    Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan

    he’d would have been 99 today

    TIP:
    Shot in the Dark


    Reagan is a great conservative hero for what he wasn’t as well as for what he was. In an era when people thought the entree to political leadership was a degree from an elite university and a lifetime spent currying favor and working within the establishment, Reagan was a small-town midwesterner who’d gone to an obscure college and spent most of his adult life doing other things; a sportscaster, an actor, a pundit. He was well into middle age before he got into electoral politics.

    This confounded his critics, who believed that the true measure of a 50-something man of accomplishment was a degree he’d gotten when he was 22.

    He was, in short, pretty much like the rest of us – as Dinesh D’Souza noted, an ordinary man who became an extraordinary president.

    Strange how the words below still ring true for today
    Funny how that works

    Its getting to that point where we will just ignore you guys. You may think that all this venom affects us but we understand not everyone loves each other.

    Have a nice day.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Reagan. Thank you for priming our nation for the success of the 90s, and defeating the Soviet Union. The Russian people believe you were a very strong leader, I agree.

    Wow LAUGHABLE hero worship. Reagans "TRICKLE DOWN" economic tricks led to the middle class losing out BIG TIME!
