1. This is why I hate hate hate when people criticize a candidate

As being unpersonable, unlikeable, or a "robot." Democrats do it as often as Republicans. I usually bite my tongue but I think I'll post your cartoon without comment next time I come across a comment like that.

16. Agree.

We should pay attention to their actions, not so much looks and personality.

3. Me either.

It always seemed like he was putting on a show.

A badly acted show.

8. I remember when we teachers were laughing about that.

We joked about it to the lunchroom manager, but she did not find it funny. Made life easier for her as she often took the easy way out making meals balanced.

6. Yet for all that...

and I'm not arguing over one syllable of it, Reagan is a prince compared to the GOP 30 years down the road.

THAT'S how bad it gotten...

G.H.W.B. & Co. played that worthless fuck like a cheap piano.

There's not enough of that today.

12. Alzheimer's disease

Reagan suffered from increasing dementia from Alzheimer's disease. He was the perfect Manchurian president to carry out the wishes of American plutocrats without questioning their motives.

13. Don't forget the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut

The destruction of the Air Traffic Controllers Union set the pattern for the next 30 years of Union Busting.

Also, his wife directed his travel schedule by Astrological sign.

17. this is one of those great cartoons that are educational

I wasn't paying much attention to politics so I've got some big information gaps here.

That's why I love good editorial toons.

Let's not forget how he actively blocked help or even awareness on aids.
And how he invited the monsters christianevangelicalrightwingconservativefascistextremistactivistfundies to the political table.

18. I agree with that. It says so much.

My family are/were mostly Republicans, and they adored Reagan. He could do no harm.

That's when they started becoming anti-union and even questioned that I belonged to my teachers' union. They had never been that way before PATCO. Reagan did a job on unions then.

There's so much more that could go in the cartoon if there were additional frames.
