Ronald Reagan = one the BEST presidents ever. President Reagan understood the dynamics of one's wallet better than any president before or after his presidency. He understood what it took to get the economy moving again - and to restore the American dream. His ability to restore the nations sense of optimism and pride was one of his biggest achievements.
Peace thru strength was his best acheivement.
President Ronald Reagan did more - single handedly - to end communism as we knew it - ended the USSR as a major world threat. He ended the cold war after over 40 years of unrelenting world wide tensions & fear.

His ever present sense of optimism brought the country back on track after the 16 long dreary years - 1964-1980 - following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He ended the pessimism generated by the years of Vietnam & Watergate & Stagflation.
Ronald Reagan represented the American dream - from his humble boyhood beginnings in Dixon, IL. to Hollywood, CA. and to the White House in Washington, DC. He lived the American dream - can do.

If you are on the right, Reagan is God.
If you are on the left, Reagan is Satan.
"Reagan was the greatest president ever, except for Bush." - (R)
"Reagan was the worst president ever, except for Bush." - (D)
a pagan god who is worshipped by many members of the Republican party
Ronald Reagan supported huge tax cuts for the super rich combined with massive increases in military spending mostly for boondoggles like his "starwars" missile defense plan that never worked. This sent our national debt into the trillions. Reagan was known for busting up labor unions and other anti-worker policies that drove down wages while CEO salaries soared. Some of Reagan's other accomplishments include creating the Taliban to fight off a Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and providing arms to Saddam Hussein during the Iraq-Iran war.
A President who negotiated with terrorists, illegally funded, armed and collaborated with the Iraqis in the Iran-Iraq War, funded a Latin American terrorist group then told the American people he did none of these things and when the truth came out he completely got away with all of it.
In return, he is seen as one of the greatest Presidents ever because of the surging economy regardless of the long-term impact to be had with the tripling of the national debt as well as his 'defeating' of the Soviet Union regardless of their financial failings since the 1960s and the social reform of the 1980s.
Bill Clinton was nearly impeached for lying about cheating on his wife. In comparison, Ronald Reagan got a mild slap on the wrist for funding nun-raping and village-destroying genocidal terrorists even after Congress passed legislation forbidding it and after telling the American people he did not do these things.
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.
See: complete fake and phony
It is a little known fact that in the early 1960's Ronald Reagan OPPOSED equal rights for African Americans.
1.) The second worst President of the USA, EVER! The first being GWB. For some reason he's the object of neo-cons' wet dreams.
2.) A nauseating conversation that always comes up during 2008 GOP Presidential Debates.
1.) Remember back when Saddam actually did have WMDs in the '80s, and gassed the Curds with them. Ronald Reagan was the guy who gave them to him. Ronald Reagan was also responsible for Iran Contra, the overrated POS should've been impeached over it.
2.) Last night during the GOP Presidential debate, McCain, Romney, and Huckabee all went in graphic detail on how they'd like to perform necrophiliac acts to Reagan's remains.
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 kil...
Probably the most overrated president in the history of America. His "trickle down" policies basically let the poor go to hell, while the privileged were allowed more privileges. Meanwhile, Reaganomics had a great success in raising national debt from $700 billion to $3 trillion.
He is given credit for ending the Cold War instead of the true heros like Gorbachev and to a lesser extent, Walesa. Communism was on its last legs anyway and the system was failing from within. Reagan didn't do much more than make a few nice, happy speeches.
The idea he supported freedom is a myth, shown by his support for brutal South American dictators which was/is glossed over. Reagan installed the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and propped up Saddam Hussein in Iraq despite the known atrocities. Later, the Republicans would do a HUGE U-turn on this, in their quest for oil.
And anyone who chooses shit like Donald Rumsfeld to work for them, can't be all that great.
Ronald Reagan: impressive facade, but mediocre presidency behind.
