Was Ronald Reagan the greatest president of the 20th century?

  • Well no duh...

    Of course he was! The only "arguments" against Reagan are nonsensical liberal talking points, silly myths like "trickle down" and that ilk. Reagan is most definitely the LAST great president we've had thus far, by a mile. Slick WIllie was only good for saving his own bacon by moving from the left to the center after getting shellacked in '94. The Bushes are worthless, and Obama doesn't even register on any positive chart.

  • Top three of all time and greatest of the 20th century.

    Ronald Reagan is responsible for saving us from the early 80's recession, he is the reason there is still a US instead of a bomb crater, and to all the liberals saying that he wasn't progressive enough obviously don't know that he nominated the first ever female Supreme Court justice.

  • He is 3rd best ever, only behind Washington and Lincoln

    He won a nuclear war with the Soviets without firing a shot. No other President in history can claim that, with our country, and the entire world facing total annihilation, his polities defeated a nuclear nation intent on dominating the world. Even Roosevelt never really faced the same threat. Just as important was his economic policy of limited govt. Lower taxes, that produced 7 percent GDP growth and massive new jobs. Even with the lower tax rates, the 7 percent growth lead to a doubling of revenues to the fed govt. The problem was that even though revenues doubled, spending tripled. I don't blame Reagan for that, it was Congress going on a spending frenzy. So for those two primary reasons, 1, wining a nuclear war and 2. Producing 7 percent gdp growth, Reagan is the best of the 20th century and 3rd all time.

  • Great on many fronts

    As bad as Iran-Contra, his focus on AIDs, and his Lebanon policies were, Reagan still pulled it off. He helped end the Cold War by attacking Grenada, supporting Afghanistan, and bankrupting the Soviets. Then he attacked Libya (nearly killing Gaddafi). He also did the Star Wars program, and intensified the war on drugs and started the Mexico City Policy. Finally, Reagonomics managed the economy rather well, although results were mixed.

  • Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the 20th century.

    Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the 20th century. I think that he was the greatest because while he was in office he focused primarily on the public and how he could help the average American. He did not have any of the inner office politics that they do today and he did the best job that he could do.

  • A city on a hill.

    Yes, Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the 20th century, because he is the only president who actually took affirmative steps to shrink the size of the government. In Reagan's day, the economy expanded like it never had before. People had hope. He was also a good leader that everyone liked.

  • Because of Reagan the United States is the only country to have been convicted of Terrorism by the World Court

    Reagan support for brutal military dictators cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of Latin American lives. He supported totalitarian regimes instead of semi liberal governments that made lives decent in the developing world. Reagan only created corporate loops holes and ended up raises taxes on the middle and lower classes, and tripled the national deficit. He escalated the War on Drugs and is now responsible for the most racists domestic policy in American History since jim crow. He vetoed the embargo against south Africa despite the apahrtide. He was able to create a persona of charisma and patriotism but was a terribel president when the facts are examined

  • Reagan should have been impeached!

    Best president? When I saw this poll I nearly laughed. How could you say that halfwit was anything other than the dumbest modern president till George W. Bush? He destroyed corporate regulations, smashed labor unions, and did all he could to annihilate welfare. After that idiot and Bush no.1, thank God for Bill Clinton.

  • No, he was terrible.

    Ronald Reagan was a terrible president, and surely not the best one of the 20th century. That's like asking if a McDonald's hamburger is the greatest cuisine in New York City. Ronald Reagan sent the United States in a financially unstable direction and is directly responsible for the income equality we see today.

  • No Ronald Reagan was not the greatest president of the 20th century

    There are many of Reagan's policies, that today are negatively impacting society. He was not the greatest president because many elders do not speak highly of him. Additionally, there are a lot of jokes and humor that have risen in light of Reagan's policies. I think Bill Clinton has been the greatest president thus far as he attempted to tackle large issues such as welfare reform and health care reform. Reagan's policies did not address a lot of the issues that America is dealing with now today.
