  • One of the worst . He should have been impeached for the IranContra affair which was and still is a national disgrace . The end of the Cold War had nothing to do with Reagan , he just happened to be in office when the old regime in the Soviet Union collapsed .

    I agree. I was in my 40's when he was President and I paid attention. But most of these younger Moms only know him as a guy with a great smile who looked great sitting on his horse and they have NO CLUE!!!! No clue at al .
    He was a toady and he paid attention to Nancy and the Horoscopes for decision making. Wonderful, huh?Yes, Irangate, the Iran Contra scandal was a disaster and he was called "The Teflon President" because nothing stuck to him! He avoided being prosecuted because he was such a "nice guy". Yah,right.
    A real disappointment that he was able to snow so many people and they are still clueless.

  • he was great....i was a little girl at that time but every time the president came on tv you knew it was very very important. but it was different times. he was a good president and he did alot of things he said he would...the president is not invincible and no president is perfect. but you have to know how to lead.
