President Reagan presented congress with a package that contained both tax cuts and the corresponding budget cuts. I don't remember the reason but the democrats wanted to pass the tax cuts first and then promise to pass the budget cuts. As today the did not live up to their promise. After the tax cuts became law. The democrats failed to live up to their promise and did not pass the corresponding budget cuts. That is why the deficit increased during the Reagan administration. Read your history.

I liked Reagan, but anyone pretending some of his policies didn't produce regrettable consequences isn't really paying attention.

-------------------------------------- Reagan was no friend of anyone earning less than $250K/yr.
With the exception of the collapse of the Soviet empire, his was strictly a smoke and mirrors job to systematically destroy the social programs of the previous 50 years while expanding the national debt.

You're a liar, too. When we were looking at our first house we were looking at an >18% mortgage. By the time we closed (later that summer) it was down to 14% and within two years under 10%. *THAT* was Reagan finally getting the reigns on the last hopey-changey thing; Carterism.

Good, and he certainly wasn't alone.

That is an absolute incorrect statement. I had just gotten out of college and entered my first job when his tax cuts started to take effect (they were phased in). I saw a significant increase in my take-home pay thanks to those cuts and I wasn't making 1/10 of $250k per year.

The collapse of the USSR being attributed to Reagan was more smoke and mirrors. He was sitting in the chair, and working towards that collapse, but much of the work was done before he even finished his last B movie.

You might investigate Glenn Beck's past history before you accept his having your best interest at heart. Here's a good place to start:

I don't care who's interest he has in his heart. I only care what information he passes on to the unwashed masses via video and sound clips and written text of the socialist/communist bastards that surround the current president of the USSA. His past history doesn't matter, the color of his skin doesn't matter, his sexual orientation doesn't matter, how his mother died doesn't matter.
Here's a good place to start:

I read some of the first part of it and found it extremely boring. I'd rather just listen and watch him, and see if I find him useful and interesting. So far, he is doing great!
For example, did I know Van Jones was a self-avowed Communist bastard? Nope. Did I know ACORN was a left-wing, corrupt socialist/democratic organization that illegally uses tax payers money to fund only Democratic voter fraud, and then some? Nope, didn't even know ACORN existed. Did I know about the anti-American socialist bastards Cloward and Piven and their socialist agenda to break the US by spending it to death? Nope. Did I know the philosopher Anita Dunn turns to most was the mass murderer communist bastard MAO? Nope!
I could go on all day with the stuff Beck has brought to light, vividly and expertly with sound, video and text of the socialists that are now controlling the USA. None of this stuff was brought to light by the government controlled media either, none of it, and none of it has been shown to be false.
Thank you Glenn Beck.

Lets see, is my mind closed because I went to your link and found it incredibly boring, or because rather than simply read someone else's opinions, I also go to the source and see and hear for myself? Perhaps if I locked Beck off my TV I'd have an opened mind, you know, like your buddy Robocop...
BTW, the link you posted was well written, I'm just not interested in the least about Becks past, where he grew up, what his parents were like and so on... I'm only interested in the info he brings me that the left wing media completely ignores, over and over and over.

I cannot imagine anyone missing her or Beck. In fact I can't figure out why either one of them have reached the level of prominence they have reached. -============================================ In a word: Liberals. Were it not for Liberals, they would be local to Cincinnati. If you need to know what either of them has said, ask a Liberal. If you need to know where they or Palin are appearing, wait a while and a Liberal will volunteer the information.

Agreed. What should have happened is the 1000 that wanted to hear what she had to say should have stomped the shit out of the 100 that didn't. Too many ball-less wonders up there.

According to one of the organizers there were 2000 protesters. Does that mean they should have beat the crap out of Coulter and the people that came to see her?
Besides, what makes you think that all the people that came to see her actually support her views? The London audience didn't seem all that friendly.
