In the question of which president do you admire most many answered reagan. I was wondering why. I will give that he had a great positive outlook and charisma, he was an actor after all. But what did he do that was so great? I don't buy that he single handedly ended the cold war, from what I know of history and econ the USSR was doomed to fail no matter what. St Ronny may have made some decisions that helped it along but it was really more of a being in the right place at the right time kind of thing. He completely ignored the beginning of the AIDS epidemic because it was a "gay disease". He had the highest number of convicted cabinet members, privatized and deregulated us. Brought us Iran/Contra, left us with defecits and a recession. Spent billions on his star wars that never worked. Nancy had "Just say no" with a coked out Drew Barrymore for spokesperson.Answer Question

What did he do to get the Iran hostages back? They were released right after his inauguration so what could he have possible had time to do. Unless he was behind them being held for so long to help make Carter look bad and ensure his own victory.

You say he was a true conservative but I thought cons were for smaller govt, less interference. The Reagans spearheaded the War on Drugs which is definitely NOT a coservative idea.
What did he do to improve black employment?
