Ronald Reagan bankrupted the Russians. They threw the towel in after the first gulf war because we crushed their best weapon systems the first night. They never admitted it, but Russians manned the latest and highest tech systems and they never even saw us coming.
What does any of this have to do with Citigroup, and am I the only one on this message board that actually owns stock?
You would argue that it is not nice to knock a man that's dead. But hell, I hated this pos when he was alive!
Those idiots mourning him now and extolling his virtues never knew the man or his record. When pressed to say exactly what it was he did for the country they hem and haw and babble on about what a great communicator he was. They never mention the damage his fiscal policies did to the under privileged, the disadvantaged of this country.
They forget history because they never read history: Mr. Reagan presided over an unmatched economic boom. Not true! Economy grew slightly faster and higher under Clinton. Mr. Reagan the most popular president of modern times. Again, not true! He was very popular during his first term but in the second term, he was hounded under the shadow of the Iran-Contra scandal. Fact is Clinton had a higher rating in his last two terms than Reagan ever did. Mr. Reagan gave the largest tax break ever in American history. True. But than followed it up with two Hugh tax increases--no other peace time president had ever raised taxes so much on so many people!
Could say much more but Republicans are as deaf as Reagan is dead. So good riddance to him and his kind!
As for Nancy: She is probably too busy consulting her astrologer to worry about what any of his detractors have to say.
However, on a personal note: I remember the time when the US Department of health and education was sued by groups claiming school children were being short changed on government sponsored free lunch programs in that they were not being given the two required veggies with their meal. Regan response was,"Well, Ketchup can be considered a vegetable." I think it was Marie Antoinette who said "let them eat cake!"
