Requiescat In Pace
Ronald Reagan, succumbing to Alzheimer’s disease and age, died today.
I didn’t agree with everything Mr. Reagan stood for. I don’t think there’s a politician I ever will agree wholly with, but I respect him for what he did, and for very much of what he said.
When he stood before the Berlin wall and said “Mr. Gorbachev, tear this wall down!” I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud of a President.
Except maybe when it came down.
You want to know why I’m voting for Bush this November?
Because he stands for something.
And Kerry most definitely does not.
Rest now, Mr. Reagan. You did a helluva job.
