42. I still have my Impeach Reagan button somewhere. Actors, and TV personalities, make

terrible Presidents. Boy, he sure fooled so many gullible voters with his Aw shucks manners. But ANYONE who had payed attention to what he did as Governor of California knew he'd be awful as President.

We just didn't know how awful:

_Sent National Guard to UC Berkeley campus (People's Park)
_On first day in office, lied that HE, not Carter, secured the release of hostages from Iran
_As new President, took down solar panels on WH and ended alternative energy incentives
_Supply Side economics
_Tax cuts for rich, eliminated middle class tax breaks
_1982 Recession
_Sent weapons to Iraq, Saddam Hussein
_Invaded Grenada as a distraction
_busted unions like the Air Traffic Controllers
_Funded Star Wars nonsense
_Iran Contra scandal - arms for hostages
_Reignighted Cold War with USSR
_Supported the Mujahideen (Osama bin Laden)
_Supported dictators like Noriega, Hussein, Marcos, El Salvadore regime...
_"Trees polute more than automobiles"
_138 Reagon officials indicted, or convicted of crimes
_Tripled National Debt
_Savings and Loans collapse
_Ignored the A.I.D.S. epidemic
_ etc. etc

And much more...that I have probably forgotten.
No, NOT a good President.
