Every president has been named Time's Man Of The Year since they started the yearly feature.

Silly anonymous, this isn't an exercise in award announcement. It's just a beautiful representation of a great president.

To ask if the wonderful picture of "The Ronald" is like Kryptonite to our friends on the Left would imply that they are Superman, or the like.

I prefer to think it is more like water to the WW of the West.

Good point, E.B.

I do believe it is garlic to the Democrats...

Goven that his administration ran one of the most illegal and immoral operations of the last several decades and that the only defence for the president is that he was too incompetent to notice I have a hard time considering him a "great" president.

Really when you take away the things he's given credit for that either never worked or had nothing to do with him or were far too risky gambles you are left with a hollow shell of a presidency.

He was however a great "feel good" guy. Pity that's enough to be one of the best republican presidents these days.

What, by chance, are you implying? What was Clinton's major accomplishments, aside from adding new sexual vocabulary to our general lexicon and boosting cigar sales?

Clinton's presidency was overall a time of peace and prosperity. I certainly wouldn't call Clinton a great president but his 8 years far outshine Ronnies. Clinton did some really crappy things (missiling the sudan pharmaceutical company, continuing our policies in Iraq, et cetera) but nothing on the scale of the atrocities of Reagan's years. In other words his highs were higher and his lows not as bad. And like I said Clinton is still a long ways from what I'd call a great president.

And all this time I thought that Tlaloc and the similarly-minded were complaining about the PRESENT administration. Man, I'm so confused...

Don't worry, Jack, we do that too. Isn't anyone else worried that President Bush's role model is a doddering old man who talked about the end of the world too much?

I liked "Santa Fe Trail" as much as the next guy, but come on.
