Brown: Ronald Reagan's Timeless Christmas Gift
Western Journalism article copied onto GOP USA.com ^ | December 18, 2012 | By Floyd and Marybeth Brown

Obama spent his Christmas vacationing in Hawaii. Consider this, from gopusa.com:

"Although President Reagan could have spent his White House Christmases with family at his beloved ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., he instead stayed in Washington, D.C. This way, his sacrifice allowed Secret Service agents and other aides to spend Christmas at home with their families. He was a thoughtful person."

Lest some lib think that gopusa.com is making this up, from time.com:

(like Clinton) "President Reagan also remained in Washington over Christmas — reportedly so members of the Secret Service could be near their families"

Notice Time's use of the word "reportedly"; they just can't bear to give Reagan any credit.

I am also amused by the (like Clinton) as if Reagan followed the criminal instead of the other way around. The media always does it’s best to diminish Republicans while inflating the demoncrats.

You both might be victims of my clumsy editing. I, not Time, put the (like Clinton) in before the actual quote. I did it to clarify what Time meant by the word "also."

Sorry for any confusion!

Reagan’s socks had more class than Obama.
