This is why the "powers that be"were comfortable with Reagan in the White House

I never liked Ronald Reagan and I couldn't understand how he got elected and how anyone could not fail to see through his obvious bullshit.

But he did have a world class promotion team working for him and he was a good, if "B Level", actor and I've become a little more understanding as I get older.

That said, if there is still anyone out there who thinks Ronald Reagan was anything but Satan's Spawn, please wake the you-know-what up.

Fox News and its owner Rupert Murdoch loves the guy and tries to present him as a statesmen.

He was nothing more or less than a mobbed up piece of self-propelled garbage and the front man for a band of thieves that in the last 43 years has run the country into the ground.
