Many of the policies align up on a macro level. Sure, Obama has some real stupid policy, like Obamacare... but Raegan has his share of stupid policy as well.

In terms of a leader, Reagan was a much better president. I don't think anyone (in their right mind) would argue differently. While I agree with this, it's quite concerning how inaccurately the OP is representing both, Reagan and Obama by twisting facts.

Refer to my previous post. It appears you have something against learning.

I even agree with you about Reagan being a better leader... but you should really represent them more accurately. Apply the context.

You are trying to steer this towards a policy argument which is not the content of the thread. I'm talking about leadership.........not policy.

I'm not trying to steer it towards policy. You made statements about things that both Reagan and Obama said in your OP. But those statements are out of context. All I'm saying is to apply context to them so you get a better understanding about the two presidents. If you're going to present the two leadership styles, at least do so accurately.

I'm not saying anything about policy (except for what I said in my first post in this thread).

Reagan was the most effective leader in my lifetime or my fathers. Reagan was the epitome of a leader. Obama is not even in the same catagory. If leadership was a horse race, Reagan would be The famous Man O War and Oabma would be the Mule outside the fence....

Sadly, we haven't had a quality candidate like Reagan step up in the last few elections.

The above is the definition of revisionist history.

I'm sorry but your post makes no sense. The context of the two in question are out of context but they are the context of the entire thread. I guess I may be out of context soon. Wouldn't be the first time. LOL Well first time in my own thread I guess.
