Reagan had nothing to do with the breakup of the USSR. He did however ignore the burgeoning AIDS crisis and played a key role in bringing on was then the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression, the 1987 stock market crash, and the crippling S&L crisis.

Historical rewrite. In the eighties there was only a small fringe group of Democrats who were pro immigrants and that was tied to Reagan's clusterfuck policies in El Salvador. The big backers of immigration, illegal as well as legal, were conservative businessmen looking for cheap labor.

Reagan cur taxes in 1981. He then cancelled the final third of those cuts in 1982 as part of the largest peacetime tax increase in US history. Then he enacted further tax increases in 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987.

In the end of Reagan's term he had re-broke the economy and left it for Bush to raise taxes and get blamed for what Reagan had created. The raising of taxes by Bush allowed Clinton to take the credit for improving the economy that Bush started by raising taxes and starting towards balancing the budget.

The absurd deficits run by Reagan and Bush-41 were what made Gramm-Rudman necessary. Clinton played by the rules which is how he had four budget surpluses in a row, but as soon as Bush-43 and the GOP took over, the wheels came off the cart again.

The Reagan presidency was a great time to be alive and be an American. He was the smartest and kindest gentleman. And he loved the USA. Incredible sense of humor and humility.

He was too nice really and let the Dems steamroll him too much. But he turned the economy around and gave American’s confidence again. Even Jimmy Carter said American’s were having a “Crisis of Confidence” in his infamous “Malaise” speech.

People seem to forget what an incredible loser and awful President Carter was. Double digit unemployment and interest rates.

Reagan single-handedly ended the Cold War and broke-up the despotic Soviet Union. The left in the US never forgave him for that. They loved Russians back then.

1. Who helped the mujahideen?
2. bin Laden was a bit player in Afghanistan. His participation and influence there is greatly overstated.

Obama was an intellectual lightweight who read from a teleprompter. Whenever he went off teleprompter he was a stuttering fool. YouTube has 100s of examples of that. Reagan was a genius who wrote most of his speeches.

You mean a ‘stable genius’ who wrote all the speeches that Peggy Noonan. Pat Buchanan, and a dozen others didn’t.

You are a typical uneducated fool that knows nothing. Sure Reagan used speechwriters for the mundane daily grind of speechwriting. But for the important stuff he wrote a large percentage of his speeches. I've been to the Reagan library. Since you can't - read this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Reagan-His-Own-Hand-Revolutionary/dp/0743219384

William Safire The New York Times Magazine: These handwritten documents prove that the original revolutionary was Ronald Reagan. We are struck by the workings of one man's mind expressed through a pen in his hand.

Lou Cannon The Washington Post: Reagan, In His Own Hand makes mincemeat of the idea that Reagan was a dunce. Many of these speeches are those of a visionary who saw around the bend in the road of history.

Michael Beschloss The New York Times: Ronald Reagan's private papers may show us that the Great Communicator was a better writer and thinker than even his fans understood.

In the main, no different from any other President. Except perhaps that neither he nor his any of his many speech writers managed to come up with the word ‘AIDS’ during his first term. Just ignored a growing plague until Nancy’s close friend Rock Hudson died.

All in all, Reagan was in the conversation for worst post-WWII President until Bush43 and then of course Trump came along.

As they say, opinions are like assholes...

Reagan only ended the cold war and saved the world from nuclear annihilation. No one is perfect i guess.

Only a reflexively anti-american communist would make such a statement. Reagan's biggest mistake was in fact border related. That stupid amnesty where he went along with the democrats.
