1981-1989

http://www.quickchange.com/reagan/hose of us w lived (and paid attention) during the Reagan years, life was interesting. What would that wacky, happy guy say or do next? Would he embarrass the country by fallingasleep at an iternational summit? Would he show us some more pie charts while increasing the national debt? Would he allow junk bond kings to destroy entire communities while downsizing fever ruined countless lives?
All this and more. Every day was a new experience, a new challenge to see just how much the American public would take. Of course, the answer (as provided by his next two successors) is: just about anything. Not to pick on the ol' Gipper, but the clips below are a matter of public record. Take a walk down memory lane and remind yourself of why future historians will look back on the Reagan Error and say: "Where was the rest of him?"
Some people may find the following funny, others may find it painful. As there's quite a bit of stuff here, please feel free to use the following links to jump to the year of your choice. Listed are just a couple of "highlights" from each year.

1981 The Reagan Cabinet is installed, but it's cracked
1982 Jobless in "South Succotash"; Marines die; AND deficit climbs
1983 "Nikolai Lenin" (?); Marines die; AND War in Grenada!
1984 No poverty, no hostages; AND any problems are "Carter's fault"
1985 $640 toilet seats; AND don't embarrass the Nazis!
1986 Stockman finks; Just Say No; AND Iran-gate
1987 More hostages; Ollie North; AND "we need McCarthy!"
1988 Bush bombs; "unavoidable accident"; AND heeerrre's Dan Quayle!
1989 Bye bye

Little terminator...these are good


6/16/81
At his third press conference, President Reagan responds to the following:
· The Israeli attack on Iraq - "I can't answer that"
· Israels' refusal to sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty - "Well, I haven't given very much thought to that particular question there"
· Pakistan's refusal to sign the treaty - "I won't answer the last part of that question"
· Israeli threats against Lebanon - "Well, this is going to be one, I'm afraid, that I can't answer now"
· The tactics of political action committees - "I don't really know how to answer that."
When faced with skepticism about his administration's grasp of foreign affairs, the President declares "I'm satisfied that we do have a foreign policy."

Atlantic Monthly publishes William Greider's article "The Education of David Stockman", in which the Budget Director: · Admits "None of us really understands what's going on with all these numbers" · Acknowledges that supply-side economics "was always a Trojan horse to bring down the top rate" · Says of the Reagan tax bill "Do you realize the greed that came to the forefront? The hogs were really feeding." President Reagan is unaware of the article until brought to his attention at his fifth press conference by Leslie Stahl.

When Kissinger first met Reagan, he thought Reagan was a dunce, but after speaking with him for a period of time realized that Reagan had vision head and shoulders over everyone else.

He was guided by principles and excellent negotiating ability to back it up, but left details to aides, yes. So fucking what?

Reagan was the greatest president of the 20th Century, and mindless babbling from imbeciles doesn't change that.

President Reagan vetoes a stopgap spending bill, thus forcing the federal government - for the first time in history - to temporarily shut down. Says House Speaker Tip O'Neill, "He knows less about the budget than any president in my lifetime. He can't even carry on a conversation about the budget. It's an absolute and utter disgrace."

In an interview with Barbara Walters, President Reagan describes his academic record: "I never knew anything above Cs."

I don't waste that much time with babbling Dims like you.

I have 40 years of accumulated knowledge. Are you so stupid as to think one piece of propaganda bullshit can undermine that? :rofl:

You're stunningly stupid.

1982


1/8/82
The White House announces President Reagan has signed off on Ed Meese's plan to grant tax-exempt status to South Carolina's Bob Jones University and other schools that, like it, practice racial discrimination. (see 1/15/82)

1/15/82

President Reagan phones The Washington Post to explain that when his new policy toward segregated schools was announced, he "didn't know at the time that there was a legal case pending." CBS quickly obtains a memo in which intervention in the Bob Jones University case was specifically requested, and on which Reagan had written, "I think we should." (see 2/24/82 and 5/10/82)

At his seventh press conference, President Reagan:
· Claims there are "a million more working than there were in 1980," though statistics show that 100,000 fewer people are employed. (see 2/24/82)

· Contends his attempt to grant tax-exempt status to segregated schools was to correct "a procedure that we thought had no basis in law," though the Supreme Court had clearly upheld a ruling barring such exemptions a decade earlier.

· Claims he has received a letter from Pope John Paul II in which he "approves what we've done so far" regarding U.S. Sanctions against the USSR, though the sanctions were not mentioned in the papal message.

· Responds to a question about the 17% black unemployment rate by pointing out that "in this time of great unemployment," Sunday's paper had "24 full pages of ... employers looking for employees," though most of the jobs available - computer operator, or cellular immunologist - require special training, for which his administration has cut funds by over 30%.

· Misstates facts about California's abortion law and an Arizona program to aid the elderly (see 2/24/82)

· Responds to a question about private charity by observing, "I also happen to be someone who believes in tithing - the giving of a tenth," though his latest tax returns show charitable contributions amounting to 1.4%. (see 2/24/82)

2/9/82
George Bush denies that he ever used the phrase "voodoo economics" and challenges "anybody to find it." NBC's Ken Bode promptly broadcasts the 1980 tape.

Of course he allowed the government to be shutdown many times, Dim, to prevent Democrats' massive over spending.

And Tip O'Neil was a shameless liar.

You're stunningly stupid. :rofl: :rofl:

Yes, Bush was clueless.


So what? Does that undo the undeniable Reagan Boom, Dim? :rofl: :rofl:

Do you think a smattering of google claims represent an objective look at the Reagan presidency, Dim?

No, it's just silly babbling.

Anyone who mindlessly trashes a great president is utterly hopeless and stupid. :rofl: :rofl:

Here's a hint. Reagan's accomplishments are listed in any good history book, not established by babbling imbeciles like you.
