    I call BS. If Reagan were running today, you’d call hime a RINO and run him out of town.

    Ima is a Torrie, it would have supported the British during our revolution.

    You don’t tell deliberate lies, but sometimes you have to be evasive. Margaret Thatcher

    Not so sure how well the two got along, especially considering the fact that Mr. Reagan initiated an attack on Grenada (a “just” war, I’m certain), which is a British protectorate. Forgot to talk to Ms. Thatcher first….

    They may have been the right leaders for their time, but I would hardly put them above Abraham Lincoln or Winston Church.

    and the thing is, even if he did have a touch of it he is still and always be what saved us from Carter. He is and always be 10 times better than Carter 2 I mean Obama.

    Reagan and Thatcher were in bed together. “Give to the rich and to Hell with the poor.”

    Maybe it helps, passes the time waiting for congress to do anything to veto or sign, possibly annotated.

    “And now, you have endless problems with no solutions.”

    Wait, I thought Obama was the Second Coming of Christ, here to solve all of the problems of the world. No more poverty, economic prosperity for all, world peace, no prisoners at Gitmo, millions of green jobs, everyone with an above-average salary, and the list goes on and on.

    What, that didn’t happen? Dang, I guess He’s just a fallible human after all.

    Well, considering that both were little more than PR “manufactures” – at best – one could, sort of, make their faces more or less interchangeable., Hollywood and Whitehall both being greatly inclined to adore bogus phonies.


    But, with all due deference to our dearly beloved, “Ms.Ima”, there really were quite a number of GENUINE leaders, movers, and shakers who held the Highest Office – elective, in contrast to royal inheritance – in their Nations both before and after Maggie and Ronnie. Indeed, Jimmie Carter comes to mind here, as an example for the U.S.A. At least, he did NOT – and/or was not even thought to – have Alzheimer’s while IN OFFICE. And, his wife’s Astrologer did NOT set his appointments, either. That last reality, alone, places Carter so far above and beyond Ronnie as not to be at all comparable.


    Not being – nor ever even caring to be – English, or part of the U.K., I’ll leave other evaluations of Maggie to those over whom she “ruled”, as the “Iron (Fisted/Mouth) Lady”, as their media had/has it.

    I think if you look at the figures, you will find Bill Clinton presided over the biggest peacetime expansion in history. Reagan presided over the morphing of the tax code away from investors and corporations and toward the individuals. There’s a reason the young adults during Reagan’s administration were called part of the “me” generation.

    During his administration, most every middle-class department store went out of business. Cheap flourished, and so did way expensive; but middle went down. And so it goes today.

    And don’t forget one of the largest tax increases ever, in 1986. In all, Reagan raised taxes 11 times; this according to his budget director. Even he realized that deficit spending would turn evil.

    And can anyone tell me why so many people who think government is the problem are so willing to become part of the problem?

    Yes, Reagan said that. Then he vastly increased the size of the government. With Reagan, and similar con artists, you need to look at what they DO, not what they SAY. Your opinion will change greatly.
