    So, I guess if Romney looks Reaganesque, it's not that bad of a thing for Obama.
    He may have raised some taxes but cut many others, we were forced out of Lebanon by caterwauling dems and when we left we shelled Syrian positions with battleship fire.

    He gave/sold weapons to Iran, and used the money to fund drug dealers/nun murderers in Nicaragua. Iran sponsored the terrorists who blew up our Marines. After the bombing of the Marine barracks, Reagan cut and run. You can blame the democrats in congress all you want, but they are not the ones who sold weapons to a terrorist nation. His administration did what they did to get around congress.



    Reagan made plenty of mistakes. Most Presidents do, even those who get deified by their supporters.

    Obama sold weapons to Mexico. I think maybe HE'S the Reaganesque one. (according to some)
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Actually Reagan sold new weapons to Israel. Israel's old stock went to Nicaraguan Contras. The Contra's were Choir boys compared to the Sandinista rebels they were battling. Take it from someone that was there in Honduras.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    No, but there were repercussions...Reagen bombed Libya and Qaddafi's adopted daughter became a casualty when the bombs "accidentally" hit their house. Thousands were injured, including his son. I'm not advocating for the murder of children, but those were the stakes back then when Americans were targeted. That was the result of a 1986 bombing of a disco in Berlin that was commonly frequented by US soldiers, killing nearly 80 americans. We haven't heard a peep from Libya till Retardo went on his apology tour of the Middle East who apologized after an American Embassy was hit, making us the laughing stock of the world.
