan is still with us, I hope that she is doing well.

The source is from "The Center For Public Integrity."

The following link goes to a fairly detailed explanation of the 935 lies.

Now you are using "media matters" as a "source? Lol.

Government revenue increased after the G.W Bush tax cuts.

Government revenue almost doubled after the Ronald Reagan tax cuts.

Government revenue increased after the John F. Kennedy tax cuts.

The "source" is wrong.

Did all of these Democrats also "lie" about Iraq's WMD?
