- Ronald Regan presidency?
- Q: was listening to an old episode of the radio show Loveline, which was recorded the day after Ronald Regan died. Adam and Drew (the hosts) were saying that, its surprising that Regan is being regarded as such a hero and great president, because his presidency sort of mirrors Bush's presidency in that Regan was highly criticized, even being called an idiot and the worst president and stuff. I know that right after a president dies, there not exactly gonna say bad things about him, but you know.My question is do you think 20 years from know Bush will be considered a great president? Also, for those of you living through the Regan presidency: How was he regarded by the public and the media?
- A: Reagan was not as good as some think he was. He had a good gift of gab and charisma that enabled him to shovel BS and so many would believe him. He was a cheer leader at a time we really needed one. His economic policy was one of the worst ever but his foreign policy was only okay. He out spent the Soviet Union in military spending. He was an opportunist. Itelligence, for example, informed him of problems within the Soviet block and particularly in East Germany. As a result he went to Berlin and told Gorbechev to tear down the wall. Believe me, if Gorby wanted the wall up it would have remained up and orders from Reagan would have made absolutely no difference. People give Reagan for credit for much he was not responsible for. Then there was the Iran/Contra affair. Reagan claimed to know nothing about it but evidence has surfaced that proves that he and Vice President George HW Bush did know about it and had a hand in it. Reagan was no great president but he wasn't terrible either. He was mediocre. George W. Bush is and will in 20 years still be the worst president ever. This comes from one who is an expert on the presidency.

- A: This reminds me a lot about the Iran hostage situation in 1979-80, when Carter was in office and Reagan was about to be elected. ***See note below where I suggest this is from a past life you might have had.Iran held 52 American hostages for 444 days, taken from the US embassy. President Carter at the time was furiously trying to find a way to get the hostages back, presumably so it could help his chances of getting reelected. The rescue attempt was to be done with five helicopters. However, three of the five whirly-birds malfunctioned, and as one was being refueled in the air, it crashed into the refueling plane and fell to the ground, killing all eight American service members aboard. The mission had to be aborted. This of course hurt Carter's chances and Ronald Reagan defeated him in the 1980 election. As it turned out, the hostages were freed just a *minutes* after Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president."Despite losing the November 1980 presidential election to Ronald Reagan, President Jimmy Carter, in the final days of his office, negotiated the release of the hostages through Secretary of State Warren Christopher, Algerian intermediaries and members of the Iranian government.""On January 20, 1981, minutes after Reagan was sworn in as President, the hostages were formally released into U.S. custody, having spent 444 days in captivity. The hostages were flown to Algeria as a symbolic gesture for the help of that government in resolving the crisis."Here go the summarized details of the rescue attempt: The Iran hostage crisis began November 4, 1979, when a mob of Iranians seized the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking a large group of employees hostage. Eleven months earlier, a revolution led by the Islamic fundamentalist Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini had overthrown Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the shah of Iran.Relations between the two countries had been strained since that time, as Iran's new leaders denounced the United States for its longtime support of the shah. When the exiled shah entered the United States in October for medical care, many Iranians feared a repetition of the U.S.-assisted coup that had put the shah on the throne in 1953. The hostage taking followed.Nineteen hostages were released within a few weeks; the remaining fifty-two were held for 444 days. When it became clear that the Iranian government was not going to resolve the problem, President Jimmy Carter moved to freeze Iranian assets, both in the United States and abroad. Diplomatic efforts were launched through the United Nations and various private intermediaries, but by March 1980 it had become clear that none of the rival political groups in Iran was willing to risk the unpopularity of letting the hostages go. ****This impasse led Carter to order a rescue effort by helicopter, but three of the eight helicopters failed before reaching Tehran, and the mission had to be aborted. Eight men died in the operation.****News of the failure aggravated the American public's mounting frustration over the crisis, providing a focus for broader criticism of Carter's administration (sharpened by the fact that this was an election year) as well as more general distress over America's waning ability to control world events. These issues undoubtedly contributed to Carter's defeat by Ronald Reagan in November. Nevertheless, by then a new Iranian government had been formed, and serious negotiations began soon after, with Algeria as mediator. The United States agreed to unfreeze most Iranian assets in exchange for the hostages. Finally, on January 20, 1981 - only a few hours after Carter left office - all fifty-two hostages were released and landed safely in West Germany.***This seems to me like a vision from a past life. Perhaps you were one of the American soldiers in the ill-fated helicopter that crashed into the refueling plane. The vision of seeing other helicopters falling is probably the frustration the soldier had of seeing the other two helicopters malfunctioning--and the whole mission going haywire.
