Why was Reagen the Teflon president?
Because the scandals that affected his administration never really stuck to him, such as the Iran-Contra affair and corruption in the Environmental Protection Agency and the Housing & Urban Development Agency.
Ronald Reagen had to do with tearing down the Berlin Wall. He as well helped the American economy, as it was dreadful before Reagen went into office. Then he forced the Soviet Union to go down and ended communism. Long story short, he was one of the best presidents USA ever had. And we owe our government being so good in the 80's to him.
