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)
TOPICS: Chit/Chat; History
KEYWORDS: birthday; reagan
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.

I'd like to hear why they won't honor President Reagan. We KNOW why. I'd like to hear them SAY it to the public, to their constituents.
If I were a Democrat, I think I would also try to ignore Ronald Reagan's birthday. 1981-1988 were probably the worst 8 years for Democrats since 1900.
That is 8 years they are trying to airbrush away. Like Stalin airbrushed Lenin out of all official photos.

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.
