PRESIDE T RONALD RE GA 11980-19810 With election time a proaching again, television and radio are filled with numerous advertisements, attempting to convey the successfulness or failure of the presidency of Ronald Wilson Reagan. Americans around the country have been watching the performance of the llGreat Communicator" for the last four years. No doubt his heart-warming, patriotic speeches made in public and on the air have captivated the hearts of Americans everywhere, lending to a sense of optimism not felt in our country for nearly ten years. However, with November less than a half a year away, now is the time for us to evaluate the Reagan Presidency objectively...to take a good look at the man's ac- complishments-to see if we can elect him as our nation's leader for the next four years. A poll taken by The New York Times in the last weeks of 1983 indicated that most of the persons interviewed felt their situation was better than it had been three years ago. Even among blacks and women, where Reagan's support is reported to be the weakest, the poll reported a much greater optimism about the future than was true three years ago. The continued economic recovery in 1983 no doubt played an important toll in the heightening of this optimism. The C-ross National Product increased about 62, the rate of inflation was checked at 3.22, in consumer goods, and America enjoyed a sharp drop in unemployment, 2.52, this year. However, as in years before the Reagan administra- tion high deficit spending continues to threaten the long-term stability of economic recovery. Regardless of whether the blame is placed on high military spending or on excessive Government-funded social programs, a change in the trends of one or the other or both of these areas is going to have to be made in order to continue the immediate economic situation so far enjoyed. However, the most fundamental challenge to any Administration is the capability of that administration to manage the relationship between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. On that relationship rests not only the national interests of both nations but also the peace and stability of the world. Reagan's moralistic public denounciations of the Soviet Union have not only increased the tensions between the two countries but also to unsettle the posture of allies in Western Europe and Asia. It can be said without argument that a change in the approach toward foreign policy is needed lest a confrontation take place between the two superpowers that would be utterly devastating. Overall, the domestic situation has definitely improved since Ronald Reagan took over the Oval Office. Certainly, the days look brighter since the days of limmy Carter, runaway inflation, and high unemployment. However, the foreign diplomacy of the Reagan administration has left much to be desired, not only in US-USSR relations but also in the Middle East Crisis. ln November, Americans will decide whether or not the re-election of Ronald W. Reagan will be for the better or for the worse.
