Skip to comments.Why You Can't Compare Hillary Clinton's Age to Ronald Reagan's
Posted on 04/24/2014 11:49:34 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55
The age comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Ronald Reagan seem as natural as they are nonsensical.
Yes, were Clinton to win in 2016, she would take office at age 69just as Reagan did in 1981. And yes, the comparison is often made when Clinton's critics and allies debate whether she has the health to serve out two presidential terms.

I think she’s far too old to be elected.
Not to mention her Anti-American, Communist loving, socialism stained life...
President Reagan NEVER had an ambassador gang-raped
and murdered to give weapons to an enemy of America.
Reptiles have a different life expectancy.
Reagan was the embodiment of a powerful leader, Hillary has cankles and fugly all over her.
1. Family history of multiple strokes.
I think that people are living longer than when Reagan was running for President the first time. I don’t think it made much difference for him except if he went for a third term (if allowed), it might have been dicey due to his dementia.
Golda Meir was the same age when she took office. But let’s not kid ourselves. Hillary Clinton is no Golda Meir!!
Reagan was not fired from the Watergate investigation team because he was unethical.
It would be racist! ....I mean SEXIST! ....and HOMOPHOBIC!
Hillary is to the left what Palin is to the right. And all that that implies.
She has no chance. She knows it and will not run. Heck, she doesn’t even have any political clout to help other candidates except for maybe a couple of dog catchers in the right towns.
It’s not just life expectancy - women have a higher rate of Alzheimer’s at a given year of life, and in general, are more debilitated in old age. At 85, 1 in 5 women have Alzheimer’s, while only 1 in 11 men do.
So sorry to besmirch the rosy liberal glow.
You forgot bigot and xenophobe.
Oh yes, and I forgot grandma-hater.
Yes, but Reagan looked young, even when he left office, and Hillary looks old and ugly. She looks like a dressed over bag lady who has been feasting at a well stocked dumpster. We don’t see too many videos of her walking away because she looks like two pigs wallowing in a gunnysack.
Reagan had accomplished something in his life by the time he ran for President. Hilly was the wife of a popular Democrat - which is her major claim to fame...
2. Reagan didn't suffer from Alzheimer's until after he left office.
And the most important. 3. Reagan LOVED America!
for a split second, I thought that was a photo of
She’s old AND she’s mean...
She was mean long before she was old.
Lemon, 50 is the new 40 for men
and 50 is ans has always been 60 for women.
So this would make Hitlery 78.
At 69 Reagan was still chopping wood when he stayed at his ranch. When’s the last time Hillary did ANYTHING physically strenuous?
Her ideas come from 19th Century socialism, making her too old to hold office.
Hillary Clinton has a huge and growing weight problem. I suspect...if the Republicans hold the House and take the Senate, she will not run. When a woman reaches almost seventy years old...and is gaining weight very fast......something is not right!!! I have already predicted Ms. Clinton will not run for POTUS In 2016!!! Plus there is much more true dirt coming out about her Benghazi fiasco with braindead, America hater, POTUS Obama!!! Stay tuned!!!
Hillary’s Secret Service codename is Flying Buttress.
Maybe that's because the men who would get it at those ages died already as men have lower life expectancy than women do.
Unless your point is we'd be better with a male POTUS who died in office than a woman who went nuts.
Reagan DID STUFF.
Granny Hillary has not yet returned all the things that she and Billary stole from us, We The People, when they vacated the White House, including those mysteriously missing computer keyboard letter keys!
The author absolutely misuses these statistics. Life expectancy is valid and useful when talking about entire populations. When talking about an individual, patient history (as you rightly point out) completely overwhelms the value of group statistics.
The country survived Wilson’s stroke, Roosevelt’s moribund last term, and Reagan’s slow decline. But IMO we would be better off with a president’s sudden death than Alzheimer’s.
” Whens the last time Hillary did ANYTHING physically strenuous?”
Well, she HAS been known to stretch and twist the truth...
Reagan successfully ran CA for more then a decade and made it one of the worldest largest economies.
I guess sticking with age comparisons is all they have
Definitely not a pretty picture, but then neither is Hillary.
“Hillary is to the left what Palin is to the right. And all that that implies.”
Way not true. Palin had the entire US media against her and actively trying to destroy her non stop for years, and it has been extremely effective to the point where even republicans don’t like her. Cankles, on the other hand has the total 110% support of the media, and will have nothing but active collusion to deify her.
Aging is brutal for many people.
Modern drugs keep people alive but don't necessarily retain their abilities.
Losing ability to do things, eventually walk, then stand and to think is ugly.
Eventually it brings a view of death as freedom.
And nursing care is very expensive.
I confess that when I posted that your very point was in my mind. The ONE difference is a compliant press for Hillary. It won’t matter. The alternative news sources have, in my opinion, reached critical mass in public perception as relatively reliable. Only the true believers would really go for Hillary unless the R’s offered up someone like McCain again.
“Whens the last time Hillary did ANYTHING physically strenuous?”
Well, she did fall off a bar stool in South America last year.
Favorite fantasy: Hillary V. Ted Cruz in the debates
She would be so pathetic that not even Billy Jeff would vote for her.
Hillary had a stroke and couldn’t attend the hearings on Benghazi. She is too ill to ru for elected office.
However, she will take the 20 mil or so her useful idiots will raise for her. Will be a good war heat when Chelsea starts running for public office.
She should move to Japan or China and pretend to be an Empress or sumthin’.. here, she’s ‘dead meat’.
age ? an issue?
NJ swings and misses..
I predict she will run, with no intention of serving out her term. The real candidate will be her vice-presidential nominee who she will step aside for soon after taking office.
Clinton / Warren in ‘16
does that get yur drooling or what?
