Posted on 02/06/2010 6:52:13 AM PST by DollyCali

Happy Birthday to the Gipper!

Number 40

Born Feb. 6, 1911 in Tampico, Ill.

A movie star in politics?

NOT a legend in his own time

MAN WE MISS HIM.

Happy birthday to our man Ronald Reagan.

Help us honor one of the great leaders of our time. Perfect? No .. but a man with vision, honor & strength to do the right thing and at the right time as leader of the free world and our country.

Happy Birthday Gipper!

Ah, Ronaldus Maximus! How I miss him every time I hear the word ‘President’! He was a once-in-a lifetime leader, a man we needed when we needed him. Oh, how we need him now!I was honored to have been in the same building with him during the RNC here in New Orleans- what a thrill, even far away!
God Bless him, and thank God for him!

How we miss him!

Fox showed a short tour of the Reagan Presidential Library and it looks awesome! Not only does it have a replica of the Oval Office - there is a replica of the situation room where kids can take their seats around the big table and watch the invasion of Grenada scenario unfold and participate in the decisions that were being made....so very cool!

Please pass the Kleeex.

I am so fortunate to live in a nation that elected a man such as Ronald Reagan to the Presidency. Looking back, I realize that it was a high honor to have been able to pull the lever.

Twice

We’ll do it again.

We’ll do it again.

We will.

Hi Dolly! You always know how to make me blush!! I hope you are well.

Everything is great on the Lando front. Mrs. Lando still loves me and my sons are growing up to be fine men. Me? Just getting cranky! (Not really)

He was a good man Dolly and I'll always remember how proud I was the day he was elected, and how sad I was to see him leave.

“As your nominee, I pledge to restore to the federal government the capacity to do the people’s work without dominating their lives. I pledge to you a government that will not only work well, but wisely; its ability to act tempered by prudence and its willingness to do good balanced by the knowledge that government is never more dangerous than when our desire to have it help us blinds us to its great power to harm us.”

-Ronald Reagan, 1980.

Happy Birthday President Reagan!

These days I’m feeling like he’s our Obi-Wan kenobi. “Help us President Reagan, you’re our only hope!”

Because I do hope he’s doing all he can from where he is to help us Americans.

“Our enemies may be irrational, even outright insane, driven by nationalism, religion, ethnicity or ideology. They do not fear the United States for its diplomatic skills or the number of automobiles and software programs it produces. They respect only the firepower of our tanks, planes and helicopter gunships.”

— Ronald Reagan
