    Betty Ford was pro-ERA and pro-abortion - the sort of "republican" the lib media loves. She didn't do anything much in her life but found a drunk tank in palm desert.

    By contrast, a couple years ago William F. Buckley died - he was founder of the modern american conservative movement, the intellect behind the political views of at least half of americans. You would have missed the scant lib media coverage if you blinked.

    He sounds like a real bore. I mean what did he do for America? Seems he was some RW nutjob.

    Betty Ford left a legacy.

    She changed people's lives. Improved them even.

    You get that?

    She turned into a druggie and a drunk because she was upset that her husband lost the presidential race to a cracker peanut farmer. :lmao:

    Whoops.

    Looks like the "mainstream media" gave plenty of coverage to William F. Buckley's death:

    :lol: I just googled "green turds" and got a million hits. The number of such hits is meaningless. TV media virtually ignored him. Their were no TV retrospectives, something that OBVIOUSLY should have done for someone of his stature.

    It's rather amusing watching you brag about being an utter ignoramus.

    But back to Betty. She was her own person, and much admired for that. She did a great deal for cancer awareness by publicizing her own battle with it. It says a great deal about you that you just can't say RIP instead of virtually spitting on her grave.

    Thousands of people who would have died of alcohol and drug abuse are alive because of Betty Ford. I'm not understanding how you're making a partisan issue about it.
