the-evil-conservative unfollowed me for like the 19th time

I wouldn’t say that it’s every time I challenge him on a claim, but it’s close to every time…

So, if anyone is looking for a Teabagger to shoot at, one that can’t shoot back, I suggest the-evil-conservative.

I was an extremely angry person for a while.

i’m still angry at the people who voted for Obama (and the RINOs/moderates).

I’m angry at the RINO conservatives — “No compromise!  Give us a candidate that’s so out of step with the mainstream that people laugh at him, or we’ll all stay home!” — and I’m angry at the liberal Democrats who oppose everything Obama has done, yet voted for him TWICE and defend some fictional character they pretend is Obama…

"Obama closed GITMO, didn’t sign the cuts to food stamps program, refused to renew & expand Bush’s tax cuts, got us to stop meddling in places like Libya, Syria (etc)…"

Winston Churchill was an idiot. You’re following an idiot. In many ways he was the physical embodiment of today’s conservative moment:  Great on rhetoric, but delivering one disaster after another.
Churchill’s Colossal Blunders
And Buchanan misses quite a few there. Gallipoli during the First World War, where he slaughtered thousands of his own troops for example. His meddling in Singapore’s defenses was a disaster and his meddling in north Africa literally snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. And of course, the Norwegian campaign was another blunder that can be attributed to Churchill. And Greece.

Reagan was a disaster for America

the-evil-conservative:

To summarize for you, during the first four years of Clinton’s Presidency, GDP averaged 3.2% growth. Disappointing numbers for an economy following the 1991 recovery and the reduction in consumer price inflation.

Reagan’s first term saw the worst recession in America since the Great Depression.  As for the rest of his term:

During Ronald Reagan’s presidency, the wealthiest one-fifth of American households (those who naturally owned the most stock) saw their incomes increase by 14%. Meanwhile, the poorest one-fifth (who presumably owned no stock) endured an income decline of 24%, while the incomes of the middle three-fifths of American families stayed more or less flat.

Poverty GREW under Reagan, it shrunk under Clinton.  And, again, you’re focused like a laser beam on “Economic Growth” when that’s never been the goal.  The goal is prosperity for all, and wages grew EVERY YEAR under Clinton.

the-evil-conservative:
Actually Reaganomics was massively successful in the 1980s. 
Clinton easily surpassed Reagan.  In fact, Clinton left him in the dust.  There was more growth, the stock markets did light years better, poverty shrunk, wages grew every year and the share of the nation’s wealth in the hands of the “Bottom” 80% grew against the 1%.
Oh.  And Clinton did it with raising taxes.
So even if you guzzled so much Kool-Aid that you actually believe Reagan did a good job, why the hell wouldn’t you support Clinton even more, seeing how he did a much better job?
You’re a partisan and like all partisan you don’t give a shit about the country, the people and not even yourself.  You’re fighting to destroy your own future just so “Your Side” can “Win”… win… what the hell is it you think you’re going to win?
Never mind.  The answer wouldn’t make any sense.
