“These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers.” — Ronald Regan while introducing the Mujahideen leaders to media on the White house lawns (1985).
I’ll blame it on being 8 and more tuned in to He-Man and The Ewoks cartoons, than politics at the time. I did study Reaganomics in college but still didn’t know about this happening. (It was actually Economics but my professor thought the sun rose and set out of Reagan’s ass) In the interest of fairness, I guess I could have researched what the face of the Taliban looked liked in 1985 before posting this. Maybe I’m missing the full picture here. Then I remembered their religion and decided to save myself the time. For those of you who already knew about this; Wow. For those just reading this for the first time like I am; Wow. I love history, or rather the recording of it. ~ Kim
Something else Reagan lovers conveniently forget is the uproar surrounding his comments about Nazi solders being victims after he laid a wreath at a cemetery that held the graves of 49 members of the Waffen-SS, an elite wing Hitler’s Nazi Party.

“In the House of Representatives, what have you guys been doing, John?” Obama continued, calling out Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio). “You’ve been debating a commemorative coin for baseball. You’ve had legislation reaffirming that ‘In God We Trust’ is our motto. That’s not putting people back to work”
A top Bank of America executive was caught on camera yesterday whispering to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), “Bank of America. We’ll help you out,” as the GOP presidential candidate attended New Hampshire’s Politics and Eggs breakfast. The executive has been identified by the financial website Zero Hedge as James Mahoney, Director of Public Policy for the bank. Mahoney is on the board of directors for the New England Council, the sponsors of the Politics and Eggs breakfast.
Over the years Gov. Perry has benefited greatly from Bank of America’s financial support, and it appears that largesse will continue as he seeks the presidency on a platform of — coincidentally enough — bank deregulation. His gubernatorial campaigns have received $125,900 from Bank of America’s PAC and executives since 2003. During the 2010 cycle alone, Perry’s campaign received $30,160 from the bank’s PAC and executives. According to Texans for Public Justice, Bank of America has also given generously Republican Governors Association, which Perry led until recently and just happens to be his largest donor, contributing $4 million between 2001 and 2010.
Oh, I’m sure they’ll help him out just fine. Let’s not forget, some of Obama’s biggest donors also were from the financial sector/Wall St.
