Why do you keep on insisting Ron Reagan is a far left liberal loon?
Who else close to Reagan is saying this? Name just one person. Anyone.
You're confused again. Must be your alzheimers.

You call Ron a liberal lon and blame me?? You really are whacked, desperate!!

Then there's this:

"Over the years, White House reporters often wondered about Reagan's alertness, especially toward the end of his second term. At times, he paused and appeared to look into the distance as he formulated answers to questions or responded to situations. Journalists were unsure whether it was part of his hearing impairment or something else. When asked a question that he could not or would not answer, Reagan would sometimes say, "they [his staff] haven't told me what I'm doing yet."


At a photo-op, reporters asked about the perceived the lack of progress on arms control talks with the Soviet Union. As the president pondered the query, Nancy Reagan whispered, "Doing the best we can." Taking the cue, Ronald Reagan repeated, "We're doing the best we can."

Reagan also once mistook his housing secretary Samuel R. Pierce Jr. for a city mayor. "Hello Mr. Mayor," he said to the only cabinet secretary to serve through both Reagan terms.


Several years after Reagan left office, I asked a former White House staffer who frequently saw the president if he (Reagan) always recognized him. The man said, "He knew my face and he knew my name but not always at the same time."


Physicians diagnosed Reagan with Alzheimer's approximately five years after he left office but the date of the onset will likely be pondered by political historians and medical experts for years to come.""

Hate to burst your bubble, Lorac.

You're as dead wrong on this as you were on Terri Schiavo. LOL

Ron Reagan is a far left liberal loon.
He isn't even invited as a guest on liberal commentator shows anymore.
Guess he had to get revenge after losing his 15 minutes of fame by writing that book.
Reagan's other son, Michael, completely contradicts that book.
So it's Reagan's far left liberal loon son's word - who has done everything possible to disrespect and dishonor his dead father's legacy - against his other son's word, the ideal son, who has done
everything possible to respect and honor his dead father's legacy.
I pick Michael. You can have the loon. Nobody else wants him.
(By the way, it would leave a bad taste in my mouth if Amy Carter wrote a book destroying her father's character after his death too. And I don't even like Carter. It's just bad form.)
so was his dad, Ronald Reagan and he called it conservatism.

Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style
K. Alan Snyder - 08/20/08

Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself “a New Dealer to the core.” He summarized his views in this way:“I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didn’t trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasn’t enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine.” When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded “he was just spouting Republican propaganda.”

Republicans Miss the Point on 'Fiscal Cliff' Debate
In this environment, the president has proposed a policy that addresses a perceived level of unfairness in the nation's economic arrangements. Whether it's the best approach doesn't even matter because Republicans in Washington haven't even tried to address the fairness issue. They keep arguing about economic theories.
As a result, 52 percent of voters now prefer a candidate who promises to raise taxes on the wealthy, while just 34 percent favor a candidate who opposes all tax hikes.
This highlights a larger problem faced by the Republican establishment. While most voters see Democrats as the party of big government, Republicans spend more time talking about government. They complain that it's too big, imposes too many regulations and has unsustainable deficits.
Under Obama, Democrats talk less about government and more about how their policies will affect life in America. It's the end result that a pragmatic nation cares about, not the policies.
For Republicans to succeed, they need to recognize that most voters don't care about limited government. But voters care deeply about the type of society a limited government makes possible.
Applying that logic to the current debate over the fiscal cliff, Republicans in Washington need to recognize that few voters believe this is a serious debate about deficit reduction. The president has made it instead a debate about fairness, and they need to respond on that level.

Obviously all of the above actually engage in something you've never heard of before (like most dums): ie "gainful employment".

We've all heard of "sockpuppets" here (of which, you are most decidedly one. However, I had to invent a new moniker for you: "Cockpuppet" (because you dangle on the end of so many)....

So, you would prefer that the Governor ignore the will of 65% of the voters in Oklahoma?
The will of those who approved this course of action, did a great disservice to themselves as well as to those who did not approve it. In my opinion, it is the voters who cut off their own noses, to spite the faces of everyone living in the state. That Mrs. Fallin gets credit for validating this stupidity is just a happy accident.

While I agree that mandating the purchase of individual health insurance is not a good idea, it is now Federal law, and my tax dollars are going to support its implementation in other states, when they could be far better used to follow the law, than to circumvent it here and support it elsewhere. The latter is not fiscally conservative, by any stretch of the imagination.

But then, of course, I'm not a tea-party Republican, or trying to get re-elected as Governor of Oklahoma, either.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has a solution for the Republican Party’s electoral woes: take on conservative talk radio.

On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Scarborough likened conservative talkers to schoolyard bullies and suggested Republicans “punch them in the face,” which is something Mitt Romney failed to do during his campaign, Scarborough said.

“What do you do to a schoolyard bully? You punch them in the face. You think any of these people on talk radio, if they’re punched in the face by a Republican nominee, you think they would push back?” Scarborough said.“No, they are cowards. They are bullies. Punch them in the face and they back off. Bullies do that. Mitt Romney, and we’ve said it nonstop, for two years, he would never stand up to these bullies. And so they framed his campaign, and he got his tail whipped … and we started saying this, Mika, in 2010 when Glenn Beck said the president was a racist who hates all white people. We said this is your Sister Souljah moment. And what did he do?”

The “Morning Joe” co-host continued by being very dismissive of voices on talk radio and said they were getting rich while the GOP suffered.

“Why don’t we keep following their pathway to a permanent minority, right?” Scarborough said.“Who are they to say anything about what the future of this party and of this movement is? They’re making tens of millions of dollars. They’re getting rich, and they’re not really hurting this country because they’re irrelevant. They can’t even nominate somebody in the Republican Party. But they are destroying the Republican Party every day.”
