Just how in the tank for President Obama is MSNBC contributor Ronald Reagan?
On Friday's Hardball, he actually said Michelle Obama gave the "best speech by a first lady I have ever seen, and, you know, all due respect to my own mother" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
In a gushing wrap-up of the just-ended Democratic National Convention, host Chris Matthews played clips from Mrs. Obama's speech Tuesday.
When they were finished, Reagan said, Best speech by a first lady I have ever seen, and, you know, all due respect to my own mother, and I havent reviewed all of Eleanor Roosevelts remarks that she ever gave. But best speech by a first lady I think I have ever seen.
Honestly, how biased must a person be to say on national television that someone was better than his own mother?
Wouldn't most people have said "excluding my mom, of course" out of mere respect?
Not Ron, apparently.
For his part, Matthews of course agreed with his guest, but later commented, Neither of these first ladies nor the candidate for first lady can sing like your mom can. They cant sing Second Hand Rose like she did.
Well, thats true, Reagan said.
Some consolation prize, Ron. You're a heck of a son.
I can not beleive that RR, Jr came from the loins of Ronald Reagan. I secretly hope that Nancy Reagan had an affair.
Unlike the ballerina, talk doesn’t do much for me. Talk is cheap. I’m an action kinda guy. I don’t need the bull****.
overdone,fake and lied alot
Sharper than a serpents tooth.....
I always thought Michael was more like Ronald Reagan then Ron.
He’s never grown past his adolescence and rebellion against daddy. A stunted adult is a sad person indeed.
I loath this creature.
FU Ron. You put your dad’s name to shame. You will never amount to anything worth a $h!t. Please do us a favor, please change you name !
Reminds me of a great lyric from the song California Justice by Five for Fighting -
“Every country needs a broken arrow, at least we gave you Ronnie Reagan’s son and Charo”
Does he even realize that the speech was written for her?
No surprise coming from Ron, he’s in love with Barack.
You know this guy is an absolute jerk. I know some folks here are furious at the Cheney’s for supporting their lesbian daughter and quite frankly, I wish she weren’t living that lifestyle. However, I do give her credit for one thing. She does seem to keep her mouth closed and lives her life quietly.
Ron Jr’s shoes are much lighter.
He’s trying to gain street cred with the MSM by dissing his mother.
If he shows sufficient disdain for mom & dad, he thinks he might breath some life into his dead entertainment career.
He works for NBC, no longer MSNBC, so that should tell you something.
