The right wingers are posting all kinds of stuff about how Obama is weak on Terrorism and Ronald Reagan was strong.
Ronald Reagan would never put up with this terrorism like Obama is……Ronald Reagan was a tough guy…….
The right wingers who post this nonsense obviously don’t know anything about the Ronald Reagan record. So (once again) let me help with quick history lesson. Get your notebooks out.

In the middle of all this terrorism President Ronald Reagan (tough guy) attempted to trade arms to Iran for Hostages. 1) That was illegal. 2) Reagan said he would NEVER negotiate with terrorists. Reagan lied.
