A rotten scumbag of a president. As authors on this site obviously slant left wing, independent and libertarian, I'm a little shocked at how anyone on UrbanDictionary could defend such a wackjob of a president. Many of you were probably brainwashed into the "Reagan Legacy" - which is easily the biggest presidential hoax of all time. If anyone goes back and researches Reagan's term and reads his personal writings it would become shockingly apparent that Reagan was just manipulating the masses with a fake personality. Reagan figured that since he was formally an actor he could play the role of a character during his whole term.

It is a little known fact that in the early 1960's Ronald Reagan OPPOSED equal rights for African Americans.

Ronald Reagan was one of the worst Presidents this country has seen. He was a total phony who would read from a script to hide his worsening dementia. He cared not an iota for the common man, but was a typical republican, only interested in enriching his big business buddies, and laying waste to the third world.

Least we forget, it was Reagan's policies that brought

1) Change to the federal tax system, giving massive tax breaks to the wealthy and big business, and shifting a horrendous tax burden to the middle class;

2) Change to environmental laws, wrecking havoc on natural resources, endangered species, and the health and welfare of all Americans;

3) Change to labor laws, wrestling hard-earned workers' rights from unions, and causing at least one industry, air traffic control, into paralysis, affecting the safety of air traffic for more than a year;

4) Change to American foreign policy, by selling arms to Iran, and forwarding the profits to right-wing Central American dictators to help fund their death squads;

5) Change to monetary policies resulting in his leaving office with the largest federal deficit yet seen in US history;

6) Change to education - when he could not disband the US Department of Education, as he campaigned to do - he succeeded in reducing Federal education spending by 50%, and ravaged local education control by diverting funding to the state leve.

In addition, there are millions of Californians whose minds and memories are not so feeble as to fail to remember not only the miserable years of the Reagan presidency, but the painful, bitter years of the Reagan governorship.

I for one, being a student at the University of California during Reagan's governorship, saw firsthand his efforts, and "success" in dramatically raising tuition costs while slashing budgets, terminating construction projects, firing Clark Kerr, the popular President of the University, and enraging faculty with his declarations that the state "should not subsidize intellectual curiosity".

His massive cuts to health and welfare benefits in California, and in particular, mental health care, is the single biggest cause of the massive increase in homelessness in California over the past three decades - the tossing out into the streets of thousands of sick people who could not function in society.
Ronald Reagan was a miserable President, a miserable governor, and a miserable person, whose show-biz persona produced a false image that unfortunately continues to endure.

Ronald Reagan:

One of the worst presidents this country has ever had...

The president know best for bringing back poverty to the masses and for slowing research into aids research. Also responsible for a scandal in central America.

This presidents who spoke highly of "the trickle down theory" The same doctrine that inflicted homelessness on so many American people. Reagan's economic policies helped
Corporation get over on their employees. He allowed them to pollute the oceans, poison the air. And pay less taxes while doing so.

Reagan supported the proliferation of nuclear missiles and germ warfare. He and president Bush are responsible for training Al Al-Qaeda, Training weapons and materials provided by U.S. and our own CIA. Side note- George Bush(then the vice president was the former head of the CIA)

One would need a great many pages in the Urban dictionary to completely define this man. Suffice it to say, He embraced many dark ideals and intolerance. He and his administration are responsible for many great wrongs.

It should also be noted that Reagan fought increasing the minimal wage vehemently.

Towards the end of his life and presidency they were having to remove a wart from his nose which kept growing back. Many people thought that he had lied so much during his presidency that he had, in-fact, affected reality; and his nose would grow when he lied. Which seemed to be most of the time.

2.) The president who John Hinckley failed to kill.
Ronald Reagan:

There are too many examples to list of how evil this man was.
Fighting the minimal wage increase. Halting medical research for AIDS and cancer. Killing innocent people in central America and ushering in an economic policy that devastated so many lives. His policies allowed the rich to exploit the middle class and poor. He gave tax relief to corporations while denying medical care to American citizens. And although the taxes went up, Bills to provide national health were rejected medical research was under-funded and more money went to defense contractors and weapons development.

