2. You forgot: Ignored the largest health care crisis in America since the Spanish flu and

closed Federal Mental Hospitals, dumping mentally disturbed people into the streets.

3. And no one other than his handlers knew that he had Alzheimer's.

 

What an actor.

And his handlers should all get Oscars for their supporting roles.

1 Iran-Contra Affair
2 El Mozote Massacre
3 Department of Housing and Urban Development grant rigging
4 Lobbying scandal
5 EPA scandals
6 Inslaw Affair
7 Savings & loan crisis
8 Debategate

6. Reagan was an insecure person and would do anything as long as he was being told he was doing a good

job. Whether it be as someone earlier said, turning out many mentally sick people with no where to go except to the streets or turning a blind eye to poppy and ollie north's south American forays that cost many lives btw. Yeah reagan was a work alright. Yes, through him 32 years ago our country took a turn for the worse.
