22. When I ask people why they think Reagan was a great Prez,
the response I usually get is, "I dunno. He just was. Oh, yeah, he brought down the Soviet Union."

Reagan was an awful President, and his policies have had negative repercussions that are directly related to the huge mess our country is presently in.

Either the intense RW propaganda campaigns during the '80s were enormously effective, or Reagan did a stellar job of acting in his final role.

Maybe Dems should run an actor for Prez. If s/he played the role well, Dems could have a Prez as popular as George Washington was during his tenure.
