He was blunt. He was rude. He was arrogant. He was in your face, but always "to" your face. And, in a Washington world that kowtowed to power, he kowtowed to nobody.
He had a famous Irish temper, but a wicked Irish grin.

(A closed mouth gathers no feet. (Too bad Byrd has NOT learned that.))
I listened to Neil's 'common sense' today. He paid a high tribute to a man well deserving of same. Neil appeared to be on the verge of a tear. I like that guy.

Classy guy, this Cavuto.
Thanks for having included me on your list.

He put a company called Merrill Lynch on the map...
Merrill was "on the map" long before Donald Regan came along.

He was hell-bent, but he was honorable.
He was devilish, but he was decent.
RIP to one of the old guard.
Too bad these personality traits are considered pathologies today, to be analyzed and drugged out of existence.
Kudos to Neil for honoring them.

WOW!!!! Sounds like something Peggy Noonan would write...thanks for the post.
Unfortunately, I can't really identify with today's Common Sense... I'm not old enough to remember the Reagan Administration.

And what honorable traits to have. Something the bleeeding heart liberals know nothing about

Ah, well age has it's advantages then. Just when I was feeling down because of arriving in middle age - here comes something to make me appreciate "being there."
When I graduated from college, Jimmy Carter was president. Interest rates, inflation and unemployment were sky high. I mean, like 18%-range mortgage rates. Embassy employees were hostage in Iran. Gas lines due to the arab oil embargo. I had a hard time finding a job. I truly, truly believed that I would never be able to afford to own a house. Life pretty much s*cked.
Then came Ronald Reagan. At the time, I was still suffering from the liberal indoctrination from the education establishment in this country and didn't appreciate what he did at the time. But, thanks to Reagan, our military was restored, our economy was restored, and, dare I say, our hope in the future was restored.
Keep hanging around FR, you'll learn a lot!
Thanks for the words. I used to be liberally-indoctrinated up until last summer (my post-high school/pre-college summer), when I decided to listen to Rush Limbaugh out of boredom.