I the author of this definition celebrate the day of his death (Ronald Regan) as well as others such as Pope John Paul II

For those of you who wish to do the same those dates are June 6, 2004 for Reagan

1. someone who took credit for the concerted work of Mikael Gorbachev, Jimmy Carter, Pope John Paul II, Lech Walesa, and Vaclav Havel.

2. Thought we could shoot down nuclear missles with lasers in space.

3. Why we treat the poor with contempt instead of compassion.

4. Oversaw some of the most mediocre economic performance of the last half century.

5. Actively supported some of the worst scum on Earth, including Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

6. Sold weapons to Iran so he could finance nun-raping drug runners.

7. Why we have a 9 trillion dollar debt today.

Ronald Reagan fans are completely delusional

Reagan is largely a PR creation in the first instance, and massively so in recent years.

During his years in office, Reagan was not particularly popular. Gallup polls published recently compare him during office with other presidents. His average ratings during his years in office were below Kennedy, Johnson, Bush I, and Clinton; above Nixon, Ford, Carter. Those are averages during their terms in office.

By 1992 he was ranked just next to Nixon as the most unpopular living ex-president.

Since then there has been an immense PR campaign to convert him into a revered and historic figure, if not semi-divine, and it's doubtless had an effect, radically shifting the rankings. Not on the basis of facts: rather, extremely effective marketing. The current performance is reminiscent of the death of Hirohito and Soviet leaders. One of the more depraved moments of US media. The lying is quite impressive, even by people who surely know better.
Ronald Reagan, the public face of the extremist, arrogant and violent neo-conservative administration of the 1980's

The Right Wing prick president who sold WMDs to Saddam in the 80s.
Wait, isn't that why we invaded Iraq?

Ronald Reagan is the perfect example of how corrupt our government has become.

A misogynistic president known for having history rewritten about him more times than George W. Bush (his protege) told a lie.

1. He cut middle class taxes (Truth: he raised taxes 11 times)
2. He defeated the Soviets as victor of the Cold War (Truth: The Soviet Union's deterioration began well before his inauguration in Jan/1981)
3. His policy geared peaceful outcomes (Truth: spent money on useless missile programs, Iran-Contra, Latin America guerrilla war financing, provided weapons to Hussein in Iraq vs. Iran, built up Taliban like Armies in Afghanistan's battle against the Soviets)
4. He was a fiscal conservative who presided over a strong economy (Truth: Unemployment hit its highest point since the Depression in 1982, the national debt tripled under his watch, commensurate to GDP the debt increased, Black Monday in 1987, Savings and Loan Scandal, propelled America into a corporate welfare loving state)

In these rewrites came a myth perpetuated over time, primarily at outlets like Fox "News", that his Presidency matched that of true successful GOP Commanders in Chief, like Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower. Nothing could be more further from the truth.
Scott: "Ronald Reagan was the greatest President who gave us so many jobs."

Jason: "Why then were so many out of work in the initial years he was in office?"

Scott: "That was the evil Jimmy Carter's doing!"

Jason: "But unemployment rose from 1981 to 1982 when Carter no longer sat in the oval office. If tax cuts create jobs, like Reagan did in 1981 when furnishing breaks to millionaires, why did the jobless numbers escalate?"

Scott: "I guess it's Obama's fault then."

Jason: "Figures. And how do you defend his unconstitutional act of funding a violent group in South America known as the Contras? The Congress voted to forbid any financial aid be shoveled into their coffers."

Scott: "Whatever. Reagan still gave us hope."

Jason: "Yea, hope for a better President. We did get that in the form of someone from Hope, Arkansas, albeit four years after Reagan's stench departed The White House."

Scott: "He was impeached, though, over a blow job."

Jason: "Not nearly as bad as financing deadly groups in South America, defying a congressional order. Right?"
