And from what I've read/studied think I would have liked serving under the man and appreciated hi as el presidente....unlike somebody in office. Wchich I can't go into.

.

Horseperson as President or Community organizer?

I would take a Horseperson anytime

I was over the voting age when Reagan was President, he rode a Horse and cleaned up Jimmy Carter's Mess, anyone that could cleanup after Carter is great in my book, JC was/is still the worst Presidents in my lifetime

To Republicans he was one of the top 5 presidents, to Democrats he's in the bottom 5.

I thought he was exactly what was needed to clean up after Carter and did a darn good job. Matter of fact I think the economic wave Clinton got to ride started with Reagan.

The economic boom Clinton benefited from was the dot.com boom - Mickey Mouse could have been President and enjoyed a great economy. And yes, Reagan cleaned up after Carter - just as a Republican will have to clean up after Obama...either that or we just go bust as Europe did...

Regan becomes better everyday looking at the sorry excuse for a leader we have now.
Wishy washy on egypt, Puttin thumbing his nose at him, and Obummers response, well Imm just not going to talk to him. SOunds like a sppoiled little brat to me. Seriously ? The American president is going to travel all the way to Russia and not have a meeting ? Completely unqualified for the job, but reelected anyway. I am ashamed for my country.

So are Clinton and Bush and Carter and Ford and Dubya and Eisenhower and Kennedy and Truman and Lincoln and Hoover and...and...and...and...

I figure the rodeo clown at our State Fair would likely do a far better job...

Odd, though, tinyliny...I don't consider CARTER to be part of the good ol' days. Time doesn't make the memory turn sweet for him! Hasn't made me long for Jerry "Whip Inflation Now" Ford, either.

He had some good speech writers and being an actor knew how to deliver them!

I do not understand US politics, heck, I don't understand the British ones either!

All I do know is that nowadays there are few politicians who are there for the good of their country, majority are there for what they can get out of it either power and or wealth.

for some reason I don't think Puttin would be thumbing his nose at Regan. Nor would he have allowed our diplomats to be slaughtered and done nothing about it.
