You certainly could use that argument. If it were only true.

Reagan turned the Economy upside down. Some of it remains today. I believe you have your history twisted again on the Reagan era and who it helped. Banks collapsed, People were thrown out of jobs, but Bush had to bear the blame.
Ronald Reagan's policies resulted in the largest peacetime economic boom in American history and nearly 35 million more jobs. As the Joint Economic Committee reported in April 2000:

In 1981, newly elected President Ronald Reagan refocused fiscal policy on the long run. He proposed, and Congress passed, sharp cuts in marginal tax rates. The cuts increased incentives to work and stimulated growth. These were funda-mental policy changes that provided the foundation for the Great Expansion that began in December 1982.

Orlando Sentinel
February 1988

Now, if in the past seven years Congress had accepted Reagan's budgets -- appropriated what he recommended, cut what he recommended, eliminated what he recommended, then certainly whatever deficits accrued properly would be the responsibility of the president.

In fact, however, Congress has not once adopted the president's budget proposals. It has tossed his into the trash can and created its own. Therefore, the responsibility for the cumulative deficits rests squarely on the shoulders of the House and Senate majorities that passed them.

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1988-02-1...

Now here's the clincher...you better sit down...

Reagan's Congress throughout his administration from 1981 to 1989 was dominated by Democrats in the Senate and Republicans in the House. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't a budget proposed by a president have to pass in the Senate?

I have to make a correction from before. The Democrats had the majority in the House during the entire Reagan administration, not the Senate.

97th Congress (1981-1983)
Senate: 53(R); 46(D); 1(other)
House: 242(D); 189(R)

98th Congress (1983-1985)
Senate: 54(R); 46(D)
House: 268(D); 167(R)

99th Congress (1985-1987)
Senate: 53(R); 47 (D)
House: 253 (D); 182(R)

100th Congress (1987-1989)
Senate: 55(D); 45(R)
House: 258 (D); 177 (R)

Still doesn't change the reality pointed out by the Orlando Sentinel. Here's why...

From the LA Times:

WASHINGTON President Reagan on Saturday served notice on Congress that he is ready to veto stopgap budget legislation for the 1987 fiscal year that starts Wednesday if it includes policy proposals and "wasteful boondoggles" that are part of a "spending-spree bill" passed by the Democratic-controlled House.

I'm not done yet. Just want to post this before I leave.

DUBAI - Iran said on Tuesday it had successfully tested medium-range missiles capable of hitting Israel as a response to threats of attack, the latest move in a war of nerves with the West.

Israel says it could attack Iran if diplomacy fails to secure a halt to its disputed nuclear energy program. The United States also has military force as a possible option but has repeatedly encouraged the Israelis to be patient while new economic sanctions are implemented against Iran.

Reagan was a great MAN
He was a Great president
he did fuck up by signing the amnesty law instead of veto it

but at least he later admitted it was the biggest mistake he ever made.

Clinton was one of the Worst Ever Presidents tied with Jimmy Carter
Only good speech I ever saw from him and also the only thing i will ever admire about him was that he went on national TV and Admitted
that he screwed up by listening to Neville Chamberlin I mean Prime Minister Major when they told him Yugoslavia was a "European Problem" and the would handle it......
Clinton Admitted the Europeans were retards and that because he didn't act for almost 2 years that 250,000 people had been rounded up and executed (mini-holocaust style) and that it was his fault.
He then went on to explain that America would intervene to stop the mini-holocaust

This was from a total loser President- but he shined during this
by admitting he was wrong and by doing something to fix it
he Actually showed True leadership during that Crisis

when have you seen Obaama take responsibility for ANYTHING Negative ?

when have you seen Obaama show leadership ?

anyway since LBJ-Now Best Pres = Reagan Worst = Obama
