Ronald Reagan can count 40 states that still remember the Gipper fondly.
On his 102nd birthday Wednesday, 40 states -- a record-have proclaimed February 6 "Ronald Reagan Day." Eight Democratic governors have refused to recognize Reagan Day and two others are on the fence.
The eight governors who have refused to issue a proclamation declaring Ronald Reagan Day in their states:
Arkansas - Mike Beebe (D)
Delaware - Jack Markell (D)
Hawaii - Neil Abercrombie (D)
Kentucky - Steve Beshear (D)
Massachusetts - Deval Patrick (D)
Minnesota - Mark Dayton (D)
Oregon - John Kitzhaber (D)
Vermont - Peter Shumlin (D)
The two governors who have not yet decided whether or not to issue a proclamation declaring Ronald Reagan Day in their states:
Connecticut - Dannel Malloy (D)
Washington - Jay Inslee (D)
Those governors would quicker honor VI Lenin day”
How small these Democrat governors are! If you live in such a benighted state, you are to be pitied.
No, they are too busy getting ready for the new calander...Anno Soetoro
Kentucky is politically schitzo.
Yet a record number, 40 states honor the great communicator.
Huckster so damaged the AR GOP, he all but handed the office to Democrat Beebe. We’ll likely get the Governorship back next year as the AR Dems have similarly imploded under Beebe.
