    On June 15th, President Obama hosted a reception at the White House. While here, two Philadelphia activists took time out of their visit to take photos of themselves giving President Reagan the middle finger.

    This incident brings to light the unwarranted hate directed at President Reagan.

    The 1980s saw several historic accomplishments that can be credited to President Reagan. Yet, there is still so much disrespect from the Left toward the late president. President Reagan helped create 20 million jobs bringing the U.S. out of the deep recession of the Carter administration, and he also signed the largest tax cut in U.S. history that dropped the taxes 25 percent across the board.

    Reagan is not ranked as a successful president if you ask a college professor, but according to a recent Gallup poll, Americans vote him to be the "greatest president." Professors seem to forget about the fact that Reagan liberated 300 million from the oppressive Soviet Union and won the Cold War.

    He had a successful presidency that should be acknowledged with respect and dignity, not the middle finger.
