    Carter was a sell out that had people paying double digit interest rates and outrageous taxes. He also didn't have the balls to get those American hostages back.

    Wow you are clever....yes in about 20 years (50 years was just a rough number) we will know for sure where Carter stands. However, since it has been almost 30 years since he was in office we have a better idea where he will stand compared to the other presidents in history.

    You are not getting the big picture here the main point I am making is that it is too soon to know where Bush will stand and how he will be remembered especially since he is still in office.

    By the time 30 years is up, more information will have come out that will show that he and Cheney were the most corrupt leaders in modern history.

    As of now, most of us suspect it but due to their efforts to cover-up, we can't just prove it all at this time.

    Reagan claimed Bin Laden and company were freedom fighters. How will you Chance explain that if you will? Isn't now the time to declare those Reagan comments garbage? Nobody seems to bring up this particular issue. Even older Rambo movies are no longer running.

    The sad thing about their message is that they are harkening back 20-30 years while their opponents are talking about the future.

    America will NOT elect a 70 something Washington insider who talks about the 1980's. They don't have a message of hope or change and that is why they want to attack Obama in particular as a guy without a specific plan as if copying Reagan from the 80's is a specific plan for McCain.

    It's laughable.

    There was more than once group fighting over there during the Soviet occupation. In fact it was proven that the US never supplied Bin Laden with money or weapons. So when Reagan was said the fighters were freedom fighters did he say Bin Laden and his group were freedom fighters or did he generalize. If so please find a quote where he did say specifically that Bin Laden was a freedom fighter and I will apologize and call those comments garbage.

    Now it is one thing to knock on Reagan but please don't knock on Rambo movies...lol

    Americans aren't looking back past Sept 11 2001. Who cares what any president did or didn't do prior to Bush.

    There are way more pressing issues going forward.

    Are you serious? I agree there are a lot of pressing issues going forward like the economy and immigration but you need to know the past. You have to learn the lessons from the past so you can attempt to duplicate successes and learn from the mistakes.
