Coralie Koonce: You forgot, he was the man who tried to have ketchup classified as a vegetable for the school lunch program. His administration ignored Aids, Apartheid, involved the military in little interventions in Central America, Columbia, Africa. Accidently shot down an Iranian civilian airliner killing over 200 people. Oh, lets not forget the White House Astrologer. I got to meet the man in Hawaii, I was part of a security detail, he looked lost and Nancy had the aids scared @#&^less.

So what does Reagan have to do with O'Bama? Is this one of those "nanny nanny nu nu put your hands in poo-poo" letters? Even if everything you say is true, would that excuse O'bama from any incompetence or abuse of power he might do? Rather than debunk arguments against your president, you just point to someone else and say, "Well he (and wife) were worse, so we don't have to do any better!"; but that's not what O'bama promised if people would vote for him. Alternatively, has O'Bama become the athiest, Marxist, or leftist god (Ubermensch)? If so, that would make you one among the slave masses (Untermensch) whose only role in life is to serve him. Is this a case of "cognitive dissonance" so often referenced in these posts? For myself, I tend to be most critical of those I vote for since I feel myself responsible for outcomes that I have at least some control over; to correct error in outcomes, perhaps I may only be able to recognize that I misjudged, sad and disappointed, and change my mind determined to do better next time.

For example, if I trust my teen with the keys to the truck, then by happenstance I catch him "yard-farming" or leaving half the tire tred on the pavement with radio blasting, I take away the keys until he has learned of better ways to demonstrate and prove to himself his alpha-male status. No point in yelling; just take the keys and demonstrate that behavior has consequences. He may even have to buy tires to get keys back or go level ground and plant grass in the hot sun. You know, it seems to me that if nothing better is expected, nothing better will happen!

Thanks, Coralie -- the folks who vote Republican seem to have very selective memories about their "God" Ronald Reagan.
