: The last time I really felt the country was in good hands, was back when Ronald Reagan was President. Jobs were plentiful at that time, and the country was full of hope.
As I recall, the country starting turning sour after the first Gulf War. As I watched the oil tankers burning in the sand, and watch while Daddy Bush bought our boys home, leaving Saddam in his magnificent mansions, I got the feeling that..America was just not
going to be the same.
So, when Ron Jr. came out last week, damaging the name of his father to sell his book, I just had to let him have the whole Nobody's Perfect
column all by his 14-year old self.
That's how I see him. A big overgrown 14- year old, who's mad at dad.
Ron reported that he knew his dad had Alzheimer's when he saw him in a debate during his last four years in office. It was as if to imply just how ashamed he was of his "not very bright" father, and that the country was actually in danger.
As if we are not now
Gee Ronnie--- let me help you out here. Let's suppose we take your Dad's own words, and let's ALSO go on your assumption that your father wasn't playing with a full deck, and then put Obama's own words(your
favorite President) up against your dad, Ronald Reagan, in a debate.
We'll even tie one Alzheimer hand behind his back...just to be fair to you. DEBATE: Obama VS Reagan.Commentator-
Thanks everyone for coming tonight to the debate of ideals. President
Obama...since you won the coin toss, we'll start with you.Question-
Recently Mr. President, you have not only signed a START treaty with Russia, you are also making major cuts in our military all around. Do you think this is wise?Obama-
Let me say...uh...uh...uh... Now we're in the midst of not just advocating for change, not just calling for change - we're doing the grinding, sometimes frustrating work of delivering change - inch by inch, day by day. (Typical of liberals...they never answer the question directly.)Reagan-
Well,...(looks at Obama and smiles) Prince David
... Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives. We don't need to change America, America was just fine until you decided to change it. We're in greater danger today than we were the day after Pearl Harbor. Our military is absolutely incapable of defending this country.Question-
Right now, President Obama, the Congress is trying to get your HealthCare repealed. Many are starting to report that the cost of your plan to this nation will destroy it. How do you feel about that?Obama
- uh...uh...But if you - if what - the reports are true, what they're saying is, is that as a consequence of us getting 30 million additional people health care, at the margins that's going to increase our costs, we knew that.Reagan
- Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other....Question
- People are worried about the economy, President Obama...have you any plans to get us out of this recession:Obama-
I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody.Reagan-
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
And that's exactly what you are doing...(Reagan looks at Obama and looks confused...as if he is trying to remember his name.)
Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours.Question-
We understand that you call many of the American people tea baggers. They ARE upset. Nancy Pelosi calls them Astroturf. How do you really feel about this part of America?Obama-
It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.Reagan-
There you go again! I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life. These are the very heart and soul of our republic.Commentator-
Well, in the end I'd like to thank you both for coming here tonight..Obama-
Uh..uh...one more thing I'd like to say. We must tone down our conversations in view of the Arizona killings...Reagan-
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.Obama-
Uh...well, I am here to fundamentally change America!Reagan-
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will. Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Thank...you for this debate...Prince...(Reagan looks confused) Bubba...Obama
- My name is BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. (He says in anger)Reagan-
Oh? Well then, yes I know, I am just verifying that. But...I don't think I can trust you, and neither should the America people.(Nobody Makes this stuff up.)
Fundamentally speaking, all of us get a bit forgetful when we get older, and it's almost always the trivial stuff, but the important lessons of our lives never leave.
I'd put a President who may have forgot little trivial things, but got all the important things right, up against a President who never forgets anything, but gets all the important things wrong..any day of the week.
But, leave it to Ron's brother Michael, to sum it up nicely:"What a way for Ron to say Happy 100th Birthday Dad. Ron, my brother was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother,"
Ron, you may not be perfect, but we wish you'd try a little harder.
