    Since O is back in town, Timmy was asking his audience if anyone had ever been to one of these costly meet and greet fundraisers and met any of our Presidents. I'm going in and out of the room with the radio on, so I didn't catch the beginning of this one call, but the woman had been to one for Ronald Reagan. When she got her chance for the quick one-on--one moment with President Reagan, she asked him about the recent time when, at a sound check for a public event, he made that crack about dropping the bombs...

    The Hill ^ | 2/07/14 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.) on Thursday introduced legislation naming a 4,000-foot peak in his home state "Mount Reagan" after former President Reagan. Heck's bill was introduced on Reagan's birthday, and supports an effort by the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project (RRLP) to name the peak after the former president. "He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President," Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and chairman of the RRLP, said last year. "Adding his name to the short list of great American presidents who have mountains named after them is an honor richly deserved." Heck's...

    Ronald Reagan Quotes: "socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it." "Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose." "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

    President Barack Obama said the White House proposed “Buffet Rule” could be named the “Reagan Rule,” referring to former Republican President Ronald Reagan as a “wild-eyed, Socialist, tax hiking class warrior.” “This President gave another speech where he said it was ‘crazy’ — that’s a quote — that certain tax loopholes make it possible for multimillionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10 percent of his salary,” Obama said at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building Wednesday. “That wild-eyed, socialist, tax-hiking class warrior was Ronald Reagan.” Obama floated the idea of renaming the “Buffet Rule,” which would require...

    On March 31, 1981 at precisely 2:27 pm, six gunshots rang out just outside the VIP entrance to the Washington Hilton. Moments later, as three felled men lay bleeding on the ground outside the hotel, an armored limousine carrying the President of the United States raced away from the scene. Though it wasn’t immediately apparent, the president had been shot. Ronald Wilson Reagan was just weeks into his first term in office when he was struck in the side by a deflected bullet fired by a mentally deranged would-be assassin.

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's message to the country Wednesday night boiled down to a Reaganesque mantra: Stay the course. Stick with the man they elected 14 months ago to change Washington . Trust that his stimulus plan, now projected to cost $862 billion , is lifting the country out of its worst economic mess in 80 years. Push forward to enact the rest of his blueprint, including at least some overhaul of the country's health care system, to build a strong recovery.
