The Sins of Saint Reagan

LINK
Well look at this Reagan wasn't nearly as conservative as you might have thought he was.
An example
quote:

In 1981, Reagan proposed a large tax cut. But when deficits became a problem, he supported tax increases and signed 11 of them into law. Among them was the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982, the largest peacetime tax increase in American history
Republicans today would deem him a socialist marxist dictator. The tea party would reject him and wouldn't allow him from speaking in any of their events. I like Reagan because he was pragmatic and he made concessions if only he was running instead of Romney I'd think he would avoid being the Tea Party's bitch

You really are just an angry, angry person aren't you?


For a self proclaimed conservative, you really like condemning conservatives.

re: The Sins of Saint Reagan
dude, we have discussed this AD NAUSEUM here in the past. no he was not perfect. but if you think he was more moderate or liberal than conservative overall than you do not have a clue what the terms mean like a fellow poster here named IB Freeman.

you realize alot of his spending was on national defense?? which helped win the cold war??? and that he cut a deal with the SOTH so the speaker could get $$ for SS?

still got federal income tax way down from where carter had it

same with interest rates

same with unemployment

same with inflation

reaganomics worked

we could go on and on here but as i said it has been discussed here before a million times.

I agree with you about how much we need Ronald Reagan to be POTUS today.

re: The Sins of Saint Reagan
I would say we need a Reagan to run today. We need/needed one of two things:
(1) Someone like Reagan who would have the balls to stand up to his party and try (as he did) to do the right thing, or
(2) Someone not as arrogant and diminishing as Obama. Its like he doesn't get tired if fighting. Clinton finally looked for compromise. Obama basically says 'frick you GOP' on everything he does.

And I think it's because of his likability. People like him so much (not anyone on this board of course) they don't really care what he does. It's like a Doctor who is an absolute prick and has the worse bed-side manners as opposed to a Doctor who is so nice and listens to you. Believe it or not the prick is usually the better Doc. So Obama is ? The most terrible Prez ever, but he has such nice bedside manners

How very odd. You were under the impression Ronald Reagan authored TEFRA? Really?
quote:

You are under the impression Romney is the Tea Party's "bitch". Really? Man that's one of the oddest assertions I've seen here -- and there are some real oddities on this board.

Unfortunately, as the Tea Party's libertarian and fiscal tendencies would be a GREAT platform, Romney is no more beholden to TP attitudes than GHWBush.

Very strange OP.

Yeah, before there was Pelosi, there were the Tip O'Neal dart boards. I hated that man.

Reagan became Reagan in August of 1981 when he skullfricked the air traffic controllers and their ill-advised strike. Carter would have given in. So would Obama. Reagan earned the respect of many who had not voted for him. It was a courageous act at the time, a period when unions were held in much higher regard than they are today. He had been elected as an alternative to a weak and ineffective Carter. He rolled the dice and won big. And so did the country as a whole.

He is simply an irritating alter specialist. Having nothing else worth while in his life, he pops in every now and then using a new alter and gets his thrills from stirring up conservatives.

Don't feed the troll and he'll go away in this persona. But he'll be back. He's like jock itch, irritating but nothing to worry about.

Yes that's what conservatism looks like. We have different problems today then we had in the 80s and we need to act accordingly

What was the tax rate when Reagan took office and what was it when he left office? Also how much did taxpayers receive in tax cuts following TEFRA? I'll answer that for you, 375 billion dollars in tax cuts. LINK

quote:

On the other hand, most of Dole's tax increase was actually the partial repeal of future tax cuts that had been enacted in 1981 but had not yet taken place. Despite Dole's bill, taxpayers received more than $375 billion in tax cuts over the following three years


And hey look at that DA, the "conservative" is posting links from The Daily Beast now. Why don't you just come out and admit that you are DA. You aren't fooling anybody.
