    Default Revisionism ala Ronald Reagan

    Sorry to all you Ronald Reagan admirers but I think that maybe we should take a look at what was going on and what the feelings were during the time when he was in office. Time has a wonderful quality of clouding the recollections of people who idolized President Reagan especially it seems the Conservative media.

    Not sure who said they "hated" him.
    He was just wasn't the savior he's been made out to be by the RWM.
    Funny thing is, he wouldn't even get a nod in today's GOP.

    He happened to come along at the right time. We had a succession of weak presidents, at least in the personality department, and he certainly had plenty of that.

    Don't hate him at all. Just telling it like I see it. We haven't had a good man in the White House for a long time. Maybe mostly because a lot of them are being controlled by other people. The bills just keep increasing ........ of course we have others to blame congress etc. also. If we would just stop throwing money around like we had it to burn we might be able to get this nation back.

    I also voted for him and remember clearly the hostage release from Iran. Jimmy Carter was reviled and Ronald Reagan brought alot of hope in a time that was tough time economically and politically.

    Some of you here should not take this personally just try to be a little more objective.

    You don’t have to “hate on him” to acknowledge the truth about him. If that puts me in the minority, so be it.
