      Socialism, Statist Capitalism, and Big Government have never been good for workers or anything other than Big Business.

      The greater the state, the smaller the person.

      If Obama the Ignorant and the Hildabeast, along with the Democrat Party, really wanted to help the Middle Class and Workers they'd be championing the abolition of as much government as possible. But, instead they champion Big Government and oppressing the Middle Class and Workers.

        To listen to Republicans talk, you would think Ronald Reagan was the end all be all of conservatism. He is without a doubt their legend – their hero. The party should really be renamed the Grand Old Party of Reagan.

        Well, if President Obama is “weakening” America by trying to use diplomacy with Iran, then what would they say if he had sold illegal arms to Iran and negotiated for the release of hostages? Because that’s what Reagan did. Could you imagine if the Obama administration was caught selling illegal weapons to Iran?

        While it’s true President Obama has pushed for a bill that would offer a path to citizenship for some undocumented immigrants, did you know it was actually Ronald Reagan in 1986 who passed a full-on amnesty bill? In fact, the president’s bill is basically the same thing Reagan passed almost 30 years ago. Only one is considered a “conservative legend” while the other is called “un-American.”

        We also can’t forget the claims that President Obama is always on vacation. Never mind that he’s taken far fewer vacation days than George W. Bush at the same time in both of their presidencies, but he’s also on pace to take far fewer than Reagan as well.

        Funny thing though, he’s on pace to issue fewer executive orders than both Bush and Reagan – especially Reagan. So, if President Obama is an “unconstitutional tyrant” who is constantly trying to bypass Congress, what was Reagan considering the fact that he issued more executive orders than any president since Eisenhower?

        if Republicans want to keep trying to slam President Obama for the things I’ve listed in this article, then it’s time they denounce their love for Ronald Reagan. Because when it comes to these issues, “Saint Reagan” should be considered worse for conservatives than President Obama on every single one.

          On Iran-Contra...

          Given the post Sandinista history of Nicaragua, I'd say that black op was a success both to that country and the US. The alternative likely would have been most of Central America ending up in despotic Communist dictatorships of the sort like Cuba or Socialist ones like Venezuela where the populace is poor and oppressed and the country is an economic basket case.

          At the same time having Iran supplied with a minimum of stuff to aid in keeping them fighting Iraq wasn't a bad thing either.

          Obama's negotiations with Iran have been in essence capitulation to Iran's demands without getting anything in return.

              The OP and thread is focused on economics and relative effects of the two POTUS'. The difference between "making wealth" and "taking wealth" is one perspective. We see here often, by the posts and positions, where members fall in those two classifications/categories.

              This lists some of BHO's wealth redistribution a.k.a. "investments" and the lackluster consequences;

                  Reagan has been gone for a long time and so has the America he presided over. The current situation has been Democratically created under the Obama administration. Talking about Reagan is nothing more than a feeble attempt to divert attention from the most incompetent and catastrophic president in history. One might as well bring up Lincoln and FDR while they're at it.
