Ron Reagan: Palin has nothing in common with dad
The Associated Press ^ | 02/04/2011 | AP

Posted on 02/04/2011 10:57:44 AM PST by speciallybland

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sarah Palin is honoring one Reagan and offending another with the same speech.

The former Alaska governor is scheduled to speak in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Friday at a tribute to former President Ronald Reagan — just one of the celebrations marking the centennial of the 40th president's birth on Feb. 6.

But his son, Ron Reagan, tells The Associated Press he doesn't see anything in common between his dad and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, who was invited to speak by the event's sponsor, the conservative Young America's Foundation.

"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news," Reagan says.

"She is not a serious candidate for president and never has been," said Reagan, a political independent whose politics lean left.

I guess Ron doesn’t understand what his father did in the decade or so leading up to his presidency. This guy needs a muzzle.

Ron Reagan: Palin has nothing in common with dad

More accurately, Ron, Jr. seems to have nothing in common with his dad, at least from what the public has seen of Jr.

The ballerina's got a good press agent, who reminds him that any negative mention of Palin will get his name in the news.

Seriously, who on earth would buy this book though? Reagan fans? Reagan haters? Fans of the inarticulate irrelevant ranting relatives of the powerful?

It doesn't really have an audience.

Michael Reagan said it best, Ron Reagan was an embarrassment when his Dad was alive and he is an even bigger embarrassment now..even Patti Davis, a woman who showed off her ta ta’s in Playboy magazine has gotten into the Palin/Bachmann bashing..Michael Reagan is more of a TRUE Reagan even though he wasn’t a Reagan by blood then those two imbeciles

Yes, she does.

Governor Palin and President Reagan are both being lied about and smeared by an effeminate weenie named Ron Reagan...

Little Runny was rejected by his dad, for reasons that have become obvious, and has always been the most hateful of the all Reagan enemies. He remains the same today - a pathetically wounded little sparrow whose hatred can not be abated.

Typical AP spin. Soften the dancer's leftism to create a better hit piece against Palin.

On the other hand, Palin and Ron Reagan do have something in common; sex with men.

Yeah, sure , you bone-headed, mincing leech.
That’s why she’s been invited to be the keynote speaker tonight at the Young American’s foundation for its Reagan 100 Opening Banquet at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California, for the 100th anniversary celebration of President Reagan’s birthday.

Let this be a lesson to people. Be extremely careful when you’re tempted to judge the parent by the actions of their children.

There was one common factor in the parenting of Maureen, Michael, Patty, and Ron.

There were two additional separate factors involved with the parenting of Maureen and Michael vs Patty and Ron.

It does cause one to ponder...

Little Ronnie Prescott, the chinless, parrot nose one note wonder in no way resembles Ronald Reagan. He definitely is not a chip off the ol’ block, rather Little Ronnie is more like dandruff on a suit jacket.

Why can't I shake the suspicion, that somewhere there is a much taller, better looking and more intelligent man, born at the same hospital, on the same day as Ron Jr., who has always wondered why he never fit in with his nutty, lefty parents and siblings? Come to think of it, he's probably a FReeper.

Too bad I got here late, nobody will see this.

Ron did not know his father and certainly does not know Sarah Palin.

But what is totally ironic is this dip calling Palin a soap opera.

Guess he forgot his day hosted Death Valley Days for 20 MULE TEAM BORAX...a “natural laundry booster.”

Ass clown.

Little ballerina is here in St. Louis today to do a book signing. If it weren’t for the cold and the snow, I would be tempted to go and tell him what I think of his book and his opinions.
Probably I would be arrested so I prefer to get out my book about his Father and reminisce and cry.

Ron is nothing like his father which is well evidenced. In fact, I would say he’s an embarrassment to his family including his father and his memory.

What it is we look for is what we see.

If we look for some form of not being perfect ... we find it. Jesus was criticized. It was not true. To criticize is easy. Jesus lived a perfect life.

When we look for good in a person ... it is there. In Sarah Palin’s case ... an unusual amount of good. Not perfect. GOOD!

She is a terrific communicator. She has character, she is honest, she stands against big government, for family values, against abortion, for conservative principles,
she is very smart, she knows America must drill of our own oil. Everyone is Washington makes huge monies. She is earning money like anyone else, that writes books, appears on television and like Clinton gives many speeches.

You Ron are showing your own ignorance. It is a moot point. Michael sees much of your Dad and his Dad in Sarah so get over your Ronald Reagan was a conservative Republican. Shame on anyone tearing down Ronald Reagan's record and beliefs.

Ron and Patty are not conservatives. Liberals are about ling to win. Whatever it takes to win, they do. Dishonest, Illegal, or total criminal activity. All in the name of winning. They lose.

Guess, as a boy, Ronnie got kicked in the head by one of those Missouri elk when they were making the commercial.

Ron bears no resemblance to his dad. Thank God for Michael, however.
