When it comes to the Economy People Prefer Conservatives like Ronald Reagan

Posted by PITHOCRATES - November 6th, 2011

Week in Review

Ronald Reagan is still leading the polls (see Poll: For economy fix, Americans pick Reagan over Roosevelt by The Daily Caller posted 10/31/2011 on Yahoo! News).

Ronald Reagan beat out Franklin Delano Roosevelt as the former president Americans would like to see in the White House during these trying economic times, a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll finds.

Thirty-six percent of those polled said they wanted the Gipper to lead America out of the economic crisis, while 29 percent picked Roosevelt.

No surprise here.  For Ronald Reagan’s economic recovery from the Jimmy Carter’s economic malaise set economic records.  Whereas FDR’s economic recovery required a world at war.  With some 416,800 U.S. deaths.  A pretty steep price to pay for an economic recovery.

Ronald Reagan didn’t need world war to end anti-business policies.  Like FDR.  That’s why conservatives are better when it comes to the economy.  They can fix messes.  Whereas the Democrats simply double down on bad policy.
