exactly, i guess if you define greatness by the ability to charm the ignorant masses and gain power for your party then Reagan was truly a great man.
Someone please, name one thing that Reagan did that we can all look back and be thankful for. this is what i see as his legacy...
-running up the biggest deficit in history that took 8 years of clinton to overcome
-implementing a more regressive tax structure to favor the wealthy at the expense of the working and middle class
-spearheading draconian drug laws that are largely to blame for overcrowded prisons, loss of judges discretion in criminal matters, violent dangerous criminals released early to make room for the guy who has a mandatory sentence for selling reefer
-influencing prejudice policies against women and homosexuals
yes a great legacy indeed.
So does he have a J.D. or not? If not then why the hell name a frickin school after him? And if launching us into an off the charts deficit and a spiraling economy is what defines a great president than I suppose, yes, yes he was the best.
