In Memorium

Ten years ago we lost one of the greatest men to ever sit in the Oval Office. It was one of only two times I have ever wept as an adult.

    God, has it only been ten years? I remember watching his state funeral on TV, expecting some low class disrespectful leftist group to crap all over it….but it never happened, what I saw was a lot of respect and a lot of love shown to Nancy by regular Americans. I remember when she stepped out of the Limo to enter the National Cathedral and someone shouted “God bless you Mrs. Reagan”, then someone else shouted “We love you Nancy”. Then she turned and acknowledged them with a wave, that’s when I got misty…..what class.

    do you think the Taliban would be talking about kidnapping more Americans if the Gipper were in charge?

    I’m going to echo Jay – it feels like at least 20 years since he died.

    …it feels like 50 since we had an actual President…. who was, unsurprisingly, the same man.

    After the Viet Nam doldrums, and the Carter “malaise”, it was refreshing to have someone in the office of CinC who understood what we were, and what we were trying to do, AND thought it was a good idea.

    Between 1972 and today, Ronald Reagan was the only CinC that I’ve been proud to acknowledge.
