Today we celebrate the 98th birthday of the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Wilson Reagan!
As Americans, we should reflect on the tremendous impact President Reagan had on our country in terms of patriotism, economic conditions, taxes, defense, and leadership. It is quite remarkable how far we have fallen in terms of Presidential leadership and economic "solutions" since Reagan's election in 1980.
To think that just yesterday, we witnessed the U.S. Senate debating a pork-filled "stimulus" bill worth nearly $1 trillion and listened to a President who gave a very unpresidential speech at a Democrat retreat in Wiliamsburg, Va. engaging in petty partisan politics and name-calling. When one becomes President of the United States, you need to demonstrate leadership, maturity, confidence, and a willingness to listen to others with different points of view.
It is simply another example of tye hypocrisy exhibited by Dems/Libs time and time again. Most notably, they claim to be the party of compassion and against corruption and bigotry, but in fact, they are the party that most represents those traits. So far, the only "Change" I've seen with President Obama is the nomination and appointment of tax cheats. Each passing day of the Obama Administration makes it that much clearer that the Reagan Revolution was the greatest political era of the second half of the 20th Century.
Happy Birthday, President Reagan!
