  • Rand Paul Doesna t Know Much about Reagana s Budgets

    National Review Online ^ | Patrick Brennan
    Ramesh and Reason’s Nick Gillespie have been going back and forth over Rand Paul’s claim (from a number of years ago) that Jimmy Carter was a more fiscally conservative president than Ronald Reagan. Mother Jones collected a series of appearances over the years in which the Kentuckian argues that Reagan’s budget performance, compared with Carter’s, is evidence Republicans don’t really mean it when they claim the mantle of fiscal conservatism. Gillespie argues that Reagan’s deficits means he wasn’t a fiscal conservative, while Ramesh argues (and Nick seems to agree to some extent) that probably a better measure is rate of increases in spending...

    The following are photos taken on Friday, September 20, 2013 at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park in Temecula, California. The Reagan statue and monument was likely vandalized either the night before or in the early morning hours of Friday September 20. The cause of the damage appears to be vandalism by arson. Local police were called to the scene and an investigation is ongoing. - Photo of the Reagan Monument with missing damaged tiles. - The missing/vandalized tiles were removed by city staff ... notice the burn marks at the base of the structure. - Burned/damaged tiles on both side...

  • Happy 101st Birthday Mr Reagan

    Today is February 6th, 2012. Mr Ronald Wilson Reagan would've been 101 years old today. Happy Birthday, Mr. Reagan. As a small token of commemoration, I would like to put focus on what I think is the most important thing he ever said, and he said a whole lot worth remembering. Our Founding Fathers, here in this country, brought about the only true revolution that has ever taken place in man's history. Every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rulers for another set of rulers. But only here did that little band of men so advanced beyond their time...

    What would Reagan do? Rick Reiss Friday, April 10th, 2009 Last month, members of the Temecula community met at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park to celebrate “Can Do” Day. The annual Can Do Day event recognizes the time when President Ronald Reagan commended the people of Temecula for their self-reliance and initiative in building the sports park that now bears his name. On March 3, 1983, while addressing the US Olympic committee, President Reagan remarked, “The folks in a rather small town, Temecula…got together and built themselves a sports park, held fundraising barbecues and dinners. And those who didn’t have...

    The other night Jimmy Carter popped up on the Larry King show, live via satellite, standing in a ski lodge and wearing a fur-lined outdoorsman jacket as though he'd just come in from felling a spruce. He was publicizing an upcoming auction in which he would sell the furniture he'd been making. Also his wine. This may have come to many viewers as a surprise: There is Jimmy Carter Wine. The former president didn't say how he made it, but you know what it's probably called: peanut noir. Also he plans to sell his paintings. "My paintings," he told King,...

    The American Prowler ^ | 11/4/2005 | Paul Beston
    Even back in November 1980, a time that seems so far removed from our technological age, political campaigns knew things long before the voters did. Both Ronald Reagan's and Jimmy Carter's insiders understood a day or so before the election that the President was done for. Weekend polling told Patrick Caddell what he needed to know, and he passed the word along to Carter. Reagan was going to become the next president. For all the American people knew, the race was still essentially a toss-up, though it had seemed to be moving slightly in Reagan's direction. The week before, the...

    Father Hesburgh, I thank you very much and for so many things. The distinguished honor that you've conferred upon me here today, I must say, however, compounds a sense of guilt that I have nursed for almost 50 years. I thought the first degree I was given was honorary. [Laughter] But it's wonderful to be here today with Governor Orr, Governor Bowen, Senators Lugar and Quayle, and Representative Hiler, these distinguished honorees, the trustees, administration, faculty, students, and friends of Notre Dame and, most important, the graduating class of 1981. I'm the fifth President of the United States to address...

    June 8, 2004 (Springfield) — A stretch of Interstate 88, which passes near Ronald Reagan's birthplace and his boyhood home, was renamed Tuesday in honor of the late president. Gov. Rod Blagojevich issued an executive order declaring part of I-88 the "Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway." The east-west interstate runs along the southern edge of Dixon, where Reagan grew up, and 10 miles north of Tampico, where the nation's 40th president was born in 1911 in a four-room apartment over the general store. "Now, when people drive on I-88, they'll remember Ronald Reagan and everything he did for our country," Blagojevich...

    I apologize if this has already been discussed, but is there some way that Freepers can send our personal condolences to Nancy Reagan? We all know how much she loved President Reagan, and her grief right now must be terrible. What a strong, tremendous lady she is. President Reagan was so fortunate to have her as a wife and a caregiver these past 10 years. She deserves to hear from all of us how much we loved President Reagan, how grateful we are for his life and service, and how we will keep her in our prayers.

    PEORIA - Former President Ronald Reagan's death Saturday means the passing of a highly influential president and a gifted communicator, U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood said Saturday. And those who knew him more intimately, surviving fellow classmates at Eureka College, said they'll remember Reagan as a charismatic, highly involved classmate with strong ties to his school - and one determined to make $5,000 a year. Reagan, the nation's 40th president who served from 1981 to 1989, died Saturday afternoon at 93 after a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Reagan lived longer than any U.S. president and was the only president born...

    He will turn 90 this Tuesday, but in all likelihood he will barely be aware of it. The cruelty of Alzheimer's has robbed Ronald Reagan of the capacity for clear memory. But that doesn't apply to the rest of us. He seems, in some respects, an historical oddity now, his political and cultural presence obscured in America by the Clinton psychodrama and the Bush dynasty. But the truth is, his successors do not begin to compare either in achievement or legacy. Reagan is still, in my view, the architect of our modern world, and nowhere is this clearer than...
